A gaming drought? What drought?
While the earlier months of the year were a bit slower for the Nintendo Switch in terms of meaningful game releases, things began to pick up starting May, and reached a zenith in July, which saw a multitude of great new releases for the platform.
From Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker to Octopath Traveler, from Go Vacation to Paladins, and more, there were a host of great new games that launched for the Switch this month- and now, with July finally ending, Nintendo has shared a brand new video highlighting the best games that were available on the Switch this month- fully priced retail games, free to play games, smaller indie games, first party games, third party games, everything.
It’s a frankly impressive lineup, and it’s not a stretch to say that no other console had a better July than the Switch did. Of course, Nintendo is gearing up for some killer games in the back half of the year as well, such as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee– so let’s see if they can keep this pace of releases up.
