A great tribute to the 3D platformers of the N64 and PSOne era, lonistis It was a big surprise this month. The Adventures of Hana the tanuki is just as addictive as our favorite collections, with bright colors and low-poly visuals that strike us straight into our nostalgic hearts. But it takes influence from platforms and games throughout the ages, from Super Mario Odyssey to me Super Mario 64.
The best part? This won’t even cost you $5.00. We introduced the game a 9/10 in our review How many times can you get 9/10 with less than five?

We’ve been waiting for months Rogue Legacy 2 to make its way to the Switch — and the wait was worth it. Given how unique the original is Rogue Legacy It was, we shouldn’t be surprised that this came out on top as our favorite eShop game, but what I was It was surprisingly cast in the shade on the day of the Indie World show.

The old system is back and better than ever. The writing is still somewhat funny. And there are new functions and game modes that will keep you coming back again and again.

How do we decide our online store picks the top three: As we get to the end of each month, the Nintendo Life team votes on their favorite titles from a list of games hand-picked by the editorial team. To qualify for this list, these games must have been released as a digital-only Nintendo Switch eShop title in that particular month, and must have been reviewed on Nintendo Life; We select eligible games based on the results of their review.
The staff is then asked to vote for three matches that they think deserve to sit at the top of the list; The first choice gets 3 points, the second choice gets 2 points, and the third one gets 1 point. These votes are then tallied to create a list of the top three, with the overall winner taking home the first prize for the month.
