As 2021 continues to pull us apart and the Switch continues to gain followers, it goes without saying that the most downloaded games of this year made their respective editors’ biggest hits at halftime. Now is the time to nominate and congratulate the Dematrialized Laureates.

Which titles have Japanese players thrown their way to? If you haven’t slept, don’t worry (and by the way, remember to see your insomnia sufferers again): Nintendo has just announced the ranking of the titles preferred by visitors to the eShop in the first half of 2021.
With some uncomfortable classics continuing to aid the passage of time without harm, the players of the archipelago also remind us that there is nothing more effective than a family J-RPG to keep you busy during the long months of imprisonment:
- Rise of the Monster Hunters
- Between us
- Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban!
- Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury
- Human case flat
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- New Pokémon Snap
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- Story of the Seasonal Pioneers of Olive Town
- 51 worldwide games
- The legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild
- Animal Crossing New Horizons
- Overcooked! 2
- Splatoon 2
- Fitness boxing 2 rhythm & exercise
- Super Mario Party
- Runic Factory 5
- Dragon Quest III
- Dragon Quest XI S
Unsurprisingly, Monster Hunter continues to establish itself as a must-have license from Capcom hunting in increasingly occupied countries, but it’s also interesting to note that the success of Among Us, late in the night for Westerns, would have grabbed hold of it too can Japan.
With nine titles in the top 20, Nintendo is apparently making itself royally and is even slipping off the launch of the console more than four years after its release. Do you mean a return to solid values? Not Square Enix will argue the opposite: 33 years after its thundering arrival on Famicom, Dragon Quest III is a reminder of the loyalty of the Japanese public, not without justifying the recent announcement of the HD 2D remake, which was also set to be a hit.
