New Releases: Video Games (February 7, 2011)

Flex your Mario muscles, your brain muscle or drive muscle cars in this week’s new video game releases!

Mario Sports MixBuy Now!
Mario and King Koopa settle their differences on the basketball court, the hockey rink, the volleyball court, and the dodgeball… place. Much more civilized than all that kidnapping/rescuing of Princess Peach. (Wii)

Test Drive Unlimited 2Buy Now!
These racing games always talk about how realistic they are, but they’re always about driving Lamborghinis on the beachside roads of Ibiza — never getting stuck in stand-still traffic in a Hyundai. Weird. (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC)

You Don’t Know JackBuy Now!
Actually, the snarky party trivia game has been around since 1995, so we’re betting a great many people know Jack at this point. (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC)

Hyperdimension NeptuniaBuy Now!
Players control a goddess who is also a videogame console. She battles a videogame piracy computer, who is also a goddess. You may or may not be shocked to learn this game was made in Japan. (PlayStation 3)

DungeonsBuy Now!
You’re a villain in a castle filled with death traps, several heroes that want to kill you, an evil ex-girlfriend that hates your guts and even eviler bosses that force you to do busywork all day. If it weren’t for the death traps, this game would be kinda depressing. (PC)

Body and Brain ConnectionBuy Now!
The first “brain training”-type game for the Xbox Kinect helps you exercise your noodle with math, logic and memory puzzles. If you were hoping to train your brain by shooting evil aliens with rocket launchers, sorry. (Xbox 360)

Trinity: Souls of Zill O’llBuy Now!
On the world of Vyashion, created by the god Notoon, the prophecy of Chancellor Zotor says that King Balor is going to die. Players control three heroes, we’re guessing none of which are named “Steve.” (PlayStation 3)

Naruto Shippuden: Shinobi RumbleBuy Now!
A group of incredibly brightly clad ninja fight for supremacy in this handheld combat game based on the hit anime series. Remember back in the old days, when ninjas had to wear black and sneak around? (Nintendo DS)
