Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (August 8th – 14th, 2016)

In Japan, Nintendo is regularly posting weekly rankings for the Nintendo eShop on its website (more precisely, its Topics section). Obviously, there’s no actual sales data, but they give us a good idea of what Japanese players are buying on the Nintendo eShop. Also, please note the rankings below include digital pre-orders, which explains why some unreleased games are charting.

On Nintendo 3DS, Pokémon Yellow Version: Special Pikachu Edition is back at #1, while on Wii U, Xenoblade Chronicles is still dominating sales (for the third week in a row)!
