New video games this week:

“The Crew.” – This much-anticipated and delayed game is about infiltrating a gang via underground street racing. It takes place in multiple U.S. cities as players build a crew to perform missions and keep track of it all via apps and the web. Rated T for Teen. $60-$85 for Standard and Gold Editions on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.

“Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker.” — If you liked the 3-D mazes in “Super Mario 3D World,” you may enjoy this spinoff featuring explorer Captain Toad. Will this be just another goofy Nintendo offshoot, or a great game in its own right? Rated E for Everyone, for Nintendo Wii U.

Also out this week: “Tales from the Borderlands” (downloadable for PC), “Chivalry: Medieval Warfare” (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360), “NES Remix Pack” (Wii U), “Ultimate NES Remix” (Nintendo 3DS), “Terraria” (Xbox One), “Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX” (PS3), “Guncraft” (Xbox 360), “Lumino City” (PC), “Myths of Orion” (PC), “Club Manager 2015” (PC), “Christmas Wonderful 4” (3DS), “Ultraworld” (PC), “Primal Carnage: Extinction” (PC), “Fractured Space” (PC).
