The PlayStation 5 is a console that has yet to hit its stride. While it currently boasts several excellent titles, the best is yet to come. In June 2023, we look forward to many titles being released during the month. These titles have a significant amount of range between them and offer players much variety. So, to look at what games there are to play this month. Enjoy our list of the Most Anticipated PlayStation 5 Games Coming Out in June 2023.
5. Crash Team Rumble
We begin today by starting off our list of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games releasing in June 2023 with a bang. Crash Team Rumble is a game that is from the beloved Crash Bandicoot franchise. The series has served as a PlayStation staple since its inception, and this game is no different. This is a 4v4 competitive game in which players must collect more Wumpa fruits than the opposing team in order to achieve victory. The game's roster appears to be stacked with many beloved characters from the franchise, which is also great to see.
Set to release on June 20th, this game is sure to make a splash with not only Crash Bandicoot fans but also melee brawler fans. Each of the series's iconic characters makes up the roster, and each has its own unique abilities. This should greatly vary the combat from one character to another. Players seemingly will have to work together in order to come out victorious in this whole new take on the franchise. This is undoubtedly a PlayStation 5 title to keep your eyes on later in June 2023.
4. Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life
Switching things up quite a bit, we have Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life. This game is the highly anticipated and requested reboot of the beloved Story of Seasons franchise. For those unaware, the Story of Seasons franchise was previously titled Harvest Moon in the PlayStation 2 era. And ever since the release of those games, fans of the series have long awaited a modern version of those games. And it seems their requests have been answered with this title.
While the name may have changed, the stellar farming and life sim gameplay remains untouched. This is great to see, as there are a plethora of reasons why this title is so loved by its fanbase. Players will begin their journey within the Forgotten Valley and shape their life as they see fit. This sees them taking care of livestock, as well as gardening, and much more. So if you are someone who enjoys these types of games, definitely be on the lookout. To close, Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life is one of the most promising PlayStation titles releasing in June 2023.
3. Street Fighter VI
For our next entry, we have a game that looks to be visually stunning. Street Fighter 6 has a legacy to uphold. This is certain, and from the looks of things, it appears to be handling that legacy with a sense of know-how and excellent visual and technical fidelity. There have been many improvements, not only to the animations and overall technical abilities within the game but to the game's performance as well. Speaking of technical abilities, players can engage with the game's three game modes when it releases on June 2nd, 2023.
Players can play their typical Street Fighter story within the game's World Tour mode. This has long served as the story mode for the Street Fighter games and makes a wonderous appearance here. Alternatively, players can enjoy the Fighting Ground mode with more arcade game mode offerings. Additionally, there are several control schemes for players to tailor their experience toward the game, making it customizable. In conclusion, Street Fighter 6 appears to be creating somewhat of a resurgence within the franchise and is shaping up to be one of the best PlayStation titles available in June 2023.
2. Diablo IV
Switching things up quite a bit, we have Diablo IV. Following the mixed reception of Diablo III, as well as Diablo Immortal, this title has a lot to live up to. Players who are faithful to the series have been clamoring to join the game's open beta for quite sometime before the game's release. This shows overwhelming support for the game, and from what gameplay can be seen, many improvements to the Diablo formula have been made. This is great to see, as there is a ton of potential within the game to become the paramount ARPG on the market.
Diablo has always been a franchise that thrived on the ARPG loot-heavy formula. In Diablo IV, however, it seems that the game will take a more grounded approach to its progression systems, which will allow the player to immerse themselves in the world bit more. The game also appears to have a shared world, which is excellent for player interactions and overall social gameplay experiences. To close, Diablo IV is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated titles being released for PlayStation 5 in June 2023.
1. Final Fantasy XVI
Wrapping up our list of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 games releasing in June 2023, we have Final Fantasy XVI. This game, from what gameplay has been shown, appears simply breathtaking. The action combat in the game and the animations that go into the game's combat look stunning. So naturally, this has led to much hype surrounding the game's release. Not only that but the quality of life features in the game are also pretty promising. These features include things such as a lore compendium as well as a menu in order to recap story events.
This keeps the player from getting too bogged down in the game's narrative and keeps it within arm's reach. Additionally, it seems that the game will focus heavily on the Eikons, which are absolutely massive creatures within the franchise's lore. This will surely drum up quite a bit of intrigue and give the gameplay fantastic set pieces to work with. So if you, like us, are looking forward to the release of this title on June 22nd, 2023. Make sure you pick up one of the most anticipated PlayStation 5 titles.
