Gamasutra's regular round-up of worldwide video game releases, "Release This!", takes a look at every game title we know to be shipping to stores this week, in a custom compiled list.

This week brings Resident Evil 6 and NBA 2K13 to retailers in North America, while Europe gets Just Dance 4 and Dragon Ball Z for Kinect.

The following list covers all of the game software we know to be available -- across all platforms and regions -- for the week ending October 6th, 2012.

Capcom's survival horror sequel Resident Evil 6 makes its worldwide debut this week. The game features three distinct gameplay scenarios; one is helmed by Resident Evil 4 protagonist Leon Kennedy, another by longtime Resident Evil stalwart Chris Redfield, and the third by series newcomer Jake Muller.
