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.
This week sees the release of a large number of titles in all regions, with several niche standouts. The worldwide release of FIFA World Cup 2006
is bound to be a big seller this week, though the title will face stiff competition in Japan with the nigh-unstoppable Winning Eleven 10
. In the United States, RPG fans have a lot to get excited about with the simultaneous release of Metal Saga
, Lost Magic
, and Atelier Iris 2
. Meanwhile, OutRun 2006: Coast 2 Coast
is intent on proving that an arcade-style racer can still hold its own against today's simulation-oriented racing titles.
