Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (February 20 – 26, 2017)

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, Monster Hunter XX is still the best-seller, while on Wii U, Minecraft: Wii U Edition is finally back at the top.
