This is the last episode of New Releases before E3 2018, and with it comes a look at some of the biggest games June has to offer. For fighting fanatics, there's BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, and for dinosaur lovers, there's Jurassic World Evolution. Nintendo fans also have a good month to look forward to with the plate-flinging Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido and the racket-swinging Mario Tennis Aces. They'll also finally get their hands on the Nintendo Switch port of Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus.
BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle -- June 5 (US) / June 22 (EU)
Available on: PS4, PC, Switch
The world of BlazBlue is wild enough, but this crossover fighting game is also bringing in characters from Persona 4 Arena, Under Night In Birth, and RWBY. With over 40 characters on the roster, there are so many possibilities for putting together the ultimate duo.

Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido -- June 8
Available on: Switch, 3DS
Sushi Striker is about battling too: you have to take down your opponents by flinging plates of sushi at them. To do that, you must match plates of the same color to build a strong stack, but you can also mix things up with Sushi Sprites, each of which can totally turn the tables on your opponent. You can take on others in online and local multiplayer duels too.

Jurassic World Evolution -- June 12
Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC
If you've ever wanted to run your own Jurassic Park, now's your chance. Between 40 different dinosaur species, three branches of development, and a bunch of facilities to build, there are a ton of methods to help life find a way. And did I mention that Jeff Goldblum himself (as Dr. Ian Malcolm) will help guide your way?

Mario Tennis Aces -- June 22
Available on: Switch
There's a lot to look forward to in the latest Mario sports game It's changing things up with a suite of new special shots, and it's the first proper story mode in the tennis series in a long time. As you'd expect, you can also take the competition online--and of course swing your racket using the Joy-Cons.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus -- June 29
Available on: Switch
The Nintendo Switch is also getting a hyper-violent port this month. It's the same Nazi-killing campaign that other systems got last year, but this version lets you fine-tune your shots with the Pro Controller gyro, or fully aim your guns with the Joy-Cons. Being able to take the war anywhere your Switch can go ain't too bad either.
