Games Coming Out In September That You Should Be Excited For

It’s finally happening, 2022 is beginning to ramp up with big, new video game releases. September brings with it the heavy hitters of The Last of Us Part I, Splatoon 3, NBA 2K23 and FIFA 23 but it also marks some exciting left-of-field stuff like the Version 1.0 releases of Ooblets, Temtem and Grounded as well as some food for Square Enix tragics in the forms of The DioField Chronicle and Valkyrie Elysium.

Take our advice and watch how much you commit to this month though – October is going to be a monster.
