We've written in the past that Nintendo's successes on YouTube are only sporadic, perhaps as a result of the company's arguably old-fashioned approach to allowing coverage of its games. Nevertheless, there's a surprise entry in a list of 'trending' games on the video service for April.

The definition of 'trending' is games "that saw the best improvements in number of videos uploaded and increase in watchtime"; number eight has certainly surprised us.

  1. Mortal Kombat X
  2. Call of Duty: Black Ops 3
  3. Bloodborne
  4. Killing Floor 2
  5. MLB 15: The Show
  6. Star Wars Battlefront (the upcoming 2015 one)
  7. The Witcher 3
  8. Pokémon Rumble World
  9. Neverwinter
  10. Army of Two: The Devil's Cartel

Pokémon Rumble World is the first free-to-play entry in the spin-off series, and has clearly been a popular presence on YouTube since its early April arrival. It may have had a mixed critical reception - though we quite liked it - but it's evidently gone down well with some fans.

Are you brawling with 'mon every day in the 3DS release?
