Oddworld: Soulstorm – 6 de abril – PS4, PS5, PC

The new game in the Oddworld series is a sequel to the recent Oddworld New ‘N’ Tasty, but it also functions as a reimagination of the classic PlayStation One games. In this puzzle, users control Abe, a skinny alien being who tries to free his people from slavery. Without great strength or armaments, Abe relies on his leadership skills and telepathic ability, which allows him to control the minds of his enemies. On PlayStation 5 (PS5) the game will be released directly on PlayStation Plus for subscribers. PlayStation 4 (PS4) players, however, will not receive the game for free.

Star Wars: Republic Commando – 6 de abril – PS4 e Nintendo Switch

Originally released in 2005 for the first Xbox and PC, Star Wars: Republic Commando now arrives in a remastered version for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game is first-person shooter and is set in the Clone Wars, after Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones. The player controls one of the clones, who is the leader of an elite squad, with characteristics different from the other copies. The Xbox One did not receive the remaster, but it is worth remembering that the original game still works on the latest consoles, via backward compatibility.

Cozy Grove – 8 de abril – PS4, XB, SW e PC

A curious animal simulator in the style of Animal Crossing, Cozy Grove puts players to decorate an island and chat with inhabitants. There is, however, a big difference between the games: in this new title, all the residents are dead. This, it is worth saying, does not mean it is a horror game, since, in the game, the user just needs to help its inhabitants to solve their problems so that they can find peace. Like Animal Crossing, there is an incentive to play in short daily sessions, but for more passionate players, the game has a clearer campaign, with more than 40 hours.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 – 9 de abril – SW e PC

The fourth chapter of the Nihon Falcom RPG series brings the conclusion of the Trails of Cold Steel saga, with the largest number of characters in events set just weeks after the end of the third game. The battle system is a mix of previous titles with the return of some of the elements most requested by fans, such as the ability to summon a giant robot during battle, for example. The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 4 is now also available on PS4.

Poison Control – April 13 – PS4 and SW

This new action and RPG game from Nippon Ichi takes players into the depths of hell, all contaminated with poison. In the role of a lost soul dominated by a demon called Poisonette, the user must face physical manifestations created by other lost souls, called Delusions, to escape hell. The gameplay has some shooting and puzzle elements to unravel the stories of the tormented characters.
