A few of the greatest stars in the gaming business participate in the merriment on April Fools’ Day, which is a terrific opportunity to enjoy a good grin. We’ve picked together some of the greatest jokes from this year’s witty comedy and gaming-related product advertisements that we hope were a reality.
Sonic Frontiers Collector’s Version
A formal Japanese Twitter handle for Sonic the Hedgehog announced the existence of a limited-edition Sonic Frontiers collector’s version yesterday. You can also get an inflatable ducky to go along with the non-waterproof Gaming Gear and the Sega Genesis. The real-world price of this item would be about $260. Unfortunately, our hopes of enjoying a Sega Genesis in the jacuzzi is doomed.

Goat Simulator Musical Helmed By Steve-O
If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like to play as a goat, the Twitter profile of Goat Simulator has you covered. The movie’s billboard states that public auditioning applications are accepted, however, don’t hold your breath waiting for a response. It’s not about you. Tiktok has a brief video you may see. Coffee Stain Studios PR told media outlets that “as time has shown, with Goat Simulator everything is achievable.” You may count on us to provide if the world so requests.”
Coffee Stain (somewhat) proudly presents…

Genshin Impact Reveals Playable Abyss Lector
A large portion of the Hoyoverse fanbase is eager to embrace the villainous Abyss Lector, and Hoyoverse isn’t hesitant to cash in on the “Day of Lies” hype. A cute chibi version of Abyss Lector was featured in a stop-motion film posted by the formal Genshin Impact social media profile yesterday.

The so-called “Enjou” was first seen by gamers at the Enkanomiya festival, wherein he won over the industry’s affections as a big charmer. Sadly, the inclusion of Lector in the highly-prized title is highly uncertain and might never happen. But keeps your hopes up.

Corsair’s K1 RGB!
Yesterday morning, Corsair “introduced” the CORSAIR K1 RGB. I don’t believe anybody will be prepared to tackle the bloody monsters of the latest FromSoftware’s title with the K1, notwithstanding how cool and compelling it comes out. The button utilized most often in the footage is “F.” That means that even when your mobility is limited, you may still offer your condolences to the deceased.

Twitch Adds Meme-Y
Today we’re excited to launch five new categories you can watch and stream to.
Here’s what’s new… 🧵 1/6
— Twitch (@Twitch) April 1, 2022
In the past, I’ve longed could televise my favorite content producers consume spaghetti or enjoy a book or do housework without having to turn on the microphone. Due to the fact that this was an April Fool’s prank from the popular streaming service, we can safely assume that none of such genres will be implemented anytime soon.
