Nintendo Switch releases July 18-24, 2021 – Thumbsticks


Pokémon Unite and Cris Tales headline this week’s lineup of new releases to the Nintendo Switch online store.

It’s fair to say that last year’s reveal of Pokemon unite did not excite some fans. Those who have a feeling of unjustified right for the most part. Still, we’re sure they’ll check out this new MOBA from TiMi Studios when it releases on Wednesday.

Pokemon unite doesn’t seem like an innovative entry in its genre, but it’s likely to find an audience despite the initial outcry. Player feedback on the recent Network Test beta has been cautiously optimistic.

Our Nintendo Switch pick of the week is Tales of Cries, the new action RPG expected from Dreams Uncorporated / Syck. If you’ve played the free eShop demo, you’ll know it’s an engaging game with a compelling story that draws on the studio’s Colombian heritage. The game’s energetic combat and time-manipulation mechanics make it a highlight of Switch this summer.

Other new Nintendo Switch versions include Cotton restart, Fatal Twelve, and Akiba’s journey: hellish and debriefing.

Here’s the full list of upcoming Switch games. We will update this post throughout the week with any late additions.

We hate to ask, but …

Thumbsticks has a few goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most of the media won’t, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It’s hard to achieve these goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to keep writing what other people won’t, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can. allow it – so consider supporting us on Patreon.
