Happy Valentine’s Day, Ranters. Along with holiday wishes and the debut of Game Rant’s slick new redesign, we’ve got yet another slate of new release information to share with you.

No fighting about it, this week belongs to Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds. Not that there isn’t some strong competition in the form of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation and even Hard Corps: Uprising, because there is. But when you glance at the shelves of your local game retailer this week, odds are that Marvel vs Capcom 3 will be the game staring back at you.

Of course, there are plenty of other choices out there for gamers of all stripes. Take a look at the new releases for February 13 through 19, broken out by platform and date.

Years in the making, boasting a stunning and varied cast of super heroes and game characters, Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds storms retailers this week. The casual-friendly but hardcore capable fighter intends to broaden the inroads made by Super Street Fighter 4, restoring fighting games to their rightful place in the libraries of gamers everywhere. An amazing array of alternate costumes and a stellar final boss are the icing on the proverbial cake. Stay tuned to Game Rant for the final word on whether this one connects, or swings and misses. Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3 February 15, 2011.

Kicking off Microsoft’s Xbox Live Arcade House Party for 2011 is Hard Corps: Uprising. It may not be as highly anticipated as Beyond Good and Evil HD or Torchlight, and it may not offer the massively multiplayer online experience of Full House Poker, but for fans of Contra-esque action, Hard Corps: Uprising looks set to deliver. It’ll be available on XBLA February 16, 2011.

With all the talk about the Nintendo 3DS, current DS owner may be feeling a bit left out. Fear not, because this week brings the release of Dragon Quest VI: Realms of Revelation. A remake of the never-released-in-the-West Super Nintendo classic, Dragon Quest VI should keep DS role players busy for a long time to come. Look for it today.

As always, we want to hear from you. What games will you be picking up this week? What games on the horizon are you most looking forward to? And who will make up your primary MvC3 team?
