In a period full of expectations such as June 2021, the month in which E3 returns and we will attend the various summer events of the video game industry, we could think of a few releases on the market, waiting to discover the news of the next period. Instead, the month that has just begun is particularly full of news, but when one of these is called Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, or the new chapter of one of the oldest and most loved PlayStation series by the public, then there is very little to compete, with the game Insomniac for PS5 which in fact easily wins the title most anticipated game on June. In fact, there aren’t many big productions able to overshadow the Sony blockbuster, but it’s nice to note a nice amount and variety of titles coming in the coming weeks, which make this month interesting also in terms of releases, as well as on that. ads.
The variety of gaming experiences made available by the new releases in June 2021 is truly remarkable, ranging in numerous different genres: ranging from experimental initiatives such as Video Game Laboratory for Nintendo Switch to the return of historical series such as Mario Golf: Super Rush, from expansions such as The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood and World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade Classic up to the inevitable remakes of various types such as Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade and Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, up to the absolute novelties such as Operation: Tango, Scarlet Nexus and indeed the blockbuster for PS5, or rather Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. In short, to be the beginning of summer and a moment usually projected towards the future with announcements and presentations, you can’t really complain about what’s ready to come these days.
The most awaited by the editorial staff
The internal vote to the editorial board has returned a net result, even if perhaps we cannot properly speak of a plebiscite given the presence of other games that have attracted considerable attention. The poll is unequivocal, however, with Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart knocking out all the other competitors of different lengths: the new game Insomniac Games certainly emerges as the most awaited, being in fact the biggest project among those coming in the next few days. In itself, it follows the line of traditional gameplay for the series, that is a sort of 3D platform with action elements, but the technical solutions adopted make it particularly attractive thanks to a truly remarkable graphics and to the exploitation of the famous PS5 SSD that guarantees transitions sudden between different settings.
The runner-up, at some distance from the first, is Mario Golf: Super Rush, as was easily predictable. This is a new exclusive game for Nintendo Switch, successor to the historic series of Mariesque-based golf titles, therefore characterized by a particular structure. Although it is basically a golf game, its interpretation is obviously very arcade, starting from the characteristics of the characters to get to the actual gameplay, which takes place between special shots and crazy modes, alternating typical elements. sport to other imaginative things derived directly from Mario’s world. Closes the podium, perhaps in a rather unexpected way, Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance, the new action RPG by Tuque Games referring directly to the most famous franchise of role-playing games, for single player and multiplayer. Outside the podium, only Scarlet Nexus stands out above all others.
The most awaited by readers
Even more evident is the result that emerges from the survey released to readers, which elected Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart as the most anticipated game of June 2021, as was easy to expect. The preference given to the new game Insomniac brings the percentage of choice to an overwhelming superiority compared to all the other games, also because evidently outside of this choice there has been a wide-ranging dispersion of votes on all other titles. Only Scarlet Nexus emerges with some clarity in second position, breaking away from everything else, but finding the third place is already difficult, seeing how the votes are distributed in a rather regular way on the whole list of games, outside the preferences assigned to Ratchet & Clank. Evidently, Bandai Namco’s action RPG still managed to intrigue players, also thanks to the demo recently released on PS5 and Xbox Series X | S.
To tell the truth, the second choice would also be the good old “nobody” in this case, following the “positive” results in second place there is therefore Scarlet Nexus. Below this there is a notable tussle: thirds tied, with the same amount of votes received, we find Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade and Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection, while just below we find Mario Golf: Super Rush. For the rest, a lot of votes were scattered on all the other titles, among which we remember above all Chivalry 2 and Guilty Gear -Strive-, but many have collected crumbs of various consents to demonstrate how the varied offer of the month go to satisfy even decidedly different tastes.
