Video game releases for April


Persona 5 (PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4) — Persona 5 shares themes and concepts with the previous games in the Japanese role-playing series, but you do not need to have played them to understand the plot. Polygon’s Phil Kollar, who gave Persona 4: Golden a 10, said this in his pre-review: “… despite going in with sky-high expectations — perhaps higher than any game I’ve reviewed previously — so far I am head over heels with the follow-up that developer Atlus has created.”



Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition (PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One) — The remaster of the 2011 title Bulletstorm is being developed by People Can Fly, which in June of 2015 separated from Epic Games to re-form itself as a fully independent studio. The pre-order version includes the add-on Duke Nukem’s Bulletstorm Tour, and it let’s you play the entire campaign as Duke Nukem, voiced by Jon St. John. Also, you’ll be able to kill some di— uh, dudes in 4K on the PlayStation 4 Pro and PC versions



Yooka-Laylee (Linux, macOS, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One) — “Yooka-Laylee is a love letter to your best N64 memories” Polygon’s Allegra Frank wrote after spending some time with the game at Gamescom 2016. Developer Playtonic comprises several key members from Nintendo 64-era Rare Studios but they assure us that the game will not be a copy of their previous work. The Wii U version was canceled but a Nintendo Switch version is set to take its place at some point in 2017.



Full Throttle Remastered (PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Windows PC) — This trailer gives us a peek at the remastered Full Throttle, which will include “new hand-drawn and 3D high-resolution artwork, with remastered audio and music.” Full Throttle Remastered will let players switch between classic and remastered modes, with the ability to mix and match audio, graphics and UI. The developer, Double Fine, will also include a concept art browser and a commentary track featuring the game’s original creators.



Dragon Quest Heroes 2 (PlayStation 4 and Windows PC) — The action RPG will feature both single-player and co-op multiplayer jaunts through the world of Dragon Quest, where heroes will chip away at waves of monsters ad nauseam. The second Dragon Quest Heroeswill include four new playable characters, as well as some that series fans will recognize. The first Dragon Quest Heroes was a surprising success; we had a great time playing itback in 2015. The Dragon Quest series has yet to find the same popularity that it’s enjoyed in Japan over the last 30 years, but side games like Dragon Quest Heroes and 2016’s Dragon Quest Builders have both been critically and commercially well-received out West. No word yet on when the Nintendo Switch port is headed stateside.


Outlast 2 (PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One) — Polygon’s Dave Tach had this to say about the game: “On the surface, Outlast 2 is about finding your wife. It’s almost certainly about uncovering the mystery of the misery in the Arizona desert. It’s also about staying alive, because this farm from hell isn’t deserted. But above all other things and like its predecessor, Outlast 2 is about surviving while terrified.”


Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 (PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One) — Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is set in a war-ravaged Republic of Georgia, in which the player is tasked with clearing out enemy camps, mostly using stealth, but also falling back on run-and-gun where necessary. This 10-minute gameplay video shows an early mission, in which central character Jonathan North is trying to rescue some allies, who are digging their own graves in a churchyard, under the watchful eye of armed guards. The mission offers a look at how stealth works in the game, as well as sniping and close combat.


Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Nintendo Switch) — The deluxe version of the previously Wii U exclusive game will include new characters, items, ways to play and a revamped battle mode. Watch and read all about the new features, including the Joy-Con wheels which will be sold two for $14.99 on the same day the game is released.
