Japan: Top 25 of the best-selling SNES Virtual Console titles on New Nintendo 3DS (LTD)

Nintendo eShop

Nintendo regularly shares various Software charts via its website in Japan (without any actual sales data), generally on specific occasions (after a major Nintendo eShop sale, for example). And today, the company shared something rather unexpected but still pretty interesting: the Top 25 of the best-selling SNES Virtual Console titles on New Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo specifies that the Top 25 below shows the best-selling games since launch, with cumulative sales up to February 11th. In other words, not just a specific period or year.

The Top 3 is hardly surprising, as Super Mario World, Earthbound, and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past are considered all-time classics by many players!
