Smash

Nintendo has shared two new lists on the Japanese eShop, revealing which games have been the most successful on its digital store throughout the first half of 2019.

The first list shows the top 30 most-downloaded games that are also available in physical form, while the second shows just those which are digital-only. Naturally, this means that physical sales are not represented in any way in these charts, and it is impossible to compare the number of downloads for a game in one list to that for a game in the other.

To be clear, the lists below show the most-downloaded titles on the Japanese eShop from 1st January - 30th June 2019:
