April is the slowest overall month for gaming in awhile when it comes to new releases, but while this week features the least amount so far this month, it also hosts the biggest game of April easily.

Mortal Kombat X is one of the biggest and most anticipated releases of 2015 so far, which is set to arrive on Tuesday for current-gen consoles and PC.
