After what seems like forever, now we can finally buy a PlayStation 5 off the shelf — no more rushing to pre-order hoping you get a chance to buy the latest Sony console. And it couldn't have come at a better time because June is packed with top tier video game releases.

We can't remember the last time we've seen so many big titles hitting the shelves in a single month. Brace yourselves and your wallets, gamers.

We Love Katamari REROLL+ Royal Reverie

PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: June 1

The month kicks off with one of the most bizarre yet outrageously entertaining video game series of all time. In Katamari, the rules of logic are delightfully thrown out the window.

Roll a ball and gather objects. Starting with humble erasers and paperclips, your ball gradually grows larger and larger, allowing you to pick up increasingly colossal items. You'll soon be rolling up cars, boats, and even entire houses in your unstoppable quest.

Street Fighter 6

PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox Series S|X

Release date: June 2

Get ready to master the quarter circle + punch as the iconic Street Fighter franchise returns with its latest instalment. Packed with a fresh roster of new characters ready to make their mark alongside beloved legends like Ryu, Ken, Guile, and Chun-Li, plus an all-new story-based adventure mode.

And what's a fighting game without some fierce competition? Challenge your friends to epic fight nights, or try some of the fun mini-games to pass the time. Hadouken!

Diablo 4

PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X

Release date: June 6

The other hot game coming in June is the fourth edition of the horror/adventure RPG, as players once again go on a journey to the depths of hell. Kill demons, pick up loot, then battle against big bosses to see how long you can survive.

Developers Blizzard say you will spend about 80 hours dungeon crawling and levelling up. Not sure how long our mouse will survive as we mash the left click button trying to fend off horde after horde of dark forces.

Harmony: The Fall of Reverie

PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: June 8 (PC and Switch) | June 22 (Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5)

For something a little more peaceful, Harmony is a narrative based game from Don't Nod, the same team behind Life is Strange.

You play as Polly, a woman who finds out she is able to contact a world called Reverie that can determine human aspirations such as glory, chaos, power, and truth. She will use this power to fight against the evil mega-corporation MK, that is influencing human emotions to control an entire town.

Park Beyond

PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X

Release date: June 16

For fans of theme park creators like Rollercoaster Tycoon, you must bookmark this upcoming title.

You'll be the boss of your own theme park once again, but in Park Beyond you're able to "impossify" your rides or stalls, transforming them into comically bigger and wild imaginative versions — like adding a kraken monster to your swinging rides.

You're not limited by space either, so go wild and see if you can make a massive theme park bigger than Universal Studios Singapore.

Crash Team Rumble

PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X

Release date: June 20

We're big fans of the Crash series, especially Crash Team Racing, so it's exciting to see another spin-off on the franchise.

This is a 4v4 competitive game where players need to collect the most Wumpa Fruit as possible, while fighting off your opponents so they aren't able to snatch as many fruits as you do.

Gather three gaming kakis and see if you can climb the global leaderboard.

Final Fantasy XVI

PlayStation 5

Release date: June 22

Final Fantasy makes its triumphant return to consoles with an exclusive release to PS5. The main character this time is Clive Rosfield, a human who finds himself mixed up in a war fuelled by magic crystals and human warriors known as Dominants who can embody towering Eikon gods.

Instead of the turn-based battles from the past, the emphasis in FF16 is real-time combat and modern game mechanics. A must-play for any RPG fan.

Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life

PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: June 27

Harvest Moon fans, rejoice! We're getting a remake of the classic Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life that was last seen on the PS2. Dust off your green thumbs and get ready to cultivate your dream farm all over again!

As with past titles, you'll be raising cows and chickens, caring for crops, and forging friendships with your quirky neighbours — perhaps even discovering a little romance along the way.

AEW Fight Forever

PC, PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, S|X, Nintendo Switch

Release date: June 29

Wrestling fans have been waiting ages for this game to be released. AEW Fight Forever is made by the same developers who created the classic WWE Smackdown series.

With its arcade-inspired gameplay, AEW Fight Forever will have you leaping off the top ropes and unleashing electrifying finishing moves. Step into the squared circle and embody wrestling superstars like the legendary Chris Jericho, Kenny Omega, or John Moxley.
