Shippin' Out February 13-19: Marvel vs. Capcom 3

New release slate championed by Capcom's latest fighting game; Gears of War Triple Pack, Dragon Quest VI DS also out.

Last week You Don't Know Jack and Mario Sports Mix led all releases, but this week's focus is more pugnacious.

Leading the pack this week is Capcom's Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The latest crossover title from Capcom pits characters from the Marvel Comics universe against Capcom's suite of fighters. On the comics side, Spider-Man, Captain America, and Iron Man will be featured in the game. And in Capcom's corner, Ryu, Chris Redfield, and Dante highlight just a fraction of the full roster.

Ryu looks to be winning this fight.

Also out this week is the Gears of War Triple Pack for the Xbox 360. This bundle includes the original Gears of War, Gears of War 2, and Gears of War 2: All Fronts Collection, which boasts 19 multiplayer maps and the single-player mission Road to Ruin.

On-the-go gamers can pick up the latest Dragon Quest title this week for the Nintendo DS. Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation, the portable remake of 1995's SNES role-playing game, arrives on Valentine's Day.

Another new portable title out this week is Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for the PSP. The title is a remake featuring extra subplots, new and redesigned characters, and added gameplay mechanics that let players turn back time, either to change the story's direction by revisiting key plot points or to replay critical points of individual battles for a better outcome.

Gamers who prefer not to use a controller can pick up two new Kinect titles this week. THQ's Dance Paradise and Brunswick Pro Bowling are both out on Tuesday.
