Japan

Nintendo published a neat little statistic on their Japanese website today: the 30 most downloaded games on the Japanese eShop in 2018. Just like the download charts on the eShop itself, there are two lists: one for games that also have physical versions and one for games that are only available on the eShop. Unsurprisingly, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate takes the top spot in the first list. Human: Fall Flat being the most downloaded digital-only title is a bit more surprising, however.
