Japan: Top 10 for the Nintendo eShop (May 01 – May 07, 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, The Battle Cats POP is the new best-seller, while on Wii U, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is back to the top!
