Shop Watch June 2023

A Diablo Armament of titles in June.

My first memory of hearing about the Diablo series involves an acquaintance just burning through mouse after mouse as they clicked attack in the first game. Now, 26 years later; Diablo IV is hitting every system it can so players can presumably mash their controllers just as fervently. That’s a thing we do now in RPGs, right? Mash controllers?

Mercenaries Blaze: Dawn of the Twin Dragons has a physical PS4 release on June 16th. This title is a strategy RPG in the vein of Tactics Ogre.

June 20th’s Miasma Chronicles bills itself as a stealth/tactical hybrid. Upgrade skills as the protagonist navigates a post-apocalyptic wasteland for this PS5/Xbox X title.

June 22nd sees the release of two sequels: Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story 2 and Final Fantasy XVI. One of these is June’s other biggest title* with Diablo IV. Both titles are for the PS5.

A physical edition of Front Mission 1st hits the Switch the following week on the 27th. The game was previously made available for download on the Switch, with a digital PS4/5 edition coming soon.

A copy of FFXVI is on its way to me, but early July the next Trails game is released; closing out the previous 9 games in the series with the conclusion of the Crossbell arc. I’m currently at the end of Trails from Azure, so I’m really looking forward to finishing up the story. It’s a rarity for me to make a Final Fantasy title wait, but them’s the breaks.

* if you think it’s Valthirian Arc; you’re adorable.
