Well, here we are with another week of new releases upon us already. This isn't the sort of week with a bunch of big, flashy titles, but there's a ton of variety and quite an increase of new stuff compared to what was showing up in New Zealand earlier this morning. It's the kind of week where that highly-anticipated title you've been dying for (ahem Final Fantasy VI) doesn't come out, but there's plenty of options for unearthing a diamond in the rough. Everything you need is below, and let us know what you end up grabbing in the comments below.

  • Bones00

    So no Final Fantasy VI in NA yet?

    • RampageDeluxe

      I'm seriously mentally preoccupied with this games ios release.

      • curemyeclipse

        Right there along with you.

      • jterrel

        Yup.

      • JammyJams

        Me four.

  • Shifaan

    Yet another week passes and no Death Road to Canada or Wayward Saga.

    • http://bytefair.com/ Paul Graham

      Wayward Saga? SOMEONE CALL KING, WE GOTTA SUE THESE FOOLS

  • Ramaz1234

    Only game that looks good is Trip Trap. But besides that.. Back to Bardbarian

  • Raider_-z

    Sad week for me only thing I'm looking forward to staying up until twelve is the new slayin update

    • cofunguy

      In fear I trust looks very good. Definitely worth a look for people who like great puzzle mysteries.

      • bigjack66

        Yeh if you can get it to work!

      • Raider_-z

        Ehh there's only been two point and click adventures I actually liked and that's lili and dark meadow which is old but still play to this day

  • Papa Deuce

    Oh well.... Nothing for me this week. I wanted In Fear I Trust, but I don't buy games with wonky controls.

    • bigjack66

      It's not wonky controls you need to worry about its wonky games that don't even work!

  • http://www.Indieflashmob.com/ Trent

    So they removed the version of Blokus by Gameloft from the AppStore to give us a new version with no duo mode, Facebook integration, and the ability to buy hints with IAP... Awesome

    • homosaur

      Oh no, THEY

      • http://www.Indieflashmob.com/ Trent

        Oh I'm sorry, I didn't realize my use of "they" in reference to the owner of this specific IP would lay siege to your delicate sensibilities because I didn't specifically state it was Mattel.

        "So MATTEL removed the version..."

  • homosaur

    I grabbed Doodle Kingdom because my wife likes those games. It's pretty interesting so far but it's not going to win any converts.

  • curtisrshideler

    "It's the kind of week where that highly-anticipated title you've been dying for (ahem Final Fantasy VI) comes out, but there's plenty of options for unearthing a diamond in the rough."

    What day is FFVI coming out? I first thought you meant to have a 'NOT' after the sentence's first word... But maybe it IS coming out this week.

    • JammyJams

      The way this was written made me think I would see FFVI among these releases. Seems like a mistake, but hoping it's not :)

    • http://twitter.com/JaredTA Jared Nelson

      Ah crap, yeah I wrote that wrong sorry. Rest assured though that when FF6 comes out we'll be all over it.

  • http://www.nafna.com/ nadav bar kama

    i know a few hipsters that have really hot girl friends! and yes, ELI good comment! no need to pick out certain groups to make fun of them ...

  • NPeart

    That Advance Wars ripoff is the most blatant plagiarism I have seen for a whole week in mobile gaming!

    • SpacePenguinBot

      Seriously. I would like a good advanced wars type game, but this seems like an exact clone right down to level design.

      The most glaring difference?
      "Like us on Facebook to unlock the Jeep!"

      As if charging $3 for someone else's work wasn't enough.

    • http://bytefair.com/ Paul Graham

      I'd assume Intelligent is hard at work on a new Advance Wars since they finished with Fire Emblem and Paper Mario.

      By the way, if you have a 3DS don't dare miss out on the new Fire Emblem, I'm only a casual fan of these games and I am finding it to be spectacular.

      • NPeart

        Yeah, its on top 10 of my shopping list(All must have games and no money makes NPeart a dull boy). I bought 3DS "for my daughter", but I don't quite dare to buy Fire Emblem for her or my selfish plot is revealed.

      • http://bytefair.com/ Paul Graham

        She might enjoy it depending how young she is. It has a casual mode now that removes the permadeath to make it more kid friendly.

  • Fangbone

    This is quite possibly the lamest group of releases on the App Store in a long time. Not a single game looks even remotely worth buying. Back to my ever growing back log I guess.

  • Jacob Gehman

    Dear In Fear I Trust,
    Why you no work with iPod Touches? I want to play you. :-(
