Following relatively busy March 2021 that had Monster Hunter Rise, the long awaited localisation of GnosiaYakuza 6 hitting more platforms, and more, April 2021 is a bit relaxed in comparison with most releases being ports or enhanced releases of older games. There are quite a few games to look forward to if you missed the original releases like Trails of Cold Steel IV coming to more platforms following its PS4 debut, an enhanced remaster of NieR Replicant, and more Atelier games coming to Nintendo Switch.
