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 Epic Mickey 2, PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, and Hitman: Absolution to retailers in the United States, along with a collection of launch titles for Nintendo's Wii U console.

The following list covers all of the game software we know to be available -- across all platforms and regions -- for the week ending November 24th, 2012.

Games Released in the United States:

Nintendo's Wii U console debuts in North America this week, bringing with it a selection of 30 launch titles. Nintendo itself will publish the theme park-styled minigame compilation Nintendo Land, the tablet-enhanced platformer New Super Mario Bros. U, and karaoke game SiNG Party.

The Wii U's launch lineup also covers a broad spectrum of recently released multiplatform titles (Assassin's Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II), original third-party releases (ZombiU, Rabbids Land), and downloadable eShop games (Chasing Aurora, Mighty Switch Force! Hyper Drive Edition).

It's a big week for multiplatform releases as well, as retailers will soon stock Io Interactive's Hitman: Absolution, Disney's co-op platformer Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two, Heavy Iron Studios' Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse, and Sega's kart racer Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

Platform-exclusive standouts include Sony's Super Smash Bros.-like multiplayer fighting game PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Nintendo's Pushmo sequel Crashmo, and an upgraded PS Vita version of Atlus's acclaimed RPG Persona 4.
