Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (February 27 – March 05, 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.

NB: starting this week, the Top 10 is revealed on Friday. Also, the Top 10 for the Nintendo Switch will start at a later date.

On Nintendo 3DS, Monster Hunter XX is still the best-seller, while on Wii U, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the new #1!
