Shop Watch July 2021

The month begins as the last month ends. Literally, as two releases from the last two weeks of June start off July.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance – The Rebootening and The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos – Chicken Edition have already been released. These titles were late June entries.

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox (and loads of fun) hits Switch and PCs this date. Adol’s quest does not end with his ride at the bottom of the ocean. Instead, it’s his freedom which gets sunk this time around. This game uses the same three-party engine from Ys VII, IV, and VIII; games I have somehow put in chronological release order.

Mid month is the HD version of Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I’ve been on Zelda kick and now you get to hear about.

July 20 sees the release of the 10th Anniversary of Akiba’s Trip. The update, Hellbound and Debriefed, is being re-released for Switch and PS4.

Cris Tales has been pushed back to this week as well. The demo was good, so here’s hoping it can stick to its schedule this time.

The month ends with you! Well, no. NEO The World Ends With You hits the Switch on July 27. I tried to find a Switch copy of the first one in anticipation, but no dice.

That’s it for this month. The next two look light on releases but still have some decent named games arriving, such as the first next-gen Tales title: Anime Sword Guy and Wedding Dress Warrior.

I kid. Tales games are fun.
