In today's installment of the "Release This!" column, Brandon Sheffield reveals the lineup of video games set for release around the world this week in a list compiled exclusively for Gamasutra, and occasionally stops to smell the roses with a handful of highlighted games. In this excerpt, Sheffield discusses one of the more notable North American releases for the week, Capcom's Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition, commenting: "With the relative dearth of games released in the US this week, one of the most interesting titles happens to be a bit of a rehash. 2005's Devil May Cry 3 is the game that got the DMC series back on track, and the special edition, which has been released at budget price, takes the successful game and gives it a bit of a tweak. In this version, you can play as Vergil, brother/nemesis of DMC's traditional antihero Dante (so what does that make Vergil – an anti-antihero?). Also new to this edition: a new boss and an arena-like survival mode. Perhaps just enough to get fans interested in shelling out $20 for a new version, and certainly likely to lure those who never played it to begin with." You can read the full Gamasutra column, including highlights for the European launch of Dead or Alive 4 on the Xbox 360, and Final Fantasy VII's revival with Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII (no registration required, please feel free to link to the article from external websites).
