New Release Rundown ~ Week of 3/21

Do you guys know what week this is? It’s the week of PAX East! The staff at DualShockers will be out there tearing up Boston this weekend, but, for those of you not able to attend, we’re pretty sure you’re going to be getting your hands on something new this week, right? What could possibly top the last two weeks of releases, you ask? Not much, really. However, there are some solid titles hitting store shelves this week that are definitely worthy of your attention.

First off, we continue this month’s RPG extravaganza with the release of Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey for the DS, which is likely to be just as addicting as other entries in the franchise. Let’s not forget about Just Cause 2, either. Many of you no doubt played the demo and thought it was the best thing since the original Game Boy, so you’ll be happy to know you can get your hands on the full title this week. Hit the jump for the best (or worst?) of the rest.
