Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order - 19th July

Avengers: Endgame may have come and gone, but Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is something to keep Marvel fans occupied until the next MCU film comes along (although considering the frequency of the films, there's probably a couple scheduled for release before 19th July anyway). The sequel to - you guessed it - Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, this is a Nintendo-published exclusive and we're jazzed to see the action roleplaying series come to Switch courtesy of Team Ninja.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood - 26th July

Seeing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus on Switch was a wonderful surprise, so we're excited to see this spin-off/side-story coming to the console at the end of the month. You take on the role of one of B.J. Blazkowicz's daughters in this new story that sees them heading to Paris, the City of Light, in search of their old man. It's set in the 1980s and is shaping up to be one hell of a ride.

You can choose between the standard or deluxe versions, with the latter including a Buddy Pass and the Cyborg Skin Pack. Tinkety-tonk old fruit, and down with the Nazis.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - 26th July

After the hack and slash antics of musou crossover Fire Emblem Warriors, it's once again time to strap on your SRPG thinking cap and get ready for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Channelling a little bit of Harry Potter and a little bit of Game of Thrones, Three Houses sees you join a school as a teacher to instruct students of one of three noble houses from the kingdom of Fódlan. With the turn-based tactics that the series is famous for, plus a peppering of new systems and surprises, this one is looking to be an essential purchase whether you're a fan of permadeath or not.

Astral Chain - 30th August

The end of August brings us a brand new action game from PlatinumGames in the shape of Astral Chain. As part of a police special task force, it’s up to you to fight against mysterious, alien-like creatures who have invaded the world.

In the Ark, a multi-cultural city in the near future, disaster strikes when gates to another dimension suddenly appear! Dangerous creatures begin to emerge, attacking the people and polluting the land, and normal police forces are unable to compete with them. To stand up against these threats, a brand new, special police unit known as Neuron is formed. You won't want to miss this one.
