April Fools Day is the most loved (or hated) day of the year. This year, I wasn’t expecting to see as many gags but there’s still quite a few. We had something planned (as we love doing something cheeky for April Fools Day, but decided not to run with it with everyone else going on this year).
In saying that, there’s a few clever gaming related ones out there this year and no doubt more will roll in over night.
CODEMASTERS DiRT RALLY 2.0: THE OFFICIAL MARBLE RACING VIDEO GAME
This is weird, and I almost wonder if this was a last minute pivot as Platinum Games didn’t want to announce their game in current times. Platinum Games had revealed that they’d be revealing four games, with the last reveal taking place today. Whilst the first three games were actual games, this last one was an elaborate prank, which seems pretty cruel to fans.
BANDAI NAMCO’S TALES OF THE RAYS
This is a fake fighting game set in the Tales series. Pretty clever nonetheless.
PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS: FANTASY BATTLE ROYALE
This is actually a pretty sick mode that i’d love to see in PlayerUnknown’s Battleground but it’s nothing more than a joke.
THIS WEIRD PS5 MAIN MENU MOCKUP
Look, this PS5 menu mockup is actually pretty cool.
