In case there was any doubt whatsoever about how well Smash might be doing in Japan (though given its crazy sales performance in the country at retail, there really shouldn’t have been), the new lists shared by Nintendo for the bestsellers on the Nintendo eShop in 2018 in Japan via the News app on the Switch should allay it. On the list for the digital performance of retail only games, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is far and away the bestseller, coming in ahead of every other game.

Interestingly enough, Pokemon Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! don’t seem to have done as well—yes, their sales are split across two SKUs, which lowers their potential ranking a bit, but even accounting for that, only one of them appears in the top 10.

Nintendo has also shared a second list comprised of digital-only games. This one sees Human: Fall Flat and Stardew Valley topping charts, with Hollow Knight rounding out the top five, demonstrating that good taste is universal.
