*UPDATE* It seems someone was playing a cruel April Fool's joke on me (or was I the one playing it?). Sadly Super Mario Galaxy 2: Yoshi's Universe is only a figment of someone's imagination (or was it my imagination?). Though I really do hope we get a Galaxy sequel on the Wii; Galaxy was just too great to have to wait for another console.
Another huge release this April is the DSi's North American launch on the 5th. (It launches in Europe as well, only a couple of days earlier.) My game spending money has been spent in the last few months, but once I get some more I'll be sure to purchase both a DSi and a copy of Rhythm Heaven. I managed to play the demo of Rhythm Heaven on the Nintendo Channel and I found it was excellent. On the Wii side of things Excitebots looks great as well, and I'm going to look into that game as well.
While April doesn't have a large number of games like both February and March, it stands a pretty good fight with quality over quantity. What about you?
