Zero Time Dilemma

As the latest title in Chime and Aksys’ Zero Escape series, Zero Time Dilemma combines a deep story with puzzling gameplay. Players follow the lives of nine characters, who have been locked up in an underground nuclear bomb shelter and are forced to play “the Decision Game.” We’re looking forward to exploring all of the routes this game has to offer, as well as the sharp writing the series is known for.

Zero Time Dilemma will come out for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita on June 28, 2016.

Kirby: Planet Robobot

Nintendo’s saccharine puffball Kirby is back for some more platforming action in the upcoming title Kirby: Planet Robobot. When the Access Ark mechainizes Kirby’s world of Pop Star, it is up to our hero to make things right again. We are looking forward to the plane-switching mechanic, as well as piloting the large robotic creatures Kirby can pilot.

Kirby: Planet Robobot will come out for the Nintendo 3DS on June 10, 2016.

Developed by tri-Ace and Square-Enix, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness is the latest title in the action-RPG franchise. Set in the world of Faykreed, players take control of seven characters in battle with an emphasis on crafting and world exploration. We’re looking forward to diving into its rich story, as well as uncovering the games’ many endings.

Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-

Let’s rock.

Aksys and Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear is back for another round with Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator-. As an expanded release to 2014’s Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign-, Revelator adds new characters to the roster while adjusting the balance for the current roster. We’re looking forward to the return of series favorites Jam Kuradoberi and Dizzy, while trying our hand with new characters like Jack-O’ and Kum Haehyun.

Guilty Gear Xrd -Revelator- will come out for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 on June 7, 2016.

Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst

EA and Dice’s Mirror’s Edge Catalyst serves as a reboot to the 2008 parkour classic. Players take control of Faith Connors as she fights through the futuristic city of Glass. We’re looking forward to experiencing the fluid gameplay that builds upon the original, as well as the new combat mechanics that have been overhauled for this title.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst will come out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 7, 2016.

What we at Gamers Heroes are looking forward to the most:

All of the games this month are pretty solid, but we are looking forward to Mirror’s Edge: Catalyst the most. Beating our best times in the original was downright addicting, and Catalyst looks to provide more of the same challenge.
