Release Round-Up for the Week of December 6

by John Catuira

Times tickin’ away and I bet you’re wondering what to put under the tree for that special gamer in your life.  Maybe this week’s bevy of videogame releases can offer up a few ideas.

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks takes a radical new step in the franchise.  This time around, the spirit of Zelda will team up with her green-capped boyfriend to save Hyrule.  Zelda’s spirit will be able to control suits of armor so she and Link can fight, explore and solve puzzles side by side.  Together, they will traverse the kingdom in Link’s customizable train.  Adventure awaits on the Nintendo DS.


The Saboteur takes place in Nazi-occupied France during World War II.  As Sean Devlin, you’ll sabotage Nazi operations in an open-world Paris with the help of the French Resistance and British intelligence.  The game will be available on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.


Happy 35th Birthday, Hello Kitty!  What better way to celebrate than to play the free-to-play MMORPG Hello Kitty Online.  Join Hello Kitty and the rest of her Sanrio friends to socialize, play games, and explore a colorful world.  You can start leveling up on the PC this week.
