April Assault: It’s Raining Games

It’s pouring!

2017 continues to steamroll with an exciting lineup of amazing games. March was insane, and April continues the trend with highly anticipated titles and even a few possible hidden gems. This entry we are going to point out eight more games to check out in April. Spring is here, and there is still no reason to go outside.

Persona 5

(PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3)
It feels like a long time coming, probably because it has been, but the latest in the fan-favorite Persona series is finally here. This latest game is the first to appear on PS4 and continues the slick visual style and unique themes the series has become known for. It is time to let your Persona shine when this game launches at the beginning of April.
Release Date: April 4th

Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition

(Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC)
More famous for a vulgar phrase than the visceral combat it contained, Bulletstorm is a game unlike anything else. This remastered version includes tons of new content including an appearance by the crude Duke Nukem. Whip enemies into shape when this shooter hits PC and consoles in early April.
Release Date: April 7th

Yooka Laylee

(Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, PC)
Microsoft doesn’t seem to want to get around to giving us a new Banjo Kazooie, so some members of the original team have decided to deliver their own. This Kickstarted platformer is a labor of love, and a total throwback to those collection-heavy games from the N64 days. Prepare to stare into the googly eyes when it hits in early April.
Release Date: April 11th

Voodoo Vince Remastered

(Xbox One, PC)
I am banking on most people never having heard of the original Voodoo Vince, let alone ever playing it. This remaster is a personal favorite of mine, launching at a super cheap price and being one of the most original character platform games I have ever played, I cannot recommend checking it out enough. Torture poor Vince in mid-April.
Release Date: April 18th

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap

(Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Switch, PC)
The theme of April seems to be nostalgia, and Wonderboy is no exception. Bringing back this classic is a passion project and it looks like classic game play goodness. The cartoon art style and traditional game audio really hearken back to the days of classic gaming. Enjoy it in mid-April.
Release Date: April 18th

Dragon Quest Heroes II: Twin Kings and the Prophecy’s End

(PlayStation 4, Switch)
Musou games are a dime a dozen, but the original Dragon Quest Heroes really stood out. Whether it was the gorgeous art direction or the more in-depth game play, it was memorable. The sequel is coming and looks to improve on the original. Be sure to pay attention when it launches in late April.
Release Date: April 25th

Outlast II

(Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC)
It feels like Halloween in April. Outlast II is sure to induce plenty of nightmares when it arrives. This first-person stress test will be a sure fire hit with streamers and gamers alike when it lands in late April.
Release Date: April 25h

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

(Switch)
We end the month with yet another game that has already appeared on another console. Mario Kart 8 returns, but with new upgrades and all the DLC available for the original game. While it might not be new, this title is sure to be a huge hit on Nintendo’s new console when it launches at the end of April.
Release Date: April 28th

The games keep rolling, and we will continue to bring the eight biggest games of the month to our readers. Expect full reviews of these titles as they hit as well.
