Japan: Nintendo Switch – Top 10 Software for January 4th to October 31st 2021

In the latest issue of the Nintendo Magazine (a rather fancy promotional booklet Nintendo regularly issue to promote their consoles and the games for them, available for free at retailers), Nintendo shared the Top 10 of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games between January and October 2021 (to be more precise, from January 4th to October 31st).

The data was provided by Media Create, and only include retail games and sales (no digital). It also include bundles.

There’s absolutely no surprise in the Top 10 Software below, especially if you’ve been following the weekly reports from Famitsu, but it’s still interesting to see which games have been the most popular so far in 2021!
