Now Playing: New Releases - Top Games Out This Month -- April 2018

April is home to some very heavy hitters, and I don't just mean the literal batting cages found in Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. This month also marks the return of Kratos in God of War and a new cardboard experiment with Nintendo Labo. The Switch is also getting two big ports: the superhero antics of South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and the anime fighter Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy.

Speaking of taking care of kids, Kratos has a son named Atreus. He'll accompany the demigod as he battles the Norse pantheon in a new, much more open adventure. There are bigger areas to explore and optional bosses to take down as Kratos finds more outlets for this untamable rage.

Nintendo Labo is a unique concept: build peripherals called Toy-Cons from cardboard, then use them to play minigames. There are cardboard blueprints included, but the real hook is building any contraption you want, then programming it to work with the Joy-Cons using the Toy-Con Garage mode.
