Switch EShop 2.JPG

Nintendo has released a list of the most-downloaded Switch eShop games of 2019 across the Americas, and we've shared the entire thing for you lovely lot below.

According to Nintendo's official description of the list, the ranking is "based on Nintendo eShop unit sales in 2019". This appears to include sales of '$0', however - as you'll find out when you see which game is sitting at number one - hence our decision to describe the list as 'most-downloaded' rather than 'most-sold'.

Let's take a look, shall we?


  1. Fortnite
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
  3. Minecraft
  4. Cuphead
  5. Untitled Goose Game
  6. Pokémon Sword
  7. Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  8. NBA 2K19
  9. New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe
  10. Dragon Ball FighterZ
  11. Pokémon Shield
  12. Super Mario Maker 2
  13. Overcooked 2
  14. Hollow Knight
  15. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
  16. Luigi's Mansion 3
  17. Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda
  18. Super Mario Party

  21. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order
  22. Undertale
  23. Crypt of the NecroDancer
  24. Warframe
  25. Mortal Kombat 11

Of course, with this list being made up of eShop sales only, it's hard to get an accurate measure of how well these top indie games truly performed against Nintendo's heavy hitters. Still, it's interesting to see which titles were the most popular for those wanting to buy their games digitally.

Earlier today, we also shared a list of the top 20 most-played Switch games of 2019 based on players' play times.
