Well, folks, we’re full steam into April, which means it’s a whole month full of exciting new releases. Just like March, April isn’t as robust with big-name releases as we’ve seen in the past couple of years, but there’s certainly a few to keep your eye on.
For most PlayStation fans, April begins and ends with three words: God Of War. The latest game in the long-running action series is actually a stunning departure from previous games. Outside of the fact that the setting is now rooted in Norse mythology, it appears to feature a more mature and thoughtful style experience. Yes, the visceral action and gore is still there, but it has the look of The Last of Us more than the first God of War. I’m intrigued.
Switch owners also get to go hands-on with the quirky yet intriguing Nintendo Labo devices this month as well. Starting on April 20, the Robot and Variety Kit release into stores, ensuring that plenty of folks are going to get more out of cardboard than they likely have in a long while.
If those things aren’t up your alley, there are a few other titles taking a look at this month as well. As always, hit the break to see the full list of games coming to you this month.
