So, there’s no reason not to pick the best games you should play this month – here are the best games coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console in June 2022.

Mario Strikers: Battle League

What’s that? The Mario Strikers series is for football as much as Mario Kart is for motorsports, a cartoonishly muddled recreation of sports that eschews realism in favor of over-the-top gameplay.

The game follows the basic format of football, with players moving around the field in an attempt to pass and shoot the ball at the goal to win points, but with a lot of artistic licence.

Aggressive tackles and strikes are allowed for example and items such as banana peels can be placed on the field for players to slip.

Like Mario Kart and previous Strikers games, Battle League will likely become a multiplayer favourite.

What’s that? If games like Fortnite are a little too intense for you, you can always try Fall Guys, a game that takes the Battle Royale game format with a last-player format and gives it a spin on It’s A Knockout.

The game eliminates gun-based violence, and replaces it with slapstick comedy, as you control the tough ‘Fall Guy’ across a series of obstacles – at the same time as 99 other players.

If that sounds messy, it is. But without the stress of more serious BR games, Fall Guys’ hilarious disaster will make you smile instead of throwing a controller across the room – even in the face of failure.

The game also shines in party situations, with multiplayer sessions sure to bond a group of friends even more tightly.

The game was originally a success on the PlayStation 4, but has now been released on other platforms by Epic Games – the studio behind Fortnite.

What’s that? One of the highlights of this writer’s racing game in recent years, if you’ve ever wanted to save an old, worn-out car from a pile of junk and enjoy exciting racing, Wreckfest is for you.

The selling point here is the highly detailed vehicle damage system, which makes metal bend and shatter realistically as debris litters the circuit.

There’s even a wild track that encourages full-contact racing, with figure eights and massive dirt jumps ensuring none of the competing stock cars leave resembling entry form.

Wreckfest debuted on Nintendo Switch this month.

Sonic Origin

Sonic Origins is a collection of four classic Sonic games released to take advantage of the new army of fans introduced to the blue hedgehog by the film Sonic the Hedgehog.

It contains the first four Sonic the Hedgehog games released by Sega: Sonic the Hedgehog (1991), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992), Sonic CD (1993), and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles (1994), all originally released for Sega. Genesis and Sega CDs.

Origins includes not only the original releases of each game, but also remastered versions that bring them up to date with modern expectations, such as widescreen compatibility and the removal of life-like obsolete gameplay features.

Lego fight

Lego Brawls takes a completely different tack – basically a fighter in the style of Nintendo’s love letter to himself, Super Smash Bros., this mobile game first released in 2019 sees you pit classic minifigures from various toys’ pasts against each other.

You can choose a recognizable character from your childhood toy box, or create a new hero of your own, before engaging in four-on-four-player battles for in-game territory.

It’s certainly different, but will it find an audience like the more mundane Lego games?
