June Birthdays In The Arcade World

With so many notable games, it’s hard to keep track of when each one was released, but here is a list of games that we’ve been able to track down June release dates for. If you know of additional games, leave a comment below and we’ll update this post.

A big Happy Birthday goes out to Space Invaders who turned 38 on June 5th. Originally it was named Space Monsters, but they changed the name of the game and ended up with a smash hit.

In June of 1981, the first kits of Missile Command became available. With a heavy dose of cold war paranoia, it rocketed to success.
