I know a lot of people hate it, but April Fools is one of my favourite days of the year. A time when nobody on the internet takes themselves too seriously.
At Press Start, we always like to take part in the fun, preciously with our Crash Bandicoot gag (which we totally believe inspired a Crash come back) and then last year with Pokemon GO snap.
Here’s some of our favourites from 2018, which is seeing more April Fools’ gags than ever.
OUR VERY OWN FORTNITE; MUSHROOM KINGDOM BATTLE ROYALE
We couldn’t make a list without including our very own. Honestly, the whole team is obsessed with Fortnite at the moment and the one thing we want is Fortnite on Switch, so we thought why not bring it over with a few twists.
Another one of my favourites, and quite frankly I’m surprised this doesn’t exist. PlayStation Asia have mocked up a PlayStation board game complete with little figures and cards.
ROCKET LEAGUE BIG TOPPER MODE
This is another great one. Rocket League is crazy at the best of times but these ginormous toppers are set to make it even crazier. It’s unclear if these will stick around or not so definitely jump on.
POKEMON GO GOES RETRO
This is one of those ones that are made for April Fools, but Niantic has actually incorporated it into the game. Once again it’s unclear if it’s today only, but it definitely looks good.
