Games We’re Excited About: June 2016
June became a lot less of an interesting month with the announcement last week that No Man’s Sky was getting pushed back into August. but there are still a few games we’re excited to see this month. Without further ado:
Mirror’s Edge Catalyst (Xbox One, PS4, PC)–June 7
The long-awaited next installment in the Mirror’s Edge series arrives in June, and it’s a prequel that shows us how Faith became the freedom fighter we saw in the 2008 game.
Kirby: Planet Robobot (3DS)–June 10
Is it just us, or does Kirby get no respect among the most well-known platformer characters of the past several generations? Platforming, puzzles and the ability to copy enemies abilities have always made the Kirby games a blast, and this one looks to be no exception. Plus–it has a mech suit.
Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps (PS4, PC)–June 24
A third-person multiplayer shooter set in classic maps of the long-running horror series? Sounds good to us. We caught a few glimpses on RE: Umbrella Corps at New York Comic Con last year, but the lines to actually play it were insane. let’s hope that bodes well for the game’s release, because multiplayer-only games have to rely entirely on the community of layers that build up around the,m, and we just saw the launch of both Battleborn and Overwatch.
Of course, this list is just our personal picks, so please sound off in the comments and let us know what games you’re excited to see next month!
