New video games: April 5, 2009


I usually publish this on Mondays, but the biggest gaming news of the week is easily the release of Nintendo’s DSi handheld system. Available today in blue or black for $169.99, the DSi improves on the DS with two built-in cameras, voice recorder and memory card slot. Here are some older posts with more detailed information on the new hardware:

Here are the coming week’s other significant releases:

>> Rhythm Heaven (Nintendo DS/DSi, $29.99, rated E for everyone)

>> Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena (multi, $59.99, rated M for mature)

Also: The Godfather II (multi) and Garfield Gets Real (Nintendo DS and Wii)

Next week: Escape the Museum (Nintendo Wii), Guitar Hero Metallica (PlayStation 2) and The Dark Spire (Nintendo DS)

This list is not exhaustive. See something I overlooked? How dare I! Let me know in the comments section below!

Here and there ...
