New release slate led by launch of Sony's newest portable, Starbreeze's shooter reboot; Asura's Wrath, Metal Gear Solid 3D, and PS Vita launch titles also out.
Last week, Sony said the the PlayStation Vita will perform better in the United States than it did in Japan. The process of judging whether or not that claim is true begins this week, as the PS Vita officially releases on Wednesday alongside Syndicate, Asura's Wrath, Metal Gear Solid 3D, and a host of PS Vita launch games.
Leading all new releases this week is the PS Vita hardware in North America, Europe, and Australia. Sony's newest portable gaming device will be available on Wednesday in two editions: a $250 Wi-Fi model and a $300 3G version.
While many of the PS Vita's launch games, including Little Deviants and Uncharted: Golden Abyss, debuted last week, even more Vita games drop this week. These include Army Corps of Hell, Dynasty Warriors Next, Michael Jackson The Experience, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, and Touch my Katamari.
Also out this week is Starbreeze's new shooter Syndicate for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3. The game takes place in a grim corporation-run future, and has players controlling the technologically augmented Eurocorp prototype agent Miles Kilo. The game also sports multiplayer in the form of cooperative missions.
Another big-name game out this week is Capcom's Asura's Wrath for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The game follows the variably armed and very angry Asura as he pursues a group of seven "Guardian Generals" who killed his wife (framing him in the process) and absconded with his daughter.
While the PS Vita might be the portable highlight of the week, Nintendo's 3DS also welcomes a new marquee title this week. Gamers can pick up Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D for the system this week. The title is a port of the PlayStation 2 stealth game with tweaks designed to take advantage of the 3DS hardware. These include 3D visuals, as well as touch-pad and camera support.
