Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (January 2 – 8, 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, Super Mario Bros. 3 is the new best-seller (thanks to the New Year sale), while on Wii U, there’s also a new best-seller: Super Mario World!
