Nintendo Switch has something exciting to share with its fans, entering the second half of the year. Additionally, after the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct presentation, Switch owners have a much better idea of what they’ve got to look forward to over the coming months. Aside from these virtual treats, Nintendo has also launched some cool accessories just for July and August
Nintendo Switch Games For July & August
So, if you’re here to note down some thrilling games to download to smooth out your summer vacations then we have compiled this special list just for our Nintendo Switch people. You’ll find your suitable game, most of them have also been released on Switch eShop also.
Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin
In 2021, you don’t only get to see Monster Hunter Rise stealing your heart as there is also a new entry expected in Capcom’s series coming to Switch. You’ll get an exciting portable spin-off of these Monster Hunter Stories as it is also getting a Nintendo Switch-based sequel.
Adopting the same art style seen in the 3DS original, Monster Hunter Stories 2 will feature a strong narrative focus, and will presumably retain the simple RPG mechanics the sub-series is known for. The protagonist, Monster Rider, befriends monsters from the series rather than slaying them to make a tail feather cap, so it’ll offer a different flavor of hunter vibes and thriller goodness alongside the more traditional entries on Switch.
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD brings the bespoke Wii entry in the series back with a high definition lick of paint, plus newly integrated stick-based swordplay as an optional alternative to the original gyro controls.
While this game’s slow start, compartmentalized world and requisite motion controls (not to mention Fi’s constant barrage of tips and advice) weren’t everyone’s cup of tea, we have very warm memories of our time with the ten-year-old game and we can’t wait to see how this Switch version compares.
Neo: The World Ends With You
This upcoming sequel to DS’s classic The World Ends With You was a real surprise when it was first revealed by Square Enix last November, but a very welcome one. We got a Switch version of the original in the form of The World Ends With You: Final Remix, which was great, although it always felt like the game worked better on DS. We¡re eager to see how this new game works on a system it’s designed for from the ground up. To get some hands-on experience with the game, you have to wait for the official launch of NEO: The World Ends With You on Nintendo Switch at the end of July.
The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles
After an extravagant debut on 3Ds in Japan in 2015, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is finally arriving in the West after six years. This most awaited game compiles both Capcom’s first and second games in this throwback series which sees you take on the role of Phoenix Wright’s ancestor, Ryunosuke Naruhodo as he travels to Victorian London and comes face to face with the World’s Greatest Detective. Yes, you guessed it write Herlock Sholmes.
It seems that Capcom didn’t want to incur the wrath of the Arthur Conan Doyle estate. If you are a Phoenix Wright series fan then you surely don’t want to miss out on this one, as you know in these games, the Japanese originals were apparently excellent.
No More Heroes III
Originally slated for a 2020 release, as with so many games No More Heroes 3 got pushed into this year. Although, we loved both of Travis Touchdown’s original Wii games on Nintendo Switch in the meantime, and we also enjoyed the Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes side-story, yet this sequel looks set to deliver the full porcelain-throned, laser-sworded Touchdown experience.
So, which one of these Nintendo Switch games excites you the most?
