The third site this month is Katana ZERO. We awarded the powerful game in 9/10 in our review, praising the inspirational acting title 80s for its hard action sequences, haircut, gripping narrative, and an integral sense of style. a killer, no experience filling on Switch, we would recommend you go ahead and download this one at once.
Publisher: Disturbance / Developer: Image and Form
The narrow edge of its way to the second place this month SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech, a brand new series of SteamWorld's Image and Form drama. We gave this one to 8/10 in our review, saying, although it doesn't reach high heights SteamWorld Dig 2, the presentation is slick, the wit of the dialogue and the gameplay is surprisingly addictive. If you want more SteamWorld, this is worth your time.

However, while taking the top, and sitting proudly as our favorite e-shop game in April, there is Cup. In all honesty, we had never expected to see this one arrive at Switch, but here we have downloaded it firmly on our consoles and we couldn't be more proud. Another 9/10 said, “this is one” the same hard-to-see game, lovely, lovely, beautiful, which reached Xbox for the first time. Must be with you.

How we decide our e-Shop Choose the top three: As we reach the end of each month, Nintendo Life staff vote on their favorite titles from a list of games chosen by the editorial team. To qualify for this list, these games must have been released mainly as a Nintendo digital Switch eSop title in that particular month, and they must have been reviewed on Nintendo Life; we select the qualifying games based on their review scores.
Staff are then asked to vote for three games that they think deserve to sit at the top of that list; the first option gets 3 points, a second option gets 2 points, and the third option gets 1 point. These votes are then calculated to create three top lists, with the overall winner taking the top prize that month.
