Are you ready to see what games are on their way this April? You can’t fail to get a major mood boost as spring brings with it some gorgeous blue sky days and sunshine, and the lineup of amazing games to look forward to is sure to boost it further.

And there’s a lot to get excited about this April in particular, like the return of the classic fighting gore-fest that is Mortal Kombat 11, two epic Final Fantasy games in one gloriously remastered package for Switch, brand new survival horror adventure Days Gone, and much, much more.

So without further ado, here are 7 games to look out for this spring…

1. Darksiders Warmastered Edition

Play it on: Switch

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse? Wonder no longer – in Darksiders, which is coming to Switch for the very first time, you play as War, a disgraced Horseman falsely accused of inciting war between Heaven and Hell. Forge alliances with hellish demons and try to avoid the angels sent to destroy you as you begin your search for answers and vengeance.

2. Dangerous Driving

Play it on: PS4, Xbox One

If nobody else was looking, and if you weren’t an extremely sensible driver with a good sense of road safety, this is how driving would be. Weave between the traffic at top speed in this spiritual successor to Burnout and give other, slower cars a gentle (or maybe not so gentle) nudge out of the way – you’ve got places to be. That’s what Dangerous Driving is all about, and it’s a lot of fun breaking the rules of the road. Just don’t try it in real life.

Now coming to Switch for the first time, follow Tidus and then Yuna on two epic adventures as they uncover dark secrets about Sin, the world of Spira, and even about Tidus himself.

Mortal Kombat returns in style with its signature blend of larger-than-life characters, fantastical fighting, and lots and lots of gore. Time-bending goddess Kronika, who is the series’ first female boss character, is out to destroy the thunder god Raiden by any means possible, and she has a whole host of formidable fighters old and new at her side to help her. Take on her minions and dish out those Fatalities – some of them are really inventive.
