Nintendo Life eShop Selects – October 2021

EShop selection

October was another great month for eShop Gems, with loads of new games to choose from that are well worth your time.

These awards are designed to celebrate the best of Nintendo’s digital store and to bring some love and attention to the 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 October 2021!

Honorable mentions:

These titles didn’t quite make it into the top 3 this month, but they’re still worth a look:

Twilight (change eShop)Twilight (change eShop)

Editor: New Blood Interactive / Developer: New Blood Interactive

Release date: 28 Oct 2021 (United States of America)

In third place this month we have Dusk, an incredible port of the Quake-inspired shooter from 2018.

It faced pretty tough competition this month, but in our review we said Dusk is “damn impressive software, and possibly the best Unity port for Switch we’ve ever seen.” Needless to say, if you’re into your old school shooters and wish there were more games as good as Quake, download this one and you’re guaranteed to have a good time.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut (Switch eShop)Disco Elysium: The Final Cut (Switch eShop)

Editor: BRIDLE / Developer: BRIDLE

Release date: 12 Oct 2021 (United States of America) / 12 Oct 2021 (UK / EU)

In second place we have Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, which, along with our first-placed finish below, absolutely devoured the voices of the staff this month.

With some of the best spelling ever seen in a video game, a great, choice-driven narrative with wonderful dialogue, and impressively high replayability, this RPG should not be missed. We called it “an absolute triumph” in our review and praised it as a truly unique gaming experience – which is pretty hard to come by these days.

This is one of the best RPGs available on Switch. So what are you waiting for

Tetris Effect: Connected (Switch eShop)Tetris effect: Connected (switch eShop)

Editor: Improve games / Developer: Resonair

Release date: Oct 8, 2021 (United States of America) / Oct 8, 2021 (UK / EU)

When Disco Elysium devoured voices, Tetris Effect: Connected devoured She.

Yes, Tetris Effect: Connected ranks first this month and is perhaps the best iteration of one of the most iconic video games of all time. While some will say the VR versions of Tetris Effect are in the right place, the portability of the Switch version makes this port just as indispensable in our eyes, so you can take the best version of Tetris with you wherever you go.

It’s hard not to love Tetris and the NL team Yes, really loves Tetris Effect: Connected. Come on, treat yourself to something.

This is how we decide our eShop selects the top 3: At the end of each month, Nintendo Life employees vote on their favorite titles from a list of games selected by the editorial team. To qualify for this list, those games must have been released as a digital-only Nintendo Switch eShop title and reviewed on Nintendo Life that particular month; We select the qualifying games based on their evaluation results.

Staff will then be asked to vote for three games that they believe are at the top of that list. The first choice receives 3 points, the second choice 2 points and the third choice 1 point. These votes are then added together to create a top 3 list, with the overall winner receiving the month’s grand prize.
