Nintendo Life eShop Selects – July 2021 – Feature

July has been a slightly quieter month for big digital releases on the eShop, but no month goes by without at least some worthy tidbits of your time.

These awards aim to celebrate the best of Nintendo’s digital store, giving a little love and attention to games that could so easily be missing from Switch’s ever-growing library.

So let’s get started. Here are the best Switch eShop games of July 2021!

Honorable mentions:

While these titles haven’t quite made our top three this month, they’re still worth checking out:

The Procession to Calvary (Switch eShop)The Procession to Calvary (Switch eShop)

Editor: Digerati / Developer: Joe richardson

Release date: July 1, 2021 (United States) / July 1, 2021 (UK / EU)

In third place this month we have The Procession To Calvary, a very different point-and-click adventure with a fantastic sense of humor.

We could all have a little fun these days, and The Procession To Calvary certainly offers a good laugh or two. The game lets you solve puzzles, help NPCs, and run errands, all in a point-and-click format that encourages you to experiment, but it combines it all with great script to keep you engaged.

It’s not without its flaws, but we invite you to read our full thoughts on this one if you want to give it a try.

Risk system (Switch eShop)Risk system (Switch eShop)

Editor: Hidden trap / Developer: Triton Industries

Release date: July 15, 2021 (United States) / July 15, 2021 (UK / EU)

Moving on to the second we have Risk System, a shmup that feels refreshing and welcoming for less experienced players in a genre that can feel a bit too brutal at times.

We gave this one an 8/10 in our review, praising its well-designed scenes, memorable boss fights, and accessibility. You have three lives to play with, you can restart levels you fail without going back to the start of the game, and you can try boss fights over and over again, making the overall game challenge more of beating each stage on your own. own rhythm, rather than having to memorize each pattern and erase everything at once.

It might not be for all shmup fans and it’s a bit short, but we’ve had a great time with this one over the past couple of weeks.

Blaster Master Zero 3 (Switch eShop)Blaster Master Zero 3 (Switch eShop)

Release date: July 29, 2021 (United States) / July 29, 2021 (UK / EU)

The biggest prize of all, however, goes to the one and only Blaster Master Zero 3.

We couldn’t help but praise this one in our review, describing it as a masterful conclusion to the trilogy. The series’ mix of side-scrolling and top-down action is arguably the most polished yet, delivering a truly satisfying retro-style platforming experience.

This third entry features a well-implemented dark world mechanic to mix things up a bit, great level design, memorable boss encounters and more, helping us easily recommend this – alongside the previous two entries – as a series. which you should definitely consider adding to your game library.

There’s a reason Blaster Master Zero 3 got away with our staff voting this month – be sure to check it out!

How we decide our eShop selects the top three: At the end of each month, the Nintendo Life team votes for their favorite titles from a list of games selected by the editorial team. To be eligible for this list, these games must have been released as a digital-only Nintendo Switch eShop title in that particular month and must have been reviewed on Nintendo Life; we select qualifying games based on their evaluation scores.

Staff are then invited to vote for three games they believe deserve to be at the top of this list; the first choice gets 3 points, the second choice gets 2 points and the third choice gets 1 point. These votes are then counted to create a top three list, with the top winner taking home the top prize of the month.
