Atari had a couple of games this year that are scheduled to come out exclusively for Nintendo systems. Godzilla: Unleashed and the classic board game Jenga will both come out for both the Wii and the DS.

Godzilla: Unleashed gives the big green guy a whole new stage to cause massive destruction on. This monster-fighting game feels a lot like War of the Monsters, except that it uses the gesture-based controls of both systems to pull off massive fighting moves and has 23 playable creatures to tear up cities and alien landscapes. Of these 23 monsters, you will get to see many standards like Mecha-Godzilla and Ghidorah as well as a slew of new creatures created by Toho (the originators of Godzilla).

The other title, Jenga, sees who can remove and place pieces from a tower of blocks without making the tower topple. New to the game will be a slew of power-ups and twists that are bound to make this title a bit more interesting. The game will take place in a wide variety of levels that will add cool effects to the game. For instance, when the tower finally falls in the underwater level, instead of crashing down, it sort of slowly drifts to the sea floor. The game also offers a variety of mini-games that act as a good distraction when you've gotten a little tired of the main Jenga game. These games include something akin to Pong where you try to juggle fireballs springing up from a lava pit with a Jenga block.

Jenga is slated to come out this November while Godzilla: Unleashed will hit shelves sometime this Holiday Season.
