New game releases of December 30-January 5

What's coming next week? Ah. Well. Dr. Luigi, definitely. Beyond that, though, it's all a bit of a mystery. No one seems certain, and schedules are clogged up with games listed broadly for "2013." Given that Tuesday, the typical retail release day, is New Year's Eve, everyone's probably waiting for things to settle down. Oh, what trouble the holidays bring!

There may be more coming, of course, but marketing departments shut down for the holidays so it'll all be a pleasant surprise.
