New Pokemon Snap

Monster Hunter Stories 2
Another game in the franchise Monster Hunter, but this time in a completely different register. Monster Hunter Stories 2 has a release date scheduled for July 9 and is revealed little by little through the presentation videos published by Capcom. Sequel of the first Monster Hunter Stories, this is an adventure game with more affordable graphics for younger people than Monster Hunter Rise, but with a story mature enough to appeal to the general public. This opus is punctuated by the discovery of a particular Rathalos, who could well be the creature at the center of an obscure legend. This game will be perfect for your epic summer adventures.
The Legend of Zelda : Skyward Sword HD
Another game that has not yet been released, The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword HD is expected on July 16. Remaster of the eponymous title released in 2011, it comes to celebrate the 35 years of the franchise. This is a faithful reissue while providing the title with better visual quality.
