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:

Attack on Pearl Harbor (PC)

Fans of arcade-styled aircraft combat will be pleased to hear today that cdv Software Entertainment USA's Attack on Pearl Harbor for PC has shipped to U.S. retail outlets. Attack on Pearl Harbor is an arcade-action flight combat game that puts the player in the cockpits of some of the most popular American and Japanese aircraft from WWII.

Attack on Pearl Harbor is an aerial combat game that will allow players to relive the action-filled dogfights of the Pacific Theater of WWII as both Japanese and American pilots. Featuring arcade-styled gameplay, an accessible interface and extensive tutorials, players will be able to quickly jump into the cockpit and take part in exciting aerial battles. Richly detailed graphics, graphic-novel inspired cut-scenes and realistic radio chatter round out the experience. Attack on Pearl Harbor features four solo campaigns, a “quick play” dogfight mode as well as multiplayer action. In addition to the initial Japanese attack on Oahu, the game also offers a host of famed and challenging scenarios such as the Battle of Midway, Iwo Jima, Doolittle Raid and the Liberation of Manila. Each campaign spans several months during 1941-1945, presenting an exciting and varied selection of missions.

Mario Strikers Charged (Wii)

Earthquakes, firestorms and electric shockwaves are just a few of the otherworldly hazards in this ball-chasing battle royal. And with players from coast to coast competing online, this wildly unpredictable pitch is for neither the faint of heart nor the heavy of foot. It's not just soccer, it's soccer -- Mario style.

Mario Strikers Charged introduces nine sensational new stadiums, plus a host of new characters with their own special abilities and power moves. Players create their own teams by mixing and matching captains and sidekicks, then use the Wii Remote(TM) and Nunchuk(TM) to face opponents in single-player or multiplayer modes. Mastering Striker Challenges or the tournament-styled Road to the Striker Cup will unlock new elements and cheats.

The excitement extends beyond your living room as Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection, Nintendo's wireless gaming service, enables players nationwide to meet and compete online. Participants are ranked using a positive structured points-based system, and rankings are reset to zero each week to keep the competition fresh and fierce.

"Mario Strikers Charged incorporates unique Wii controls such as flicking the Wii Remote to tackle the ball from your opponent or using it to block shots on the goal," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "There's no better way to keep a game challenging and fun than to invite more people to join the action. With Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, we're creating a real community where players at any experience level can take part in the fun."

Mario Strikers Charged is rated E 10+ for Everyone 10 and Older. Remember that Wii features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access.
