Two highly anticipated DS titles (by me at least) have shipped off to US retailers today courtesy of THQ, including Lock’s Quest and Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise. Lock’s Quest is a unique hybrid of action, adventure, strategy and building simulation, and comes from 5TH Cell, the talented and creative development team behind last year’s DS hit Drawn to Life. Pocket Paradise, on the other hand, is the latest installment in the popular Viva Pinata garden simulation series originating on the Xbox 360 and the first to appear on a handheld gaming platform.

Lock’s Quest and Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise have both been rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB and retail for $30 each.
