Nintendo Life eShop Selects – February 2021 – Feature

EShop chooses

Can you believe we are already two months into the year ?! Fortunately, no matter how fast time passes, the Switch eShop seems to offer a dose after dose of great digital content to enjoy, and February was no different.

These awards aim to celebrate the best of Nintendo’s digital store and give a little love and attention to the games that could so easily be missed in the Switch’s ever-growing library.

So let’s get started. Here are the best Switch eShop games from February 2021!

Honest reviews:

Although these titles did not quite reach our top three this month, they are still worth checking out.

UnderMine (Switch eShop)UnderMine (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Thorium entertainment / Developer: Thorium entertainment

Release Date: February 11, 2021 (USA) / February 11, 2021 (UK / EU)

The third place this month is UnderMine, a delicious roguelite that is easy to recommend. In our review, we said that the game “demonstrates clear mastery in its overall design, controls, upgrade systems, and presentation, all of which come together to create a thoroughly captivating experience” and award it a mighty 9/10.

Of course, it will not change the minds of anyone who is tired of the roguelite genre, but if you are ready for another adventure, it is definitely worth your time.

Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection (Switch eShop)Ghosts' n Goblins Resurrection (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Capcom / Developer: Capcom

Release Date: February 25, 2021 (USA) / February 25, 2021 (UK / EU)

In second place is Ghosts’ n Goblins Resurrection, a game that stays true to its old-school roots while implementing a fresh approach that is definitely worth looking at. While several members of our team have enjoyed their time exploring its beautiful environments and brutal gameplay reminiscent of friendlier times in NES days, our recommendation comes with a caveat: sometimes this is especially brutal, to the point where anyone not looking for a serious challenge can be deterred.

We encourage you to read our full review if you are interested in checking this out Ghost a Goblins love letter; if the sound of the difficulty does not bother you, continue to get this downloaded ASAP.

Capcom Arcade Stadium (Switch eShop)Capcom Arcade Stadium (Switch eShop)

Publisher: Capcom / Developer: Capcom

Release Date: 18 Feb 2021 (USA) / 18 Feb 2021 (UK / EU)

Taking the gold this month, however, is Capcom Arcade Stadium. We feel a little bit cheated here as this version technically contains 30 games in one, but that just makes it even more tempting, right?

Capcom Arcade Stadium can be downloaded for free (initially), giving you access to the retro shooter, 1943. Then you can download the additional 30 games, where the full set costs £ 29.99 / $ 39.99 in total. What you decide to buy is of course up to you, but we were pleasantly surprised by the range of games on offer – especially the shooters – and came away feeling that the package was excellent value for money.

If you’re interested in retro games or Capcom’s history, you can not really go wrong with downloading Arcade Stadium and browsing its selection of games. Go ahead, treat yourselff.

How we decide that our eShop chooses the top three: As we reach the end of each month, Nintendo Life staff vote on their favorite titles from a list of games selected by the editorial team. To qualify for this list, these games must be released as a digital Nintendo Switch eShop title in that month and must be reviewed on Nintendo Life; we select the qualifying games based on their review score.

Staff are then asked to vote on three games that they believe deserve to be at the very top of the list; first choice gets 3 points, second choice gets 2 points and third choice gets 1 point. These votes are then counted to create a top-three list where the overall winner takes this month’s top prize.
