The Japanese magazine Famitsu recently published which
Nintendo Switch games are the best-selling in Japan. And the list published by Famitsu has a few surprises in store.


Surprising leader

The biggest surprise in the list published by Famitsu is likely to be that neither Mario Kart 8 Deluxe nor The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are the front runners, but the third-person shooter Splatoon 2, directly followed by Super Smash Bros. Ultimate .

Also interesting is the fact that the sandbox game Minecraft can be found in ninth place, while 1-2-Switch, among other things, did not make it into the top 10.
