Niche Release Recap – July 2021

Ys IX: Monstrum Nox

Now that we are a few days into July 2021, it’s time to once again look at some of the major video game releases coming in the month ahead.

While there aren’t many major AAA games coming out this month, there are still plenty of ports and interesting indie games to look forward to. The latter includes the likes of Boomerang X, Cris Tales, Chernobylite, Blaster Master Zero 3, and Eldest Souls. 

For those middleware titles that trip the line between the two (and we’re sure that and the above are up for debate); we have The Silver Case 2425, Akiba’s Trip: Hellbound & Debriefed, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector, The Forgotten City, and Bustafellows. 

Of course, few major AAA releases doesn’t mean none; with the Nintendo Switch having access to the lion’s share. Highlights include Ys IX: Monstrum Nox (heading to Windows PC and Nintendo Switch), Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, and NEO: The World Ends with You.

Mobile players have a few titles to boast about as well, with The Witcher: Monster Slayer, NieR Re[in]carnation, and Final Fantasy Pixel Remaster Series. The latter is also coming to Windows PC.
