Japan: Nintendo reveals top 30 titles on Switch eShop in 2021

by Pierre Bell

We’re just a few days away from the new year, and Nintendo has just revealed the top 30 most downloaded Switch games on the eShop in Japan for 2021. As always, this data does not include the sales of physical copies. The rankings for the year overall isn’t much different from the data that was released for the first half of the year; Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise continues to hold the top spot, with the sussy indie juggernaut Among Us following right behind. The biggest shake up comes from the November release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, coming in to catch the third and fifth positions, sandwiching the Japanese exclusive Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban. Check out the top 10 list below, or visit Nintendo’s Japanese website to view the full top 30.

  1. Monster Hunter Rise
  2. Among Us
  3. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond
  4. Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban!
  5. Pokemon Shining Pearl
  6. Human Fall Flat
  7. Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
  8. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  9. Minecraft
  10. Super Smash Bros Ultimate
