The 30 Most-Downloaded Switch Games During The First Half Of 2020 (Japan)

Both retail and digital-only games included
by Ryan Craddock 3 hours agoIn some ways, 2020 has felt like a pretty quiet year on the Nintendo front, but that doesn’t mean that Switch owners have been starved of content. We’d argue that the opposite is true, in fact, especially if you’re using this slight lull in major new releases to pick up games you might have missed, and that’s exactly what players in Japan have been doing.
Nintendo has released a list of the top 30 best-selling games on the Switch eShop during the first half of 2020. There are two charts – one for downloads of retail games and one for digital exclusives – and as you can see, plenty of games that originally launched in years gone by are still doing the business today.
Thanks to Perfectly Nintendo for compiling these lists:
