Shippin' Out Nov. 13-19: Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Super Mario 3D Land

Ezio and Mario bring the Italian flavor to new-release shelves alongside Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Saints Row: The Third.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 may have come out last week, but that doesn't mean there aren't any more big multiplayer games or shooters on the way. Two Italians are back this week with Ezio in Assassin's Creed: Revelations and Mario in Super Mario 3D Land. Master Chief is set to deliver a big dose of nostalgia with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, as could Jurassic Park: The Game. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 introduces more fighters, and Saints Row: The Third will do something…ridiculous.

Ezio wraps up his Assassin's Creed run this week.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations marks the close of Ezio's story and Ubisoft's second crack at its sneaky style of multiplayer on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. This time out, Ezio will seek out the haunts of original Assassin's Creed protagonist Altair, visiting such Middle East strongholds as the Ottoman Empire's Constantinople. There, Ezio will once again take up arms against the Templar order.

Meanwhile, Mario is making his first outing on the 3DS in Super Mario 3D Land. Super Mario 3D Land contains both 2D and 3D sequences with an all-new perspective on platforming that puts a twist on the traditional Mario formula, in which players are tasked with traversing the game's eight worlds on another quest to save the princess.

The game that defined the Xbox is back and is prettier than ever on the Xbox 360. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary returns to Master Chief's introduction and layers on a helping of HD graphics. The full package includes a remastered campaign, Xbox Live co-op support, and seven bundled multiplayer maps.

Anyone who played Saints Row 2 knows the series has its quirks. Saints Row: The Third for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC looks to build upon those quirks and deliver full-blown mania. The Third picks up with the player running the Third Street Saints. Once a small-town gang, the Saints have grown to control the organized crime within Stilwater and even have their own brand, with licensed sneakers, energy drinks, and bobbleheads.

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 brings the over-the-top fighting mash-up back for another round with 12 new characters over Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which debuted in February. The full roster of new fighters includes Nova, Rocket Racoon, Iron Fist, Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, and Hawkeye on the Marvel side. Capcom's corner gains Frank West, Vergil, Phoenix Wright, Nemesis, Firebrand, and Strider. Eight new stages and various gameplay enhancements are also part of the new $40 package for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Jurassic Park: The Game represents Telltale Games' second movie-to-game adaptation in the past year. The story takes place during the events of the 1993 film of the same name, but it follows a different set of characters. It focuses on a chief veterinarian at the park and his young daughter as they try to make their way across a tropical island while avoiding destructive--and often hungry--dinosaurs running amok. Jurassic Park: The Game is another $40 title set for release on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Mac.

For further details, visit GameSpot's New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later this week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.

@DrKill09 You say forget Mario and Assassins Creed, but your the last person I would ever get advice on what game to get, considering you think Duke Nukem forever is a good game.

I'll only be getting Mario this week. While there are a ton of fantastic games that come out on Tuesday, I won't be playing any of them because I just bought Skyrim and it's going to take a the very least a month of my time...

You know a week is packed when GS chooses to not comment on a new Need For Speed game being released. More games released this Tuesday than any other day of the year I believe, and more big budget ones too.

@tjoeb123 I believe the story is the Rabbids were meant to be a villain in a new traditional rayman platformer, but it morphed into a minigame compilation. I have no Rabbid games opinion.

HOLY Mother of God! look at all those games on one day!!!!

@Spacerac Or rabbits. The rabbits can go home or to the moon, and STAY there. Not to mention the fact that the Rabbids games had nothing to do with Rayman at all from what I understand. Then again, I didn't play those games, so...

"Don't you recognize me? It'sa me, Mario!" Had to smile at that line in AC2. And Rayman Origins BETTER sell. It's about time we had a real game that doesn't feature humans and isn't all realistic and serious.

So many games coming out on Tuesday... plus only one game comes out on Sunday; Mario. It really sets it apart. There's a lot of great games coming out, but there are simply so many... they're all coming in at once; there's simply no time to play it all. Especially if that time is made up of The Witcher 2 and Skyrim gameplay...
