New This Week in Video Games (4/19 – 4/25)

by Dean James

Last week’s batch of new releases looked pretty rough, but still was led by the likes of Mortal Kombat X and even GTA V on PC. However, this week brings a whole new meaning to minimalist when it comes to non-PC releases.

The only games of note this week on consoles are the PlayStation port of Shovel Knight and the release of Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China across current-gen consoles and PC. Chronicles: China was originally part of the Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass before it was canceled, but now it is coming as just a standalone game.

The one piece of DLC worth mentioning this week is the second DLC pack for Mario Kart 8 that brings three new racers and eight new tracks into the mix. PC has a few games as well, including Commander Cool 2 and Will Fight for Food: Super Actual Sellout: Game of the Hour.
