It's a happy day in the Eurogamer office when the frontpage strapline for New PAL Releases Roundup is spoiled for choice, and today is one such day.

We've singled out Aliens vs. Predator, The Misadventures of P. B. Winterbottom and Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth for frontpage attention, but we might also have mentioned Resident Evil 5's excellent Lost in Nightmares expansion, PomPom's Alien Zombie Death or the unexpected and exciting prospect of Flight Control on DSiWare.

Winterbottom came out on Xbox Live Arcade on Wednesday and charmed us with its pastry-obsessed use of time-manipulation, while Lost in Nightmares is in some ways the game we hoped Resi 5 would be.

White Knight has been out in Japan for ages, so catch up on the changes in our recent International Edition hands-on and look out for a refreshed review next week. (Update: As a number of you spotted, White Knight is out on 26th February. Apologies for the error.)

Miles Edgeworth successfully extends the Ace Attorney series in typically bonkers fashion.

Then there's Flight Control, one of our favourite iPhone games ever, which emerges on DSiWare. Developer Firemint has made a name for itself with technically savvy, fearsomely playable handheld games recently, and while we haven't tried the DSi one yet it's tempting - although the iPhone version's £0.59 baseline is considerably less than the DSi's 500 Points asking price.

Alien Zombie Death, finally, is PomPom's first PSP mini. Check out video on Eurogamer TV and do read our interview with the affable Michael Michael about life as a shooty-loving indie.
