June’s Upcoming Video Game Releases

My top picks of games releasing in June.

This month of releases brings good news to Switch players as we see bigger, more popular games finally making their way to the Switch after months (and years) of being available on other consoles. June also sees the release of a promising new supernatural adventure game from Dontnod Entertainment.    



Platform: Switch

Release: June 1st

Originally released back 2016, Pendulo Studios, the developers of the Runaway (2001) series, are bringing their point and click adventure game, Yesterday Origins to Nintendo Switch. Featuring an original storyline that combines the investigation and thriller genres, the game takes players on an adventure through different time periods made unique by the dark and off-beat humour and distinctive art style that has contributed to Pendulo Studios’ success.



Platform: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC

Release: June 5th

Early 20th century London has been devastated by conflict and the Spanish Flu is quickly spreading throughout the city. While the government attempts to rebuild, groups led by supernatural beings are emerging with growing influence that only further cripple the city. Playing as Dr Johnathan Reid players must navigate their way through the disease-ridden streets of London using their medical expertise to find a cure that will save the inhabitants of the city.  While trying to save an entire city is difficult enough, things are made even more complicated when Dr Reid is turned into a vampire himself. Players must use their newly acquired supernatural abilities to defend themselves against the multitude of deadly foes while facing consequences of the choices they have to make to survive. The developers behind Remember Me (2013) and Life is Strange (2015), Dontnod Entertainment bring their latest game to PlayStation and Xbox early next month with pre-orders receiving the Hunters Heirlooms bonus DLC.



Platform: Switch

Release: June 29th

The Video Game Awards “Best Action Game of 2017” winner, Wolfenstein II is soon to be available on Nintendo Switch. Developed by MachineGames, the latest instalment of the Wolfenstein series takes place five months after the events of Wolfenstein: The New Order (2014). BJ Blazkowicz is now the leader of the resistance and with the help of new alliances, has players fighting their way through iconic locations like a post-nuclear Manhattan, the small town of Roswell, and the streets of New Orleans. Blazkowicz and his group of freedom fighters must continue the resistance’s plan of overthrowing the Nazi occupation and liberating America.



Platform: Xbox One, Switch, PC

Released last year exclusively for PlayStation 4, the frustratingly nostalgic Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy is coming to Xbox One, Switch, and PC. A collection of remasters of the original three Crash Bandicoot games, players can relive childhood memories of spinning and jumping their way through over 100 levels as they attempt to stop Dr Neo Cortex from taking over the world, all in glorious HD. This re-release is available in two different editions. The Golden Totaku is a limited edition of the game that comes with a 10cm tall golden figure of Crash to add to your collection, and the Crash Crate edition arrives with a crate packed with Crash Bandicoot goodies including a messenger bag, a hat, a glass, and a wallet.
