Shadowrun Trilogy (June 21)

Starting things off is the return of the cyberpunk RPG series in Shadowrun Trilogy. The trilogy includes remasters of Shadowrun, Shadowrun Returns and Shadowrun: Dragonfall – Director’s Cut. In addition, players can access the bonus Shadowrun: Hong Kong – Extended Edition. Originally exclusive to PC, these three remastered titles will make their console debut with improved graphics, better performance and controller-optimized gameplay.

The tactical RPG games take place in a dystopian fantasy cyberpunk future, where magic re-awakened. As a result, creatures of high fantasy return. The cult game originated as a tabletop RPG, before finding its way onto PC. Now, developed by Harebrained Schemes and published by Paradox Interactive, you can pick up the remastered collection on June 21 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Naraka: Bladepoint (June 23)

Another PC game making its console debut this week is Naraka: Bladepoint. Developed by 24 Entertainment and published by NetEase Games Montreal, this game offers a multiplayer experience that merges parkour with swordplay. Players take on the roles of Forerunners who use sharp blades and precise agility in combat.

From running along walls to climbing across rocky terrain, players can take full advantage of the in-depth free running mechanics. In addition, the combat system utilizes unique blocking and parrying techniques that differ from those of traditional games. Naraka: Bladepoint dashes and slashes onto Xbox Series X/S on June 23.

SEGA brings the Blue Blur back this Thursday in Sonic Origins! This four-game compilation sees the original Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD fully remastered for modern hardware. Players can also choose to relive Sonic’s glory days as they originated in Classic Mode or enjoy the modern luxuries of full-screen display and infinite lives in Anniversary Mode.

Sonic Origins races over to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One on June 23. In addition, you can also play the game on PC via the Epic Games Store and Steam.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes (June 24)

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a musou-style game set in an alternative timeline of 2019’s Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Developed by Omega Force and published by Nintendo, this game brings back the addictive hack-and-slash gameplay you’ll use to mow through hordes of enemies. However, unlike other musou-style action games, Three Hopes blends strategical elements, such as different classes and a battle map you can use to assign orders to your teammates.

The newest entry in the Fire Emblem series also greatly builds off the extensive worldbuilding from Three Houses that makes you care for each character and the continent of Fódlan altogether. With fast-paced gameplay paired with rich storytelling, musou fans will definitely want to check out Three Hopes. The new game comes to Nintendo Switch on June 24.

Capcom Fighting Collection (June 24)

Fighting game fans won’t want to miss Capcom Fighting Collection! Get ready to throw down in ten classic fighting games from Capcom’s past. Featuring deep cuts from Capcom’s library such as Darkstalkers, Night Warriors and Vampire Savior this compilation doesn’t hold any punches.

In addition, Capcom Fighting Collection will not only mark the first time Red Earth gets a console release, but also the first time it gets an English release too. One of the most unique features of the ’90s Japanese arcade cult-classic is its marriage between typical fighting game features and RPG elements. You can play all these Capcom classics when the game launches on June 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
