This Week in Games: Apr 26 – May 1

New Pokemon, Exploring Alien Worlds, side scrolling arcade shooters and hunt down & scar your friends for life are just some of the fun enjoyment you have ahead of you for your gaming week this week. But before we get to the full list, here are your highlights:

Take on the role of a Pokemon photographer in the New Pokemon Snap on the Nintendo Switch on Friday. This on rails shooter style gameplay has you use a camera instead of a gun as you move your controller or system to look around the car and take pictures of Pokemon along the way.

Also this Friday is the next PlayStation 5 exclusive with the 3rd person shooter of Returnal. A mixture of mystery and alien worlds as you play as an explorer who is either exploring an alien planet or having a psychotic break that does make us think just a little bit of Control (without the cool super powers). But this first PS5 exclusive shooter will be worth a look if only for seeing what a ‘made for’ platform game can really do.

And on Saturday is some mindless side scrolling shooting with R-Type Final 2 finding it’s way to Xbox, the Switch and Steam. An update to the R-Type arcade that gives you a lot more options to customise and upgrade your ship is the type of drop in game that we love for the Switch but if you aren’t sold you can download and check out the demo first.

Honourable Mention: And our honourable mention this week goes to a title finally making it’s way from an Xbox exclusive to the PlayStation. Secret Neighbor is that similar formula of Hello Neighbor but working as a team with friends to raid the basement with one friend assuming the role of the Neighbor. It will be ready to play on PlayStation this Thursday.

If you bought any of these on the release day, tell us how it went! Also, as always did we miss anything? Something you are looking forward to more than anything else? Tell us in the comments
