Summer is typically a slower time in the video game industry but Nintendo is delivering a handful of new games to look forward to next month. We’ve got exclusives, remakes, expansions and more on the way.

There are so many good games coming to the Nintendo Switch that it’s hard to highlight just a few of them. From the soccer pitch to a galaxy far, far away, here’s what Nintendo Switch owners can look forward to playing in June 2022:

  • Silt – June 1
  • Card Shark – June 2
  • Loopers – June 3
  • Five Memories of My Time with You – June 3
  • Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords – June 8
  • Even If Tempest – June 9
  • Tour de France 22 – June 9
  • Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles – June 10
  • Mario Strikes: Battle League – June 10
  • Metal Max Xeno Reborn – June 10
  • Overlord: Escape from Nazarcik – June 16
  • Omori – June 17
  • Fall Guys – June 21
  • Shadowrun Trilogy – June 21
  • Wreckfest – June 21
  • Sonic Origins – June 21
  • Capcom Fighting Collection – June 24
  • Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes – June 24
  • Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak – June 30

Let’s start with Mario Strikers: Battle League, a soccer-like game starring your favorite Mario characters with intense matches and no rules. While the game is set to arrive on June 10, you can get a feel for the intensity of these matches with the free demo now available on the eShop.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II is a port of BioWare’s award-winning RPG. With a port of its predecessor having released on the Switch last November, you can now play the critically acclaimed sequel on June 8.

Sonic Origins is a collection of 2D Sonic classics originally released on the SEGA Genesis. The game bundles Sonic The Hedgehog 1, 2 Sonic 3 & Knuckles and Sonic CD, all of which have been digitally remastered with remastered visuals, added features, new content and more. With Sonic having become a hit on the big screen, this is a great way to introduce a younger generation to the games that started it all.

Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hope is a hack-and-slash action-RPG from Omega Force. Much like its predecessor, the game features gameplay similar to the Dynasty Warriors, but is set in the world of Fire Emblem: Three Houses and allows you to play as characters from that game.

And last but not least, to close out the month we’ve got Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, a fully-fledged expansion for Capcom’s action-RPG. Having saved Kamura, players will now journey to Eldgado, an outpost near a Kingdom under threat from the elder dragon Malzeno. The expansion provides new combat mechanics, more monsters and new hunting locations.
