Nintendo Switch: Top 10 for January – October 2020 (Japan)

In the latest issue of the Nintendo Magazine (a rather fancy promotional booklet Nintendo regularly issue to promote its consoles and the games for them, available for free at retailers), Nintendo shared the Top 10 of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games between January and October 2020 (to be more precise, from December 30th 2019 to November 1st 2020).

The data was provided by Media Create, and only include retail games and sales (no digital). It also include bundles.

There’s absolutely no surprise in the Top 10 Software below, especially if you’ve been following the weekly reports from Famitsu, but it’s still interesting to see which games have been the most popular so far in 2020.
