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. Square-Enix has a license to print money this week with the release of Kingdom Hearts II, the sequel to the 2002 Squre-Enix/Walt Disney RPG, in the United States. Konami's Beatmania, an American arcade staple since 1998, surprisingly makes its American console debut this week; hot on the heels of Guitar Hero, we suppose. Also notable: three new titles for the Xbox 360, including a special edition of Crytek's Far Cry franchise, Far Cry: Instincts: Evolution. Over in Europe, Nintendo's Animal Crossing: Wild World for the DS comes out of hibernation. The nearly four month delay may seem excessive for hungry fans, until one considers that there was a two year gap between the United States and European versions of the original Gamecube iteration of the series. The formerly rare and eternally awesome lawyer adventure Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney also sees release in Europe this week, along with the PS2 version of the ever-popular Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter. You can read the full Gamasutra column, featuring a list covering all of the game software we know to be available -- across all platforms and regions -- for the week ending April 1, 2006 (no registration required, please feel free to link to this column from external websites).
