Five great Switch games not to miss this June

Here are five of the most promising Switch games from this month

Mario playing gold

This month is shaping up to be one of the busiest for Nintendo’s hybrid console in a fair while, with a number of major releases set to arrive in the coming weeks. The variety of the Switch’s latest games is, as always, really quite exciting – and we’ve also got a major first-party game in the mix this time around.

The quality remasters just keep on coming, including a port of the remake of a cult classic, as well as remastered versions of two of the finest skateboarding games of all time. If they’re not to your liking, perhaps the prospect of playing through three quality action games from a couple of generations back – all spruced up for modern hardware – is more your speed?

Either way, you’re sure to find something to get excited about in our roundup of the biggest Switch games of the month. So put your Switch on charge, sit back, and get ready to be in the know on all the biggest new releases.

Two warriors in battle

Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection – out now

If you want to test your mettle on three of the trickiest, not to mention most brutal, action games around, then make sure that the Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection doesn’t fly under your radar. You play as master ninja Ryu Hayabusa as he takes down rival warriors and hulking demons from beyond using flashy attack combos and powers.

This handy collection brings together Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge – letting you play the lot while out and about on Nintendo Switch. Do bear in mind, however, that they’re all really darn tricky. You have been warned!

Toad playing golf

Mario Golf: Super Rush – June 25

Mario Golf: Super Rush is set to deliver an arcadey mix of golfing fun, wild powerups, a fast-paced multiplayer mode, and even an extensive campaign to get stuck into.

It looks like one of Mario’s best sporting outings to date, and it’s the first major release from Nintendo itself in a while.

Tony Hawk skateboarding

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 – June 25

This is a remastered collection of two of the best skateboarding games of all time, featuring countless graphical and quality-of-life upgrades. What’s not to love?

A blue-haired character using a thunder rush attack

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny – June 29

Disgaea 6: Defiance of Destiny is the latest entry in the legendary tactical JRPG series. If you’re ok with a massive grind, and like when the numbers just keep getting bigger, then this could well be worth a look.

An alien charging at a man

Destroy All Humans – June 29

Destroy All Humans is now considered something of a cult classic, thanks in no small part to its sense of humour and enjoyably weird premise: you’re an alien dead set on harvesting humans by any means possible. Oh, and did we mention that you get your very own spaceship kitted out with a death ray?
