This week's games look good--literally. For fans of Japanese animation, Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy is headed to Switch, while Gal Gun 2 is headed to Nintendo's latest console as well as PS4. South Park: The Fractured But Whole is also making its way to Switch, while The Swords of Ditto brings another adorable adventure to PS4 and PC. And for platforming and speedrunning fans, there's the equally pretty Light Fall.
Gal Gun 2 -- April 24
Available on: PS4, Switch
Let's get the awkward schoolgirl game out of the way first. Gal Gun 2 is actually the fourth game in the series, but your goal is still the same: shoot demon-possessed girls with your pheromone gun to exorcise them. Play the Switch version, and you'll get to aim that gun using special Joy-Con motion controls.
The Swords of Ditto -- April 24
Available on: PS4, PC
Now on to something much more kid-friendly, The Swords of Ditto is about child heroes rising up to battle the evil Mormo. If one falls, a new hero will rise 100 years later to try again, each time in a new randomly generated world with dungeons and side quests. You can take on the adventure solo or with a friend in co-op.

South Park: The Fractured But Whole -- April 24
Available on: Switch
On the not-so-kid-friendly side, the latest South Park adventure is coming to Switch this month. This sequel sees the residents of South Park dressing up as superheroes, and as the new kid in town, you can pick your own superpowers and choose a side.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Trilogy -- April 26
Available on: Switch
The Switch is also getting a port of the popular anime fighting game starring everyone's favorite ninja. This trilogy includes Ultimate Ninja Storm 1, 2, and 3, plus a bunch of previously DLC costumes and episodes. Note that not every single piece of DLC is included.
Light Fall -- April 26
Available on: Switch, PC
Light Fall might not be based on an anime, but it still has a slick look. The game itself is all about speed, letting you launch yourself in all directions to complete platforming challenges. There's even a built-in speedrun mode for those of you looking to get competitive.
