New This Week in Video Games (4/24 – 4/30)

by Dean James


May is almost here and with that will come some of the biggest releases yet in 2016, but in the meantime we slow it down a bit with a week that has a lot of different releases, but the scale of them is much smaller.

The biggest new release of the week is the third chapter of the new King’s Quest episodic series that will be coming to most platforms on Tuesday. Joining this will be one of the few physical releases this week with the disc version of Tales From The Borderlands.

Tuesday also brings the combined release of the Sega 3D Classics in one collection for 3DS, with Wednesday having the previously delayed release of Ori and the Blind Forest: Definitive Edition for PC coming out.

The rest of the week is pretty much the same with smaller releases, though the free to play Lost Reavers is one of the most intriguing of them that releases on Thursday, along with Mini-Mario & Friends: amiibo Challenge, which both release on Wii U, with the latter also coming to 3DS.
