Game-Time report / It’s April 1st again every year. At a time when the mental state of the Internet is increasingly in danger, “April Fool’s Day” has become the best time for many netizens to go crazy.

Of course, since this day comes with any exaggerated expressions that can be understood as joke buffs, many game companies have also seized this point, put down their posture, and started to work hard. While making players laugh, they also Promote your own products.

This year is no exception. Game-Time has also summarized some good things that domestic and foreign game companies (basically Asian companies, after all, Europe and the United States have not yet reached April 1st) this year before the author finished the article. I invite you to share them.

“Jian Wang 3”: the first game for Xiaomi car owners

In addition to car bloggers, I didn’t expect that game bloggers like Game-Time could also enjoy the popularity of Xiaomi cars.

As the annual “serious revelation” of Jian Wang 3 mixed with true and false, Jian Nian officially announced on April Fool’s Day that the game will also be launched on Xiaomi’s cars after Mac, Apple’s Vision Pro and other platforms.

Considering the relationship between Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun and Kingsoft, it is not impossible that Jian Wang 3 will be launched on Xiaomi cars in cloud gaming mode. After all, Tesla has been working hard to port platforms such as Steam to its own cars, so there should be a certain demand for in-car entertainment scenarios.

“Code Name Kite”: Sorry, we ran away.

On April Fool’s Day, of course some products will choose the most classic running memes.

Not long ago, the otome game “Code Name Kite”, which was frequently searched due to the in-game plot and copywriting, suddenly released a “runaway announcement” in the game, which truly scared many players.

However, although this approach is not new, it is more effective. In other companies, it is a complete April Fool’s Day. When our own players are busy, many topics related to “Code Name Kite” have appeared on Weibo hot searches. .

“Aurora White Night”: Your prince can also be a frog, croak

To introduce, this is the latest light spirit in “Aurora White Night” and the player’s dream frog: His Highness the White Frog Prince.

There’s not much to say, Gua Gua is so handsome.

“Phantom Beast Palu”: ​​I’m sorry, Gua Gua, I’ve moved on.

Also playing the animal card is “Pallu the Phantom”. On April Fool’s Day, the game officially announced a love simulation game based on Pallu, and even announced that the R18 version would be released simultaneously, directly turning the desires of countless players into reality.

The official also said, “Actually, Phantom Beast Parlu was originally developed as a love simulation game, but due to impulse, it became the current game form. By the way, the CEO is currently in love with the naughty cat.”

Brother, you smell so good

“Arknights”: The essence of stock trading is fighting crickets

Stock trading is an art, and you deserve the “Tyla Investment Master Class”. Through the cricket fighting gameplay in the game, let the gold medal lecturer take you to the pinnacle of life.

However, although Game-Time does not know whether Arknights’ “Terra Investment Masterclass” is worth signing up for, the green interface somewhat evokes some bad memories.

If we were wrong, the stock price would have plummeted.

“Goddess of Victory: Nikke”: Not only “Sword Star”, our new 3A is also working on it.

Korean company Shift Up has also joined the array of Japanese companies that lie about new games.

The company’s mobile game “Victory Nikke” recently released the AAA girl shooting masterpiece “Dead Spicy” derived from the game, and released a PV video. Although the entire announcement is well-organized, considering that Shift Up is not a large company with a particularly large number of people, and the company’s PS5 masterpiece “Sword Star” is about to be launched soon, this PV obviously belongs to the array of April Fool’s Day activities.

“Pokemon Sleep”: I can definitely win this game

Are you still worried that KPL and LPL are too demanding to operate? Are you still afraid of being hacked and having your account banned by EA when participating in the Apex League?

Japanese players responded enthusiastically on Twitter, saying, “That’s great. I hope your business can become active outside of Japan.”

Epic: Acquiring Steam, I will meet your needs

As the saying goes, many true thoughts are expressed through jokes.

On April Fool’s Day this year, the Epic Game Mall directly turned its attention to its biggest competitor, Steam, announcing that it would acquire the platform and make all R18 games on it free.

It is worth mentioning that not long ago, Epic officials were still talking about the popularization of Bilibili. Why can’t Epic sell small butter?
