August was a pretty splitting month for eShop delights, with a lot of titles definitely deserving of your time.
These awards aim to celebrate the very best of Nintendos digital store, giving some love and attention to the games that could so quickly be missed in the Switchs ever-growing library.
So, lets start. Here are the very best Switch eShop video games of August 2021!
While these titles didnt quite make our top 3 this month, theyre still certainly worth taking a look at:
Publisher: Funselektor Labs/ Developer: Funselektor LabsRelease Date: 12th Aug 2021 (USA)/ 12th Aug 2021 (UK/EU) Taking third area this month is art of rally, an abstract take on top-down rally thats sure to have you leaping in for race after race.
The visual drawbacks present on Switch are undoubtedly a pity when compared to other versions, however the gameplay itself is difficult, feels genuine, and is increased further by the games general artistic vision. With lots of tracks, cars, and optional objectives to take pleasure in, this is well worth an appearance if you can conquer some of the Switch versions performance imperfections. We gave this one a really strong 8/10 in our review, and its been winning over the NL team since.
Publisher: Bethesda/ Developer: id SoftwareRelease Date: 19th Aug 2021 (USA)/ 19th Aug 2021 (UK/EU) In second is the new re-release of Quake, the conclusive variation of a renowned first-person shooter.
We explained this one as “a stellar port of one of video gamings real greats and an absolutely essential addition to your Switch library” in our review. Oh, did we mention that we offered it an incredible 10/10? Yeah, its that good.
This is an extremely slick remaster boasting flawless 60fps action, lots of material, and a wealth of online and co-op choices. If youve never ever played Quake previously, or if youre liking the noise of playing a super-duper variation of the video game you as soon as enjoyed, youve got to get this downloaded.
Publisher: Thomas Happ Games/ Developer: Thomas Happ GamesRelease Date: 11th Aug 2021 (USA)/ 11th Aug 2021 (UK/EU) Very directly (and we imply very narrowly) beating Quake to our leading spot this month, however, is Axiom Verge 2.
Were constantly up for experimenting with a good Metroidvania here at Nintendo Life, and the Axiom Verge video games are right up there with a few of the very best the genre needs to use. Were delighted to report that Axiom Verge 2 is a deserving follow-up to the original that perfectly stabilizes familiar components that made that first video game fantastic and brand-new ideas that provide the follow up its own identity.
With a huge world to check out, well-paced gameplay throughout and a fittingly mysterious environment to soak up, Metroidvania fans owe it to themselves to check this one out. What a month, eh?
