Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (March 13 – 19, 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: 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 also doesn’t move from the top spot!
