Only a few days before the new year, Nintendo just announced the 30 most downloaded Switch games on the Japanese eShop in 2021. As always, this data does not include the sales of physical copies. The annual ranking is not much different from the data released in the first half of the year; Capcom’s Monster Hunter Rise continues to top the list, closely followed by the lively independent game giant “Among Us.” The biggest change comes from the Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl released in November, which entered the third and fifth places, sandwiched between Japan’s exclusive Momotaro Electric Railway: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban.Check out the top 10 list below, or visit Nintendo’s Japanese website View the complete top 30.
