June 2017 Game Release Schedule

June 2017 Game Release Schedule
 
 

June marks the start of E3, but that doesn’t mean you won’t have any new games to keep you company as you wait for those press conferences to go live.

Fighting game fans rejoice! Tekken 7 is finally releasing. Introducing a new story mode, characters, and mechanical tweaks, Namco’s latest fighter brings a lot to the long-standing franchise. ARMS is also seeing its debut, bringing colourful combat to Nintendo’s hybrid handheld.

If you’re looking for something a little less competitive, Final Fantasy XIV is getting an expansion. Stormblood adds new classes, environments, and dungeons for you and your friends to dive into. If you want to turn back the clock, the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is also coming to PS4.

For a more in-depth look at upcoming games – including some we may have missed – make sure to check our supplemental “Releasing This Week” article every Monday. For an overview of the year, check out the 2017 Game Release Schedule, which we'll periodically be updating.

Note: While this list is intended to be as comprehensive as possible, it is difficult to cover everything, especially with the growing prominence of downloadable and indie games. The dates of some releases can also shift around. If you notice anything that's missing, please let us know in the comments, or by emailing news@nzgamer.com.

This article's titled JUNE 2017 Game Release Schedule, 12 hours from now it will still be MAY. Congrats on your Vanquish woody, but please lets stay on topic aye!!

God Wars Future Past may possibly, but probably not, fix my craving for a Fire Emblem style tactical RPG on Vita. Overall another great month to add to 2017's fantastic release schedule.
