Sorry, when did it become October? Well, we guess it’s time to look back in September for our monthly dose of eShop Selects!

It’s autumn (or fall, whatever term you like to use for the season of crisp leaves). The nights are drawing near. The temperature is dropping. And the holiday season is fast approaching; we know, we are sorry. But that means there are plenty of video games on the way, and you need to know which ones are the best that you can get from the e-store.

What games will put a smile on your face and keep you nice and cozy when the cold weather arrives? keep reading…

Honorable mentions:

Unless you’ve been living under your covers for the last month, then you know September has been packed – this is one of our biggest lineups for eShop Selects! So if you don’t agree with our top three, here’s a healthy dose of great eShop titles for you:

Radiant Silvergun (Switch eShop)

Radiant Silvergun (Switch eShop)

Editor: High voltage cable / Developer: Treasure

Release date: September 13, 2022 (USA) / September 13, 2022 (UK/EU)

Well… that was a lot of 9/10, right? How about another? Treasure’s classic Sega Saturn shmup Radiant Silver Gun surprised us during a Nintendo Direct by launching on the same day it was announced! We knew it was coming thanks to a Tokyo Game Show preview schedule, but it’s actually here, after a bit of a glitch on the eShop in North America.

And thank goodness, because this game is still holding up almost 25 years later. It’s sassy, ​​beautiful, bright, bold, blessed, and perhaps one of the best shmups of all time. And while it’s often brutally difficult, Story Mode offers a cozier introduction to a genre-defying classic.

We’re in love, basically. Find out exactly everything we love about Radiant Silvergun in our review.

Tunic (Switch eShop)

Editor: finji / Developer: Team TUNIC

Release date: September 27, 2022 (USA) / September 27, 2022 (UK/EU)

we knew this Dyed coming to Switch eventually, it’s a cute little The legend of Zelda fox type game!? Y Sayo doesn’t disappoint After receiving critical acclaim on Xbox and PC earlier in the year, Tunic really feels right at home on a Nintendo console.

However, don’t let the cuteness fool you, as there is a plethora of Dark souls-Eqsue fights to sink his teeth into it. On top of that, the game is also a love letter to old video game manuals. The game manual, which we have previously covered, invites you to take advantage of your childhood when you sat in front of NES and SNES and scribbled solutions. It is gloriously charming.

Verify our review 8/10 of Robe for more fantastic fox fun.

Return to Monkey Island (Switch eShop)

Editor: Return Digital / Developer: terrible toy box

Release date: September 19, 2022 (USA) / September 19, 2022 (UK/EU)

Guybrush Ulysses Threepwood came back to us on Talk Like a Pirate Day, and we’ve never been happier. Return to Monkey Island is just that: a return to one of the best point-and-click series ever made, with Ron Gilbert and Dave Grossman back to show us how it’s done, and then some.

It’s a nostalgic trip that feels fresh, a celebration and a twist on all that has come before, finely crafted with all the ingenuity we’ve come to know and love. It’s also completely intuitive on Switch. There is hardly a grain of sand out of place, and it shines like a treasure that we have kept close to all of these. No need to walk the plank with this one.

Haven’t you seen the enthusiastic return of Guybrush yet? Our 9/10 review should convince you to set sail.

< Nintendo Life eShop Picks - August 2022

How we decided on our eShop Select the top three: As we come to the end of each month, the Nintendo Life staff votes for their favorite titles from a list of games selected 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 the ranking games based on their review scores.

The staff is then asked to vote for three games that they think deserve to be at the top of that list; the first option gets 3 points, the second option gets 2 points, and the third option gets 1 point. These votes are then counted to create a top three list, with the overall winner taking that month’s top prize.
