Nintendo reveals that Minecraft was the number one download on Switch in Japan, plus the overall top 30

Numbers don't lie. Okay sometimes they do, but in this case, they likely don't.

Nintendo has provided a full list of top-earners on the Switch eShop for both Japan and the rest of the world, and it's a pretty interesting set of info. For one, Minecraft is the top-seller in Japan, re-iterating just how popular the now Microsoft-led franchise is even today.

In other regions Stardew Valley took the top spot (man, developer Eric Barone might be the next person who buys a house in Beverly Hills), followed closely by Minecraft, Sonic Mania, and Rocket League. Outside of Snipperclips the entire top five outside of Japan is dominated by multi-platform releases -- something that wouldn't have been possible on Wii U, and denotes a distinct turning point for third parties on the Switch.

Feel free to peruse the full lists below!
