Every game out this June – Pocket monsters, fungal apocalypses and the rebirth of strategy

2 min read

It’s an odd time of the year that we’re currently heading into. June is usually the sizzle reel of gaming, an extravaganza of what’s to come and populated by a starter meal of indies before moving on to the main course of AA games from European studios and digging deep into at least one hotly-anticipated blockbuster dish.

That’s the menu for the middle point of the year, but it feels weird to have dinner without a show this year. With the absence of E3, the month ahead feels strangely empty even though it really isn’t. There’s the biggest name on the block, The Last of Us Part II and the likes of Valorant, Ninjala and the first expansion for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

And yet you cannot deny this year’s void that E3’s absence has created. Strange times, right? While I get all philosophical about video games, here’s a look at what you can expect to get your hands on in June.
