Switch Eshop August 2020

Nintendo has shared its roundup of the most-downloaded Switch eShop games during August 2020. Since launching back in March Animal Crossing: New Horizons regularly takes the monthly top spot, although last month it was displaced by new release Paper Mario: The Origami King. In August it was a much older release that took the top spot, though.

Yes, up three places from July, the evergreen Minecraft was the most-downloaded game on the Switch eShop in August 2020. There's also a new entry at number 3 in the form of Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition and indie release Spiritfarer makes an impressive debut at 4.

You can check out the full list below. It's based on the number of Nintendo eShop downloads (so no physical sales) in European territories during the whole month:

  1. Minecraft
  2. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
  3. Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition
  4. Spiritfarer
