    So I thought I'd do a weekly "whats out this week" thing, I've done this before but kinda half assed. This time I'm using all of my ass and supply more details, videos and screens of the games. Thought I'd do this for a couple of weeks, if no ones interested in this then I'll stop.

    So heres this weeks expected releases:


    April 24th
    SNK Vs Capcom: Card Fighters - US Release
    Dealing out the first Card Fighters Clash since the Neo Geo Pocket version in 2000, this DS game features the same card battle match-ups between Capcom and SNK stars of the NGP classic.

    With over 300 cards, players can build decks of characters pulled from the annals of SNK and Capcom gaming history for the ultimate strategic battle.

    Previous titles: Metal Slug Anthology, Metal Slug Advance, NeoGeo Battle Coliseum, King of Fighters: Maximum Impact 3.

    Looking forward to this as I still play the NGPC one every now and again and its the only card battler that I've gotten fully into. No wi-fi mode though [​IMG]


    April 26th
    Panel de Pon - Japanese Release
    Developed by Intelligent Systems, Panel de Pon DS is a DS installment in the puzzle title that's variously known as Tetris Attack, Pokemon Puzzle League and Pokemon Puzzle Challenge. The rules are different from Tetris, but the point is the same: eliminate tiles and make combos. The DS version adds a few elements to the mix, including the expected stylus-based controls. Just like Tetris, you'll be able to play against far off players thanks to included 4-player Wi-Fi support.

    Previous titles: Advance Wars Series, Paper Mario Series, Napoleon, Fire Emblem Series

    Will be known as Planet Puzzle League when it gets a release outside of Japan, looking forward to this as its always a great game whatever the platform or name its under. Graphics look basic and theres no characters but this game has always been about gameplay.


    April 27th
    Tank Beat - US Release
    Tank Beat is a touch based action battle game that drives the player through each battle in a variety of tanks against armored, airborne, and sea opponents. Tank Beat is entirely stylus-based. As you draw tracks and fire on the DS's bottom screen game map, your tank appears and responds on the top screen. Players engage in a variety of missions and commandeer a full range of tanks: from tiny scrappers, to missile carriers, to giant Panzers.

    The game features with three modes: Story, Skirmish, and Battle. In single player Story Mode, players progress through 27 levels of play and unlock various tanks as they achieve objectives. Skirmish Mode allows players to practice on any of the maps and tanks that were unlocked in Story Mode plus additional exclusive levels. Free-for-all Battle Mode pitches up to 4 players against each other in either wireless head to head action or via the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.

    Previous titles: Chaos Field, Radio Allergy

    Sounds pretty good, but looking at the video and screens suggest meh-ness.

    Previous titles: Franklin's Great Adventures, Cocoto Kart Racer, Back to Stone, Legend of the Dragon

    So thats it for the week, I missed out a lot of Japanese releases (21 to be precise!) as most need the language to play them or we already had them in other regions. Same goes for any other games that have already been dumped in English.

    Apart from Snk Vs Capcom and Panel de Pon, theres not that much but I guess most people are busy with there Pokemonz to care [​IMG]

    I think it's very cool you're doing this. I like the idea of having a regular list of 'what's new' in here. Keep up the good work!

    I guess I like it. But I also like being surprised when I notice a game being out all of a sudden. Anyway..in this case, it surprised me that Panel de Pon is nearly out. Can't wait to play that game [​IMG] It has voice support, so you can talk trash while puzzling, how awesome is that? [​IMG]

    I did think of a "Also whats in shops but already dumped" at the bottom, but then I thought a simple link to gamefaqs that shows all of the releases would surffice for those who wanted to know whats out in their region as some people do prefer to play games in their own language.

    My aim for this sort of thread is simply just to give some description of the forthcoming games due this week as sometimes you see a game and you're sometimes like "wtf is this then".

    I think there's a New York Times Crossword game coming out this week too. Could be an amusing distraction.

    after playing the japanese version of SNK Capcom card game - the card collection process is extremely boring and the game is also weakly tuned, giving the player that starts his turn first all the advantage.

    Come on it’s almost the 29th & still no Tank Beat! I bet if this was a
    game based on a movie or gay cartoon it would have been out early.
