June 2021 video game release schedule – Hired guns, PS5 exclusives, and anime action

Come June, it’s as if a switch (not that one) is flicked and every game under the sun decides to come out of hibernation. This year’s incarnation of Julian and Gregory’s sixth month is no different, featuring a healthy mix of indie, middle-budget, and AAA games hitting the scene. June kicks off with some classic fisticuffs ala a remake of Virtua Fighter 5 done entirely in Yakuza’s ass-kicking engine, and then moves on to the dark future of Warhammer 40K with Necromunda: Hired Gun.

Not good enough for ya? Well how about a chance to pop heads in a new Sniper Ghost Warrior game or slam into an opponent with MAXIMUM anime energy in Guilty Gear STRIVE? From there, the biggest releases of the month gear up for action (crap should have used that Guilty Gear), as the PS5 adds another exclusive to its ranks with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

There’s also a new Final Fantasy VII Remake add-on to look forward to, plenty of Switch ports, a few retro remakes, and most importantly, Scarlet Nexus. The most shonen anime video game which ever walked the planet, is one of June’s main event heavyweights. Here’s the entire list of games rocking up over the next couple of weeks.
