Japan’s top Nintendo Switch eShop games in June and first half of 2021

Nintendo has shared an update for its download rankings to show the top 20 Nintendo Switch eShop games in Japan for June 2021. We also got a separate update that shows the top Switch eShop game downloads in Japan for the first half of 2021.

Game Builder Garage has been quite successful in Japan and managed to nab the #1 spot for June 2021. Mario Golf: Super Rush was another new release in June, and it managed to finish at #2. Among Us continues to be popular with a #3 finish, followed by another new release in Legend of Mana at #4. Dragon Quest XI S, which was #12 last month, managed to jump up a few spots to take #5. Last month’s top-selling title in Monster Hunter Rise dropped to #7, but we’ll likely see it remain in the top 20 for a few more months.
