Unveiling the Future: A Sneak Peek at NINTENDO’s June 2024 Game Lineup

June 2024 is set to be one of the most exciting months in the gaming calendar. Full of video game announcements, Nintendo is ready to be front and centre of gamers around the world. From long-awaited sequels to new expansions on beloved classics, we’ve got all the juicy details for Nintendo fans.

The June Chronicles: NINTENDO's Stellar Lineup

Nintendo Switch Welcomes Star Wars Hunters

Release Date: June 4

Star Wars Hunters is kind of the thing to play right now, a multiplayer-focused game that brings the excitement of current gameplay mechanics with the galaxy far, far away. Available on iOS, Android and the Nintendo Switch, Star Wars Hunters is a squad-based PvP hero shooter that takes place on the planet Vespaara in a new solar system. Nintendo Switch, as players know, is home to a niche, select group of games that are mostly action-packed. Star Wars Hunters, with drop-in, drop-out gameplay, is all about intense sessions filled with four different game modes to choose from.

Monster Hunter Stories: A Remastered Adventure

Release Date: June 14

If you’re on the lookout for the Monster Hunter games to come to Nintendo consoles, you’ll have to settle for the overhauled version of Monster Hunter Stories – still a monster-collecting RPG, but one that elevates the genre, and could convert many Pokémon fans into Capcom fandom while offering a prettier version of the game and full voice acting. In fact, it’s the only way to play the story on console, and perhaps one of the few new games you’ll want to play on the Switch after you’ve gotten over playing Mario.

Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance Strikes

Release Date: June 14

This is similar to the approach developer Atlus took with Persona 5 Royal, which launched recently for the Nintendo Switch as well as the PlayStation 4. Shin Megami Tensei V: Vengeance, an enhanced (or ‘definitive’) edition of the Switch-exclusive demon-collecting RPG, adds a new route to the story campaign, new characters, and new demons, making it a must-play for those who want to spend even more time with that particular universe.

Nintendo Dives into Horror with Still Wakes the Deep

Release Date: June 18

And although the still-waking deep isn’t a Nintendo exclusive, the upcoming horror experience Still Wakes the Deep looks destined to lay an exclusive claim on next month’s gaming sidebar. Developed by the British independent studio, The Chinese Room (whose previous work has focused heavily on storytelling), the game promises an atmosphere of suspense backed up by narrative-focused design – and at least one would-be adventurer eager to surrender their sanity for story.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree Expands the Mythos

Release Date: June 21

Fans of FromSoftware’s Elden Ring (2022) will rejoice at the release of the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, which adds fresh territory, encounters and lore on top of the acclaimed Souls-style adventure. Adding the touchstone of open-world exploration fans have come to expect, this ‘expansion’ is essential for any gaming collection.

Exploring Reality in Until Then

Release Date: June 25

Nintendo’s storytelling chops are also on full display in Until Then, a narrative adventure that explores the woes of life in high school – in this case in the Phillipines. The game is both mundane and mystical in the best way, a different type of game from everything else you’ll play this year.

Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD: Ghostly Charm Reloaded

Release Date: June 27

The Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD remaster brings Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon to the Nintendo Switch. The port feels like it captures the original game’s essence and transports it to a modern console, allowing for new players to discover the world of the game alongside its longtime fans.

June Blooms with More NINTENDO Gems

The month also promises some stellar titles heading to Nintendo consoles, including Tchia and Spy x Anya: Operation Memories, which add their own distinctive entries to Nintendo’s broad catalogue.

Understanding NINTENDO’s Magic

In many ways, Nintendo has always been an outlier in the gaming world, celebrated by many for its commitment to innovation, narrative and gameplay. Nintendo tells stories with its games and creates experiences for players that must feel consistent with the hardware and software they’re playing on, no matter if it was developed in house or by one of its partners. When you name Nintendo as a publisher, you can be sure that the game will be supported by a long tail of innovation from both its software and hardware efforts – June 2024 represents both the legacy of that company and its place in gaming’s future.

To conclude, Nintendo’s slate of games for June 2024 is truly multitudinous, original and laden with the unmistakable promise of fun that we all know Nintendo delivers. All inside this elegant wrapping. You’ll be overwhelmed by choice. You’ll feel more powerful. You’ll squash any feeling of insignificance. Monsters, warriors and mysterious creatures from distant lands await inside this bewitching new Nintendo experience. Pleasant dreams.
