July was a slightly quieter month for major digital e-commerce releases, but not a month goes by without at least a few treats worthy of your time.
These awards celebrate the best of Nintendo’s digital store by showing love and attention to games that could so easily be overlooked in the Switch’s ever-growing library.
So let’s get started. Here are the best Switch eShop games of July 2021!
While these games didn’t make our top three this month, they are still worth a try:
Publisher: Digerati / Developer: Joe Richardson
In third place this month is the Procession to Calvary, very various a point-and-click adventure with a fantastic sense of humor.
We could all have a little fun these days, and Procession to Calvary certainly offers a couple of good jokes. In the game, you solve puzzles, help NPCs, and run errands – all in a point-and-click format that encourages you to experiment, but it is combined with a great script to keep you interested.
It has its drawbacks, but we strongly recommend that you read our thoughts on this if you want to give it a try.
Publisher: Hidden trap / Developer: Newt industries
Jumping into the background, we have Risk System, a game that is refreshingly welcoming for less experienced players in a genre that can feel too brutal at times.
In our review, we gave it an 8 out of 10, praising well-designed milestones, memorable boss battles, and accessibility. You are given three lives to play, you can restart the 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 objective of the game more about completing each stage at your own pace than necessary. memorize each pattern to clear everything in one sitting.
It may not be for all shmup fans and is a bit short, but we’ve had a great time with it over the last couple of weeks.

However, the biggest prize goes to the inimitable Blaster Master Zero 3.
We couldn’t stop praising this in our review, describing it as a masterful conclusion to the trilogy. The combination of side scrolling and top-down action in this series is perhaps the most polished, providing a truly satisfying retro-style platformer experience.
This third post includes well-implemented dark world mechanics for mixing things up a bit, great level design, unforgettable boss encounters, and more, making it easy for us to recommend this – along with the two previous articles – as a streak that you should definitely consider your gameplay. library.
There’s a reason Blaster Master Zero 3 escaped due to our staff’s vote this month – be sure to check it out!
As we make a decision, our online store chooses the three best: As we get closer to the end of each month, Nintendo Life employees vote for their favorite games from the Editors’ Choice list. To be included in this list, these games must be released as the Nintendo Switch eShop digital store in a specific month and must be viewed on Nintendo Life; we select suitable games based on their ratings in the reviews.
Employees are then asked to vote on three games that they believe deserve a spot at the very top of the list; the first choice gets 3 points, the second choice gets 2 points, and the third choice gets 1 point. Those votes are then tallied to form a list of the top three, with the winner receiving that month’s grand prize.
