Capcom Fighting Collection promo image

Capcom Fighting Collection

Capcom’s presence in 2D arcade fighters expands far beyond the Street Fighter series. For completionists and curious alike, the new Capcom Fighting Collection will illustrate just how wide and weird that range was. Including only one Street Fighter (the 2003 anniversary edition of Street Fighter II), this new bundle focuses more on the oddballs: the entire Darkstalkers series, Pocket Fighter, Puzzle Fighter, Red Earth and Cyberbots. It will be the first time many of these titles see modern fixings, like online fights, ranked battles and rollback netcode. Start dusting off those old combos when Capcom Fighting Collection comes to Xbox, PlayStation, PC and Nintendo Switch on June 24.

Mario Strikers

Mario spends most of his time bopping Goombas, turtles and so forth. When the famed plumber does make time for a sports game, that sports game usually becomes one of the most popular games of that sport: for example, Mario Tennis, Golf, Kart and the rest. Somehow, one of the best Mario sports games kept getting overlooked. Don’t make that mistake again. Mario Strikers returns to the soccer pitch for the first time since 2007 with Battle League. This new match features four-on-four teams, club management mode and online play, all with over-the-top Super Mario super powers you love. Mario Strikers: Battle League kicks off June 10 on the Nintendo Switch.

The Quarry

Supermassive Games crafted a niche for itself in 2015 with the high-budget, blood-pumping horror game Until Dawn. Having covered that cabin in the woods, it only makes sense that Supermassive attacks a summer camp in its biggest game yet, The Quarry. Nine counsellors find themselves fighting for their lives and your quick decisions will dictate who lives, who dies and who discovers the truth. Like Dawn, this nightmare features motion-captured performances from actors who’d believably pop into a slasher flick, like Modern Family’s Ariel Winter, Righteous Gemstones’ Skyler Gisondo, Detective Pikachu’s Justice Smith, David Arquette, Lance Henriksen and, of course, Ted Raimi. The Quarry’s bloodbath begins June 10 on Xbox, Playstation and PC.
