April 11th



PS4, Xbox One, PC

Explore huge, beautiful worlds, meet (and beat) an unforgettable cast of characters and horde a vault-load of shiny collectibles as buddy-duo Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the big nose) embark on an epic adventure to thwart corporate creep Capital B and his devious scheme to absorb all the world’s books… and convert them into pure profit!

April 12th

A Rose in the Twilight


PC, Vita

A girl awakens in a castle void of color and time, affixed with the Curse of Thorns upon her back. After meeting a sleeping giant, the two work together to escape. Help them unravel the mystery of the thorns and the history behind the somber castle.

The Sexy Brutale


PS4, Xbox One, PC

The Sexy Brutale is a Murder-Mystery Adventure developed by Cavalier Game Studios and Tequila Works. Inside The Sexy Brutale casino mansion is a never-ending masked ball featuring intrigue, murder and the (quite possibly) occult. Players must slowly discover the truth behind the secrets of The Sexy Brutale and its inhabitants, who are reliving the same day over and over again - trapped in a nightmare loop from which they cannot escape!

StarBlood Arena



Test your mettle in a lawless competition where only the most skilled pilots earn their shot at intergalactic glory. This is arena-based combat with full 360-degree movement, where the stakes are glory, credits… and your life – while the StarBlood Network broadcasts your every move in front of an action-craving universe.

Might grab Yooka-Laylee on Switch but will wait for the price first. MA still has it as a bit of a placeholder $99 with no release date.

Also perhaps worth noting is Has Been Heroes launching on the 11th. Strategy based rogue-like battler, totally addictive but severely punishing. Took me 12 hours just to beat the first run (mini-boss, then full boss).

Will get Yooka Laylee once price drops. Heard there is a patch for the camera and a few other things that the reviewers didnt have.
