New game releases of April 1-7

After all the fun of GDC, next week is a bit light on new releases. We'll see the launch of jumping hit 'em up BattleBlock Theater, build 'em up Cities in Motion 2, TV show 'em up Defiance, and video game history 'em up Evoland. What fascinates me most, however, is Lords of Football, which appears to be a remarkable combination of Football Manager and The Sims.

Here's our list of next week's new releases:
