Gamasutra's round-up of worldwide video game releases, "Release This!", takes a look at every game title we know to be shipping to stores this week, in an exclusively compiled list. New releases are in abundance this week, following a slow start to the month brought upon by Golden Week and E3. The United States and Europe are set to see the multiplatform debut of X-Men: The Official Game and The Da Vinci Code, coinciding with upcoming theatrical releases for both franchises. Meanwhile, Nintendo seeks to win over a new generation of gamers with the classic platforming action found in New Super Mario Bros., and in Japan, the release of IIDX RED will spark delight in a very specific audience of established fanatics. You can read the full Gamasutra column, including a list covering all of the game software we know to be available -- across all platforms and regions -- for the week ending May 20, 2006 (no registration required).
