Another new month and another month filled with new Nintendo Switch games and while we will most likely still be playing Mario Golf Super Rush, that does not mean we cannot devote a little time to some of the new titles that are on the way for July.


It is not just Pokemon that is keeping us busy either as Animal Crossing: New Horizons continues to deliver huge updates on the regular and there are many other games on the way for the console this month that will be keeping us busy.

We are also keeping track of the best Nintendo Switch games on the market right now if you want more choices of things to play, but for all that is new July, scroll down and see what's coming.

What's new with Nintendo Switch Online in July 2021?

Sound the 'more games are being added to Nintendo Switch Online' klaxon! We have three games on the way to join the other retro classics this month and if we sound surprised, it is because it is not a service that updates regularly unlike Game Pass and PS Now.

The three games we will be able to play as part of the subscription are Claymates, Jelly Boy and Bombuzal! They are all being added on the same day, 28th July 2021.

Don't have Nintendo Switch Online yet? Well, you can take advantage of the 7-day free trial for the Nintendo Switch Online club, which is more than enough time to complete a few of the classic NES and SNES titles. Don't forget to turn auto-renew off though if you do only want it for one week, though.

In other news, we're still waiting to learn whether the Nintendo Switch Pro console is really on its way - we'll be sure to let you know if we hear anything!
