Games to Watch Out for This July

Happy July, everyone!

We’re officially half-way through the year. And in the midst of summer. Not that you’d guess it by looking out of the window here in the UK. We gaze upon grey, rainy skies as we write this. Still, we can’t have everything.

We can’t have everything when it comes to video games this month, either. As often is the case at this time of year, July’s very quiet for new releases. We only have six games on our radar so far. We hope a few more indie games will pop up through the month for us to share with you. Otherwise, it’s going to be a pretty quiet one.

Still, check out the games below and add them to your radar too, if they pique your interest.

Yurukill: The Calumniation Games

Yurukill: The Calumniation Games

  • 5th July
  • PS4, PS5, Switch, PC

Accused of a horrific crime that you didn’t commit, Yurukill: The Calumniation Games finds you fighting for your freedom. If that doesn’t sell it to you, how about the fact it it mixes visual novel elements with shoot ’em up gameplay. There’s a demo available now if you want to give it a try, and your progress carries through to the full game.

Matchpoint: Tennis Championships

Matchpoint - Tennis Championships

  • 7th July
  • PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC

It’s been a while since we’ve had a new tennis game, and so we’re excited to get our hands on Matchpoint: Tennis Championships. Gone are the heydays of the tennis game, with the likes of Virtua Tennis and Top Spin long behind us. While recent offerings haven’t been great, Matchpoint is from a different developer, and published by Kalypso. We’ll keep our expectations in check, but we’re still eager to see what this one is like.

MADiSON

Madison

  • 8th July
  • PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC

It’s been a good time to be a horror fan recently, what with The Quarry, Oxide Room 104 and Fobia all out within the last month. Here’s another one to look forward to. MADiSON is a first-person psychological horror that centres around an instant camera mechanic, promising plenty of puzzles to solve – and, of course, plenty of scares. We’re looking forward to this one.

Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series

Klonoa Fantasy Reverie

  • 8th July
  • PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, PC

If you’re a fan of classic platform adventure games, this is one for you. Klonoa Phantasy Reverie Series bundles up two classic Klonoa games: Klonoa: Door to Phantomile and Klonoa 2: Lunatea’s Veil. They’ve of course been remastered with updated visuals, and new difficulty options have been added to make them more accessible.

Stray

Stray

  • 19th July
  • PS4, PS5

If you’re a cat lover and own a PlayStation console, you’re probably going to want to pick up Stray when it launches later this July. In Stray, you actually are a cat. It’s set in a neon-futuristic world largely inhabited by robots. Just one glance at any trailer or screenshot will get you instantly intrigued. We can’t wait to learn more about Stray‘s fascinating world – although we’re more excited about getting to control a cat, let’s be honest.

Immortality

Immortality

  • 26th July
  • Xbox Series X/S, PC

From Sam Barlow, creator of Her Story and Telling Lies, comes Immortality. Try to discover what happened to Marissa Marcel, a film star who appeared in three films that were all mysteriously never released. And now she’s simply disappeared. With a premise like that, it’s safe to say we’re looking forward to Immortality.
