Video Games To Look Out For This Spring
Sarah Butkovich | Writer
Spring has finally arrived. You can see it in the blooming trees, the wildlife waking from their deep slumber, longer days with warmer weather, and the release of new video games. This might not be your definition of spring, but it is for devoted gamers. Now that it’s April, it’s the perfect time to keep an eye out for spring game releases.
Speaking of April, several games are scheduled to be released soon on the GamesRadar website, such as “Filthy Animals: Heist Simulator,” which will be available on Steam on April 4. In this game, you and your three other friends transform into mutant animals who can steal and brawl their way to victory. Another game to look forward to is “Minecraft Legends,” which will be released on April 18 for Switch, Xbox, PlayStation 4 and 5, and PC, in which you must defend the overworld from an army of piglins.
Several LCCC gamers shared their thoughts on the spring releases. The majority of them were eager to see what games Nintendo had in store. A special education major expressed excitement for the "Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection," a bundle of action-packed Mega Man games as well as extras such as music and illustrations that will be available for the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam on April 14.
Nicholas Cullen, a chemical technology major, appeared to be looking forward to the "Advance Wars 1+2 Re-Boot Camp," a strategy-based game in which you must defend your land in turn-based combat to win, set to be released on April 21 for the Nintendo Switch.
Other students, however, were preparing for the games that would come out in May and June. These games included "Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom," the follow-up to "Breath of the Wild," which will be playable on the Switch on May 12, and "Aliens: Dark Descent," a single-player horror and strategy game in which you have to survive an alien attack. It will be available on June 20 for Xbox, PC, and PlayStation 4 and 5.
With all of these games on the way and more to come, there is no doubt that this spring will be jam-packed with interesting video games for everyone to play.
