Welcome fellow game nerds! As we are heading into the summer months, are you ready for all the new releases?
Some games this month have been delayed by a few days or weeks, but the upcoming Fairy Tail will not be released until July. Finally, arriving later in the month is June’s most anticipated game, The Last of Us Part 2.
Regardless of the platform you use — Play Station 4 (PS4), Xbox One (XBO), Nintendo Switch (NS), Computer (PC), etc. — there is a game for you to enjoy playing.
I am not sure how the pandemic will affect these releases, or if it will, but here is a list of some of the video games getting released this month.
Little Town Hero (PS4)
In the isolated village, none of the villagers are allowed to leave. That doesn’t bother some of them, but one wants to see the world.
