While no major new AAA titles are launching next week, we’ll see a nice smattering of ports and smaller games landing on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. So if you’re looking for a new game play, you’ll probably find something to fit the bill. Let’s take a look at what games are releasing the week of April 15, 2019.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster on April 16

Platforms: PS4, Xbox One, PC

  • See PS4 version at Amazon – $39.96
  • See Xbox One version at Amazon – $39.88
  • See PC version at Epic Games Store – $34.99

First it was a globe-spanning novel. Then it was a movie that bore little resemblance to the book. Now it’s a game that’s not much like either previous incarnation. World War Z is a four-player third-person shooter that drops you in an apocalypse plagued by hordes of fast-moving zombies.

Wasteland 2 on April 16

Platform: Switch

  • See it on Amazon – $29.99

Believe it or not, Wasteland 2 is a direct sequel to the 1988 PC game Wasteland. It was Kickstarted on PC in 2014 and has since trickled onto consoles, with Switch being the latest. Basically, it’s an isometric RPG that’s set in an apocalyptic world. You create four heroes to venture out and kick some enemy butt in turn-based tactical combat.

Anno 1800 on April 16

Platform: PC

  • See it on Amazon – $59.99

Anno 1800 is a city-building real-time strategy game that takes place during — no surprise if you caught the title — the Industrial Revolution. The strategery begins on Tuesday.

Cuphead on April 18

Platform: Switch

  • See it on Nintendo eShop – $19.99

The devilishly difficult cartoon platformer makes its way to Nintendo Switch. Pretty cool if you’re up to the challenge.
