From Mario Strikers to Diablo Immortal, from The Quarry to Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, the games released in June 2022 on PlayStation, Xbox, PC and Switch.
The next will undoubtedly be a very interesting month for Nintendo Switch owners. Between the games due out in June 2022 in fact, the arcade sports Mario Strikers: Battle League Football and the Musou Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes stand out, but there are also Demon Slayers: Kimetsu no Yaiba, Wreckfest and Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.
As for the other platforms, we will finally see the debut of Diablo Immortal on mobile and PC, we will be able to visit the deadly summer camp of The Quarrythe new horror game from Supermassive, and play the role of Nathan Drake and Chloe Frazer in the splendid Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collectionwhich marks the absolute debut for the Sony series in the Windows environment.
Out on PC on June 2nd
Welcomed in a skeptical way by the community due to the landing on mobile devices, Diablo Immortal will also be available this month in the PC version, thus going to combine the best of both worlds for an action RPG experience that draws heavily hands from the tradition of the franchise Blizzard and boasts characters and classes that fans of the series are familiar with.
The game will give us a substantial campaign to be faced alone or in co-op, but also a huge amount of extra content which will further enrich the package between endgame activities, special challenges with final stages in a battle royale style and exciting raids with increasing difficulty.
All while we move from mission to mission, exploring vast dungeons besieged by enemies, facing hordes of creatures determined to kill us and literally conquering mountains of loot to be used to improve our equipment: we talked about it in the last trial of Diablo Immortal.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles
Out in NSW on June 10th
A few months after the debut on PC, PlayStation and Xbox, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles also arrives on Nintendo Switch, bringing with it the atmospheres of the famous anime, reproduced in an extremely faithful way thanks to the timely work of the experts of CyberConnect2. The adventure of Tanjiro Kamado and his sister Nezuko therefore relives on the Japanese hybrid console, even in an unprecedented portable dimension.
Unlike previous versions, in this case the package will immediately include i downloadable characterswhich will substantially enrich the versus mode roster, while as regards the campaign, the perplexities regarding the duration and depth of the experience expressed in the review of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Hinokami Chronicles will probably remain intact.
Mario Strikers: Battle League Football
Out in NSW on June 10th
Mario Strikers: Battle League Football marks the return of a historical series for the mustachioed plumber, who as we know between a jump and a rescue engages with various sports activities. In this case it is football, but in one version distinctly arcade and spectacular, made up of upgrades and special shots, bonus items to be collected on the fly and a much more multifaceted control system than in the past.
As we wrote in the Mario Strikers: Battle League Football tried, the goal of the Next Level Games developers seems to be to offer us asubstantially deeper experience as usual, giving each character a wide repertoire of maneuvers and encouraging us to make the most of them to score the winning goal or to prevent opponents from doing the same, between traditional and multiplayer modes.

The new horror game from Supermassive Games, The Quarry takes us to a summer camp to experience the (mis) adventures of nine boys who suddenly find themselves dealing with a group of psychopathic killers and a mysterious creature. The story is inspired by the classic Friday 13 but not only that, in a sequence of surprises and twists ready to make us jump from the chair.
The formula is the one that the development team introduced at the time of Until Dawn (review), therefore a sort of interactive film with limited gameplay mechanics but a multifaceted system of choices and consequences that will determine the sequence of events, which characters they will die in excruciating suffering and which ones will manage to survive the nightmare. The tried of The Quarry.
