Games in April: Sand Land, Stellar Blade, And Tennis

RIP Akira Toriyama. The legendary creator of the Dragon Ball series may be gone, but he has left fans like me with plenty of gaming memories – I remember playing Dragon Ball Final Bout continuously on PS1. This month, we will be able to celebrate his legacy with Sand Land, and soon, Dragon Ball Sparking! Zero, a new take on the Budokai Tenkaichi games.

Besides the upcoming action RPG, there are plenty of other great launches happening this month.

PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 16 April

This game feels like a mix of the popular co-op game “It Takes Two” with the movie “Honey I Shrunk the Kids”. For some mysterious reason, you have shrunk to the size of a bug, and you’ll need to survive in an overgrown backyard. Find supplies, build a shelter, and fight off spiders and bees that could kill you. Jio three other friends, and discover how and why you were shrunk.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 23 April

If you’ve played the original "Suikoden I and II" and you think it is the GOAT, then you've gotta look out for this title. Directed and produced by Yoshitaka Murayama, creator of both of those JRPGs, Eiyuden Chronicle feels like its spiritual successor, and looks and feels like the OG game. And as with Suikoden, you can recruit over 100 characters to join you on your quest. Mix and match different characters to form your unique and strongest party.

SaGa Emerald Beyond
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Nintendo Switch

Release date: 25 April

The SaGa franchise has been revived once more after seven years. This time, you follow the stories of six protagonists travelling through 17 different worlds connected to a realm called Beyond. As you play through each character’s story, you will trigger different story branches. Your decisions decide how the tale truly unfolds.

Sand Land
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X

Release date: 25 April

Based on one of the late, great Akira Toriyama’s works, this game is set in a vast colourful desert world where both humans and demons are searching for water. You play as Prince Beelzebub, who is looking for the Legendary Spring. Battle wildlife and the powerful Royal Army in cool vehicles like bikes and tanks, while developing your base into a thriving city, and bringing back water to the land.

Stellar Blade
PlayStation 5

Release date: 26 April

The most beautiful game coming this month, this PS5 action-adventure exclusive is set on a future Earth overrun by aliens known as the Naytiba. As the beautiful Eve, you’ve been tasked on a mission to reclaim our planet for humanity through fast-paced combat. But as you play through the story, you might learn that not everything is as it seems.

TopSpin 2K25
PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X

Release date: 26 April

We’ve rarely featured tennis video games because there are barely any! This year is different, as TopSpin 2K25 features icons like Roger Federer and Serena Williams, along with current stars like Iga Swiatek and Carlos Alcaraz. In your quest to become the Grand Slam champ, you can also create your own tennis player to compete in the biggest tournaments including Wimbledon and the US Open.
