Xbox has announced four new Games with Gold for all Xbox Love Gold subscribers to enjoy in the month of June. Those games are Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse, Coffee Talk, Destroy All Humans!, and Sine Mora. The games will be spread throughout the month of June, except for Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse which will be available from the beginning of June till the end. Microsoft announced the games and also released a video preview in case you aren't familiar with them, which you can watch below.
As with every free month release, one game is the "Headliner" of the bunch, this month, that's Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse. The game will be available from June 1st to June 30th and although it’s a game that released years ago, it has still remained a popular one in the Shantae series.
The typical process for Games with Gold titles is to have two of them available from the Xbox One catalog while the other two are from the Xbox 360. However, June changes that, by offering a title available on the original Xbox. That game is Destroy All Humans! which will be available from June 1st to June 15th and playable on both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.Embark on an exciting adventure with your favorite hair-whipping, belly-dancing genie,” the Xbox Wire’s preview of the game read. “After losing her magic abilities, Shantae must team up with her nefarious nemesis, Risky Boots, in order to save Sequin Land. Slay monsters, battle epic bosses, and obtain new weapons in a quest to remove an evil curse from the land and gain back her magical powers in the process!
This game being on the Games with Gold lineup makes sense as there’s a big release in the series happening in July. THQ Nordic is creating a remake of the original game with updated graphics and more. So make sure to give the game a try, as the remade version is dropping this July for fans to enjoy.
