A new month has arrived, which means we’ve got a slate of new games coming. While June is often associated with the excitement of E3, that doesn’t mean the game releases will be slowing down. This month features an array of exciting new games, which includes big names like Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker 2, a remaster of PS1 classic Crash Team Racing, and Yakuza series spin-off Judgment.
You can see all of the biggest game releases coming out in June in the table below. For a broader look at what’s ahead this year, be sure to check out our complete list of game release dates in 2019.
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch) — June 21
Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a remaster of the PS1 classic of the same name. It follows in the line of Activision’s most recent Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon remasters with vibrant new visuals and revamped control schemes. While Nitro-Fueled contains all of the original’s tracks, it’ll also include remastered content from later games in the series, such as Crash Nitro Kart and Crash Tag Team Racing.

Judgment (PS4) — June 25
Judgment is the latest from Yakuza developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. It’s a spin-off of the Yakuza series’ universe that puts you in control of private detective Takayuki Yagami, who becomes embroiled in the mystery of a serial murder case. Judgement takes place in familiar locales from the Yakuza series, but its story and gameplay are a bit different. You beat up thugs in typical over-the-top fashion, but you also investigate crime scenes and gather leads in your case in hopes of discovering the truth.
