April Fools Day is the most loved (or hated) day of the year, and this year seems to have taken it up a level.
Australia is definitely the most notorious for fooling people, as we get the privilege of going first (cue, it’s not April First yet comments).
Here’s some of the best April Fools jokes of 2019 so far. This will be updated as the day unfolds.
OUR PLAYSTATION AIR GAG
Couldn’t make a list without including our own. We’re massive PlayStation fans and those of you that have been following along over the years know that we’re crazy about Ape Escape and also think that Knack deserves way more credit than it gets, so we made a new streaming service that’s dedicated to recognising PlayStation’s unsung heroes.
RARE REPLAY 64 COMING TO SWITCH
Our friends over at Vooks created something that a lot of people have been craving. RARE Replay 64 coming to Nintendo Switch including Goldeneye 64. It’s definitely something we could see coming down the line.
SEGA released a fake turn-based RPG featuring Kasuga Ichiban. This one is a bit tricky, as a new game featuring this character is actually in development, so it’s possible that we’ll see something like this in the new Yakuza.
CAPCOM’S ONLINE GAME
Capcom released a brand new game called ‘World President Challenges: A Shooting Game’ which you can find right HERE.
MASSIVE PLAYSTATION KEY RINGS
PlayStation Asia revealed that they’d be creating a line of PlayStation key rings. They’re actually just regular consoles with key rings attached.
NVIDIA’S HOLOGRAPHIC ASSISTANT
Nvidia announced R.O.N. which is the first holographic virtual assistant.
WAYFORWARD X NINTENDO
Wayforward announced that they’d be incorporating some of Nintendo’s most iconic characters into their games.
