Upcoming Switch Games June 2020

June already! While I’m writing this, the birds outside are sharing their morning song and the sun is already out. Maybe June is a month to be outside more often, but there’s always games to retreat to in the evenings!  Let’s look at what games we can expect on the Nintendo Switch.

Mind you, not all games to be released are on here. Alternatively you will see games that the big gaming sites don’t mention. These are the games that we are taking notice of, and if given half a chance, you can expect reviews for many of them! It should be noted that unless I have some personal experience with the game mentioned, there’s a link to the descriptions on the Nintendo website.
