Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis (GBA/NDS/PS2/Wii)

SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis brings the top kids gaming property, with more than 20 million units of SpongeBob video games shipped worldwide to-date, to a whole new adventure full of rare treasures and magical worlds.

SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis follows the storyline of SpongeBob’s first-ever television movie of the same name that will air on Nickelodeon on Monday, November 12 from 8-9 p.m., ET/PT and is scheduled to release on DVD November 13. Players will join SpongeBob and Patrick in their second journey beyond Bikini Bottom to the legendary city of Atlantis where they will take part in the adventure by riding on a magical bus with the Bikini Bottom crew in the search of the city’s treasures.

With the goal of fulfilling SpongeBob’s dream to uncover the “World’s Oldest Living Bubble,” players will control whether Atlantis brings him everything he desires, or if Plankton’s evil plan will burst his bubble. SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis includes action-packed levels and unlockable objectives including the abilities to invade Atlantis in the mighty Atlantean tank, create fine art with Squidward and sing to power the magic bus to Atlantis. The game also includes unlockable bonus features such as “Director’s Commentary” on the game delivered by SpongeBob himself.

SpongeBob’s Atlantis SquarePantis, rated E for Everyone, is available for the suggested retail prices of $49.99 (Wii), $29.99 (PS2, NDS) and $19.99 (GBA).

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (Xbox 360)

Ace Combat 6 re-ignites the flight-action genre with a hangar full of photorealistic licensed aircraft, all-new gameplay mechanics that deliver an adrenaline-soaked combat experience and four captivating online multiplayer modes.

Thrusting players into massive living battlefields, Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation gives players all-new freedom and flexibility in completing each of the game’s 15 single-player missions.
