New Video Games Due This Week

Here he comes! With Speed Racer dashing into theaters on Friday (May 9), two new game editions arrive in stores for the Nintendo DS and Wii. The Wii edition features a "choose-your-own-adventure" aspect that plays out as a series of choices that the player must make during the game. The DS version is a more standard movie-based game in which players take on the role of the characters from the movie and get to hop in each character’s signature vehicle. Look for both Wii and DS games in stores tomorrow. Both versions of the game are rated E.

Here are some other notable games expected in stores this week:
