Summer is here! June is going to be slightly quieter for new game releases but quality is always better than quantity, am I right? This month we’ll see five new games and two re-releases for next generation consoles! Let’s take a closer look.
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst
Faith is back! Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst is a reboot of 2008’s Mirror’s Edge. You play as Faith, a courier who gets around the city by way of parkour, delivering messages to help take down the city’s totalitarian rulers. She didn’t use them much last time but this time Faith will be unable to use guns at all, instead you’ll have to focus on parkour maneuvers and takedowns. Don’t worry though, when you’re running you gain focus, and if you achieve enough focus you will be able to see and dodge bullets!
Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst will be released on June 7th and is available for pre-order for Windows, PlayStation 4, or XBOX One on LondonDrugs.com
Minecraft: Favourites Pack

Minecraft: Favourites Pack is out June 21st for XBOX One and includes Battle & Beasts, Battle & Beasts 2, Natural Textures, City Textures, Fantasy Textures, Festive, and Halo skin packs. Order your copy here
Mighty No. 9
Do you love MegaMan? Then pay close attention friends, because Mighty No. 9 is finally here.
