Nintendo has released details on the top 25 eShop downloads in Japan since the Switch launched back in March. Puzzle co-op game Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! has topped the list, with Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition taking second place and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe picking up bronze in third.
There is some interesting reading here with indie titles like Snipperclips and Kamiko placing within the top 5, showing that fans are willing to invest in what some may call smaller titles. The Minecraft giant keeps earning more sales to no surprise; otherwise it's great to see ARMS crack the top 10 considering it has been out less than a month. The trends do show that plenty of Switch owners in Japan still opt for cartridge copies of retail games, opening the door for download titles on the eShop charts.
