*exhales and stretches* Man, the last two months of game releases were pretty wild, right? Some of the biggest titles of 2022, such as Gran Turismo 7, Triangle Strategy, and WWE 2K22, dropped in March. And the month prior in February, gamers got treated to quality experiences like Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, and The King of Fighters XV. Now that we're in the month of April, the rollout of major game releases will slow down a bit. Even still, there's still a good amount of games worth keeping your eye on and playing while those infamous April showers kick in for all those May flowers.

‘LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga’ - April 5 (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC - Steam)

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is going above and beyond to make sure it moves the series forward in a major way for longtime players. This "blocky" adventure in that famed galaxy far, far away features all three movie trilogies, a who's who of playable characters in LEGO form, and modernized melee/ranged combat mechanics that make lightsaber dueling & laser-blasting more fulfilling activities. The young fans that have just gotten their first taste of the Star Wars films/TV shows and the older fanatics that have been with the series for the long haul will get a lot of mileage out of this one.

‘MLB The Show 22’ - April 5 (PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch)

The only Major League Baseball game on the scene today has broken barriers by not only being tied to a single console. MLB The Show 22 is making its way onto PlayStation, Xbox, and Nintendo consoles in order to satiate everyone who's thirsty for some digital baseball goodness. Los Angeles Angels two-way player Shohei Ohtani is playing the part of the cover star this year, so fans of his should be more than pleased with that high honor. As far as updates go, this year's MLB simulator comes with an improved version of Stadium Mode and a host of graphical/audio upgrades for PS5 users.
