Coming up: The games of July 2021

There isn’t much on consoles and PC this month, but don’t forget the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Link’s back to liven up your summer.

Look Switch-ward

A remake is pretty clearly the biggest game of this month. Normally, that’d signal a pretty down month, in terms of new game releases, and it does the month too. But even if there were a bunch of games coming to retail in July of 2021, that remake would still be a pretty notable launch. Of course, that’s because it’s a Legend of Zelda title.

Yes, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword hits the Switch this month, and it’s none too soon. The summer doldrums are setting in big time now, with a relatively small array of new game releases on the calendar for July. And honestly too, what there is isn’t all that spectacular.

Nevertheless, Skyward Sword isn’t alone. Also somewhat notable are releases for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Cris Tales, and The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles.
