This Week’s New Releases 4/12 – 4/18; Mortal Kombat X, Grand Theft Auto V (PC)

Just Push Start - Sun, 04/12/2015 - 15:04

gtav finger waving
The week of April 12th through the 18th sees a smaller selection of new releases, including the return of one of the kings of fighting games. Mortal Kombat X will be making its return back into the spotlight with only the current gen (PC, PS4 and Xbox One) releases, as the last gen releases of the same title will be hitting store shelves later this summer. Titan Souls will finally be arriving on Tuesday, bringing with it a difficult series of boss battles and only one arrow to fend them off with. Otherwise, beyond a couple of 3DS titles including a Natsume-developed train simulator, nothing else is arriving on consoles this month. Grand Theft Auto V finally debuts on PC’s, bringing with it a seven DVD install that’s indicative of the amount of content Rockstar has shoved into this release.

A-Train: City Simulator (3DS)
Grand Theft Auto V (PC)
Mortal Kombat X (PC/PS4/XB1)
Titan Souls (PC/PS4/Vita)
