The Cruelest Gaming April Fools Gags Of 2017

April Fools’ Day is always a fun time, especially in gaming. Gaming publishers and media outlets alike always poke fun at various gaming properties for a variety of gags, some unbelievable and some more than believable.

Pokemon Go Snap

What kind of April Fools’ Day list would this be without our own gag? A lot of people found it pretty cool, but we know it’s only a matter of time before we see Pokemon on the Nintendo Switch. Many people have been waiting for a new Pokemon Snap game for many years.


Hotline Miami 3

This one was a dagger straight into the heart. The official Hotline Miami account Tweeted out Hotline Miami 3 and nothing more.

Sonic & All-Stars Racing Nintendo Switch

One of the better Sonic games in recent years, the publishers took to their website to reveal the game and a bunch of new characters such as Opa Opa from Fantasy Zone, Kazuma Kiryu from Yakuza 0, and Hatsune Miku from Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tune.


PlayStation Playr App

PlayStation Asia mocked up the PlayStation Playr App, which is the only app you’ll ever need to find romance on the PlayStation Network. Honesty, doesn’t sound like the worst idea in the world.


AMC’s Grand Theft Auto

IGN created a pretty spectacular video (as they always do) about a brand new Grand Theft Auto TV show created by AMC. Honestly, I’m pretty shocked that something to this extent hasn’t happened yet. Grand Theft Auto is one of the biggest properties in the world, so the fact that we haven’t seen a TV show or movie is pretty incredible.


Rocket League Rankings

The brilliant team at Psyonix introduced a new ranking system including Eggplant, Radish and Potato rankings.


The Legend of Zelda Jelly Beans

Our friends over at Vooks created The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild jelly beans including an incredibly variety of different flavours.


Renegades Ends CSGO Campaign

Respawn Ninja announced that the Renegades AKA one of the most-loved CSGO teams had ended their CSGO campaign and would no longer be competing. Hilariously, this sent a lot of fans into an absolute whirlwind.



Bethesda revealed that the rebooted DOOM would be made available on Floppy Discs. This is a pretty good one, subtle and funny.
