Mud, sweat and tears

This week would have been all about vastly improved RPG sequel Two Worlds 2, but as reported by Eurogamer it has been delayed not once but twice over the last few days. It’s now pencilled in for a 25th February release, due to a large amount of stock being wrecked on route from China to the UK.

The rest of this week’s releases are a real bunch of odds and sods. Mario vs Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem on DS was released in the US in November and now it’s finally out over here. It’s worth the wait though, it would seem.

There’s also the PSP-exclusive Lord of Arcana from Square-Enix, which has had some mixed reviews. The same goes for Deep Silver’s Nail’d – a game about fine carpentry. I’m joking – it’s an mud-filled ATV racing game.

Brunswick Pro Bowling – which Sony infamously used to demonstrate the PlayStation Move – strikes its way onto PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 via 505 Games. 505 Games are also releasing Zumba Fitness on PlayStation 3 and Wii this week. It might do all right in the charts – those of a female gender are always talking about zumba on Facebook.

Dance Juniors is another Wii game out this week. It’s from Ubisoft, but I can’t see it being as popular as Just Dance. That said, nobody anticipated that Just Dance would end up selling millions of copies.

Next week: Test Drive Unlimited 2, Dr Kawashima’s Body and Brain Exercises, Trinity: Souls of Zill O’ll, Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Cosmic Destruction, Hello Kitty Seasons and Magic Encyclopedia 2 on DS.
