Shippin' Out: February 21-27: Heavy Rain
Quantic Dream's PS3-exclusive thriller leads slate of new releases including Endless Ocean: Blue World, Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing, Napoleon: Total War.
This week's release forecast calls for Heavy Rain, as developer Quantic Dream launches its long-awaited PlayStation 3-exclusive adventure game. Set in a modern-day metropolis, Heavy Rain is a noir-tinged thriller that puts players in control of a handful of characters involved in the search for a serial killer with a penchant for origami.
The M-rated adventure isn't the only notable new release of the week. In more family-friendly fare, Nintendo has the follow-up to its Wii deep-sea exploration game with Endless Ocean: Blue World, while Sega puts the mascot pedal to the metal with Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.
Over on the PC, The Creative Assembly will launch the latest installment in its signature real-time strategy series with Napoleon: Total War. As its name suggests, Napoleon: Total War follows legendary French general and (later) Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, illustrating his ascent and fall from power through the battles he waged on the battlefield.
There are still a few more frontline releases hitting shelves this week. NIS America's Hit Maker-developed role-playing game Last Rebellion arrives in stores, as does Atlus' Metal Slug XX, the latest in SNK Playmore's long line of 2D arcade action games. Finally, Deep Silver is set to bring out (albeit belatedly) the Xbox 360 edition of its medieval RPG Risen. The game first debuted on the PC in October.
For further details on the week's games, visit GameSpot's New Releases page. The full list of downloadable games on the PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Marketplace, and the Wii Shop Channel will be revealed later this week. Release dates are based on retailer listings and are subject to change.
