This year is certainly progressing, and as we head towards Spring (for you, the Northern Hemisphere readers), we can reflect on some more excellent eShop titles of recent times. This month’s team voting has been fascinating and we have three excellent games left.
These awards aim to celebrate the best of Nintendo’s digital store and give some love and attention to games that could so easily be overlooked in Switch’s ever-expanding download library. It’s worth noting that we focused on download-only games and not expansions / DLC, so the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass was Wave 1 not included. It’s also been a month with some notable retail games, but that’s all, of course Online shop games.
So let’s start. Here are the best Switch eShop games of March 2022!
While these titles didn’t quite make our top 3 this month, they’re still worth checking out:
Editor: digerati / Developer: Glee Cheese
It was a very close affair with Dawn of the Monsters, but A Musical Story takes Bronze this month.
Developed by Glee Cheese, this is a very unique take on the rhythm music genre. Visually and stylistically it has a 70’s vibe, well, groovy, but it’s also a game where the music is central. The focus of this game is to really focus on listening to the music, rather than watching a traditional rhythm track on screen. This can lead to a bit of a learning curve, but instinctive play can be a pleasure when it “clicks”.
Our test shows how it works.
Editor: WayForward / Developer: 1 p.m. games
Developed by 13AM Games and published by WayForward, this is a love letter to Kaiju movies.
As you can see from the art and overall footage, this is a belt scroller you can do it with feel like a big monster causing chaos. Everything is almost comic-book stylistically, with a setting that aims to please fans of monster movies. It’s especially fun in local co-op, and you can enjoy powerful combat with four different characters.
It’s a pretty unique offering for Switch and we really liked it in our review.
Editor: border / Developer: ecomotive
FAR: Lonely Sails was a game that captured our imaginations in 2019, hence the arrival of FAR: Changing tides Early March was very welcome.
As the name suggests, this time you keep a large boat afloat for your journey while managing the vehicle and maintaining it to keep moving. Not only is the narration extremely effective, but the presentation is delightfully good in this Switch version, from beautiful music cues to crisp visuals. We gave it a 9/10 in our review; below is his conclusion.
“A wonderful experience from the moment you set sail, FAR: Changing Tides expands on the world and gameplay ideas of its predecessor with scale, detail and fantastic moments of discovery. Okomotive started Moloch with its original, neat, left-to-right mechanics, then took it in every other direction it could go.
< Nintendo Life eShop Picks – February 2022
This is how we decide our eShop Selects Top 3: At the end of each month, Nintendo Life staff vote on their favorite titles from a list of games handpicked by the editors. To qualify for this list, these games must have been released as a digital-only Nintendo Switch eShop title and reviewed on Nintendo Life in that specific month; We select the qualifying games based on their rating results.
Staff are then asked to vote for three games that they feel deserve to be at the top of this list. The first choice gets 3 points, the second choice 2 points and the third choice 1 point. These votes are then tallied to create a top 3 list, with the overall winner receiving the top prize of the month.
