The Gaming Month Ahead – April 2015


maxresdefault

Spring is here, and so too are a few game. There’s a fair few digital releases this month, but very few big name retail releases. Mortal Kombat x probably stands out as this months biggest title. Mortal Kombat X delivers a decent amount of returning characters, some new characters (including new guests like the Predator, in DLC form) and lots and lots of blood. Fatality time!

So…yeah. Lovely. Dark Souls 2 and Scholar of the First Sin DLC comes out on 8th gen consoles, looking a little closer to the reveal footage when the game was initially announced. PC will also be getting the new version, this will come as DLC or a stand alone complete version. The DLC will also come to 7th gen consoles, but without all the lovely new graphical upgrades.

The much loved JPRG Xenoblade Chronicles comes to 3DS. It’s basically a port of the Wii title that came out some years ago. 3DS owners should keep in mind that it only works on the New 3DS and not any of the older models. It also looks worse than the Wii version and is really only a must if you don’t have a Wii or a PC able to emulate the Wii – and really, really like JPRG’s.

It’s a fairly quiet April. Which isn’t a huge problem as Pillars of Eternity only just came out anyway, and Witcher 3 is right around the corner…
