Welcome to my very own column, DualShockers Weekly! I hope you all had a very nice week and are enjoying your time playing your favorite games or reading news about all the amazing upcoming games in 2016. I have to say that March was quite a golden month for gamers. What games did you get this past month? What games releasing in April are you excited about?

During an interview on Dengeki Online, Final Fantasy XV Director Hajime Tabata gave out quite a lot of fresh information about the Platinum Demo regarding the differences between the PS4 and Xbox One versions, as well as the frame rate. He also clarified about a possible PC version and upcoming DLC for the game. If you want to learn more about Final Fantasy XV, make sure to read the article.

While we are still waiting for Dark Soul III to come out in the west (April 12th can’t come soon enough…), the brutal and bloody game managed to grab the second place in the Japanese top 50 chart on PS4. On the contrary, the game failed to even make it into chart on Xbox One. You can read more about it in the article
