With the "Game of the Year" award from 2018, it's time to return to our usual monthly Nintendo Life eShop Selects. Do not worry, December, we had not forgotten you!
These awards aim to celebrate the best of Nintendo's digital store by giving the games some love and attention that could easily be missed on the switches growing library.
So let's start! Here are the best Switch eShop games from December 2018!
Although not quite among the top three this month, they are still worth a visit.

This month jumped directly to third place is the strange and wonderful Katamari Damacy REROL L . Originally released on PlayStation 2 in 2004, this version offers a truly bizarre experience that is different from nothing else. We rated the strange mix of puzzle and platform action in our review as a 9/10 and said that the Switch Edition is the easiest way to play it outside the dust of your old PS2. A must in our eyes and hopefully in your eyes.

Closing Katamari to second place is Everspace – Stellar Editio n . With this lone, predatory space combat, you must constantly weigh the costs of exploring against fleeing before being detected by the enemy forces, and you have a good time. We gave this test an 8/10 rating in our review and found that the switch port "scratches keeping the full experience on a handheld". Make & # 39; s!

And now for what you've all been waiting for: our favorite eShop game in December 2018 is the extremely beautiful GRIS . GRIS is one of those games that you simply have to experience . We rated it a 9/10 in our review, with the relatively short length being pretty much the only thing that stands in the way of its pure perfection. We said, "Gris should necessarily be placed in the same family as Journey Inside and other modern classics, since nothing else we've ever played looked or felt so beautiful."

How we decide that our eShop will determine the top three: When we reach the end of each month, Nintendo Life employees vote on their favorite titles from a list of editions selected by the editorial staff. To qualify for this list, these games must have been released primarily as a digital Nintendo Switch eShop title this month and reviewed on Nintendo Life. We select the qualifiers according to their scoring results.
Employees are then asked to vote for three games that they believe deserve to be high on the list; The first choice gets 3 points, the second choice 2 points and the third choice 1 point. These votes are then counted to create a top 3 list, with the overall winner receiving the top prize of the month.
