Nintendo has shared a list of the top 15 best-selling eShop games of December 2018 in Europe, letting us see which titles from the console's ever-growing library really did the numbers over the festive period.

While the game sitting at number one will only surprise very few people reading these pages, December had the potential to mix things up a bit thanks to an amazingly large sale that discounted more than 600 games in the region in the week building up to Christmas. Despite this, and perhaps the odd surprise here and there, much of the chart is filled with first-party favourites; Mario is pretty hard to get away from in the top five.

The rankings below have been shared via the Switch's News Channel, and are based on the number of Nintendo eShop downloads in European territories during the whole month. Sadly, Nintendo hasn't provided exact sales figures:

1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
2. Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
3. Super Mario Party
4. Crypt of the NecroDancer
5. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
6. Gris
7. Stardew Valley
8. Octopath Traveler
9. Minecraft
10. Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy
11. Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!
12. Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
13. Overcooked 2
14. FIFA 19
15. Diablo III: Eternal Collection
