While there may be a few surprises in store for fans of iPhone and Android gamers when the avalanche of new releases hits tonight, from what we know so far, this week’s biggest hits come in just two flavors: stylish and super.
Whether you prefer to be heroic or just so hip that it hurts, there are a few top notch choices in store:

Marvel Tsum Tsum has hit storefronts in advance of tonight’s new release onslaught, and is available for download on the App Store and Google Play now.
