Coming to Stores: April 3rd Edition

Probably for fear of thinking their games are April Fools Jokes, we really kick April off with  a bang. Each system gets a game except the Vita, which has been on a roll of not getting content. Thankfully, Microsoft held back and delivers a much-anticipated title with Kinect Star Wars. ~ Don

Please note dates are subject to change, and these do not account for digital releases, which can sometimes be as important as retail releases. Don’s personal picks are highlighted in red.

Console

CAPTION CONTEST! Leave your witty caption in the comments below!

Wii only:

  • Tuesday, April 3 ~ Titanic Mystery
  • Friday, April 6 ~ Xenoblade Chronicles

Playstation 3 only:

  • Tuesday, April 3 ~ Pro Angler Moves

X360 only:

  • Tuesday, April 3 ~ Kinect Star Wars

Each home console gets a single title. One looks great, one looks passable and one looks.. well, not so great. In no particular order, we’ll start with Titanic Mystery. A “Where’s Waldo?” game, built with a story around a bomb on the Titanic II and you have to find it. Also on the Wii (exclusively through GameStop or the Nintendo Store) is Xenoblade Chronicles, an RPG with emphasis on exploring sprawling environments. PS3 owners get to go fishing with the Move controller in Pro Angler Moves. Fishing season is upon us, but if you just don’t feel like getting out you can reel in the big ones from you living room boat (ie. couch). Last, and certainly not least is the X360 exclusive, Kinect Star Wars. Force-push and light saber-battle your way through your living room with the Kinect…and hope you don’t look like “Star Wars Kid“.

Handheld

Nintendo DS:

  • Tuesday, April 3 ~ Titanic Mystery

The DS (yes DS.. not 3DS) gets the same mystery “I Spy”-style game that the Wii gets, Titanic Mystery. So if you prefer to solve your mysteries on the go, you have your choice.

Are you purchasing any of these this week? Let us know in the comments below! Also, don’t forget, we are starting a caption contest with the release list. Leave your witty comment for the picture marked “CAPTION CONTEST” below. If this takes off, I will see about offering prizes. Everyone likes prizes, right? Have fun!!
