Nintendo April Release Schedule: 'Mortal Kombat 11,' 'Cuphead' and More

April looks to be a big month for Nintendo Switch game releases. Ports of classic titles like Final Fantasy X finally come to the hybrid console, and one of the most anticipated games of 2019, Mortal Kombat 11, is slated to drop this month.

While March was a decent month for Nintendo Switch releases, it gave fans the latest Yoshii title along with Final Fantasy VII, April gives owners even bigger reasons to take a look at the list of games coming out this month.

The Nintendo 3DS doesn't have any confirmed April releases - unless Shovel Knight: King of Cards gets a hard date - but there's plenty of Switch titles from first-party, third-party and indie studios to sate your appetite.

Aside from the release of Final Fantasy and Mortal Kombat 11, Nintendo fans will want to take a look at Cuphead a run and gun-style game with art straight out of a 1950s cartoon. It's co-op action and extreme difficulty made Cuphead one of the most popular titles of 2017.

Other titles like the Phoenix Wright Trilogy as well as Boxboy and Boxgirl will give Nintendo Switch owners plenty of variety in their gaming.
