The biggest blockbusters of April don't arrive until later in the month, but there's still a wealth of intriguing indies dropping this week. Like Cuphead.
The first that caught my eye was Sigma Theory, a turn-based cold war strategy from the makers of Out There (which dropped on the Switch recently).
Speaking of solid mobile games that got a new lease of life on other platforms, the makers of 80 Days are back with Heaven's Vault. It's an open-world adventure for fans of Indiana Jones, starring an archaeologist scouring an area of space to discover lost secrets, ancient languages, and clues towards a vault.
The steampunk multiplayer shooter Steamcraft drops this week, as does the Switch version of Neo ATLAS 1469, a game about ruling a trading company in the 1400s. There's also a game about snooker, if that takes your fancy. The Switch also gets another Kairosoft game in Cafeteria Nipponica.

- My Time At Portia (PS4, XBO, Switch)
- World War Z (PC, PS4, XBO)

Onto the trailers! Heaven's Vault looks interesting as all hell, so we'll start there with a 15 minute walkthrough from two of the developers.
God's Trigger looks like one for fans of Hotline Miami or Hong Kong Massacre from earlier this year. Cuphead is obviously a fit for the Switch, but Katana Zero looks like a great action adventure as well.
See anything you like this week?
