June is a pretty slow month for game releases, but there are still a few big titles to watch.
Here are five games releasing in June we think you should check out. Keep in mind that we’re officially in gaming news season, when we’ll learn juicy details about upcoming games as part of the showcases this month. You can read all about it here.
Mario Strikers: Battle League
Another sports game from the Mario franchise, Mario Strikers: Battle League is the third football-based sports game in the Mario Strikers series (after the original game on Gamecube and Mario Strikers: Charged on Wii).
It’s a sports/party game featuring a range of Mario characters, centered around soccer, sorry, soccer. Up to eight players can compete in a match, using special powers and moves. It’s not too competitive a game, but you can compete against other players online.
Whereas Diablo Immortal was first criticized as an “off-season April Fool’s joke” when it was first announced at BlizzCon 2018, the game is finally here. It’s also on PC, which is a welcome development.
Diablo Immortal is a lite version of Blizzard’s Diablo series, designed for phones but also available on PC. It’s free-to-play, with dungeon-crawler action in a gothic fantasy setting, with a class-based hero system (allowing you to play as nimble rangers, powerful mages, or brutal melee heroes).
- Diablo Immortal releasing on the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Battle.Net today, June 2.
From the choice-based game studio Supermassive Games (the creators of Until dawn and the Dark pictures series), The career is a horror game where you can choose how the story unfolds.
It’s kind of like watching a 90s horror movie, except you get to choose which heroes might go when they run or which items they pick up. This is definitely one for slasher lovers.
That’s right, another Sonic game. Sound origins is a collection of Sonic games released on SEGA Genesis and Mega Drive, including Sonic The Hedgehog 1, 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CDremastered for modern systems with new visuals.
If you want to experience the original Sonic games in remastered glory, this is one of the best ways to do it (otherwise, Sonic Mania also worth a look). The gameplay is the same, with additional unlockables, modes and animations.
- Sound origins will be released on June 23 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, Nintendo Switch and Epic Games Store.
The only indie game on our list, Silt is an atmospheric horror game where you dive into the deep ocean, unravel mysteries and solve puzzles. It’s a side-scroller in the vein of Limbonot requiring much thought from the player, but enough to keep them engaged and on the edge of their seat.
If you are looking for a scary horror game, check out Silt.
- Silt out June 1 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, and The Epic Games Store.
Check back next month for our picks of July’s new releases.
