Some Of The Best Selling Nintendo Switch Games On The Nintendo eShop In USA

Nintendo released the Switch on March 3 earlier this year. It has been selling very well. Now, it has been a while since I have last done an update on the eShop for Switch, since it is hard to keep up with everything Switch related. This article will be based on some of the bestselling digital games as of middle September, onthe Nintendo eShop for Switch in the US. (DISCLAIMER: This does not include any DLC, Season Passes, or MicroTransactions.) 

Sonic Mania was released on the Nintendo Switch eShop as a digital exclusive on August 15. It takes players back to Sonic the Hedgehog’s heydays. The game has ever since been the bestselling game on the Nintendo eShop.

Secondly, Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle came out on August 29 and is right behind Sonic Mania in American Digital Switch sales. You can purchase this digitally and physically. The game was actually made and published by Ubisoft.

Next, 2K put out NBA 2K18 on all consoles, including Switch. The game has surprisingly sold very well off of the Switch eShop; it even beat RBI Baseball 2017 which is not on the list. It is also the first NBA 2K game on a Nintendo console.

At number 4, we have Overcooked Special Edition. It is another top selling game on the eShop. This version came out on July 27. It was made by Team 17 and is about cooking. It is almost like the Internet Flash cooking games

Finally, number 5 is Double Dragon 4. The retro 2D side scroller released on eShop September 7. The game is a fighting game. It first released on PlayStation 4 and PC earlier this year.

There you go. Out of these games, I would recommend getting Sonic Mania and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle. I had a blast with Sonic Mania and look forward to playing Mario + Rabbids. They both should be a great pick.

Super Mario Run on iOS 11 Using the New Screen Capture 

Apple released iOS 11 today. Over a hundred features have been added. One of them allows you to screen capture your phone.

In this video, you will see Super Mario Run. The game is $9.99 USD on iOS as well Android. It is a fun game to play on a phone. I think it is worth the $10 bucks.

The game is in reality not this choppy. The new update causes gameplay to do so when recording. My PC does it too for certain games but not this bad.

Is Nintendo Going To Make Smart Phones?

My Vlog On This

Nintendo America, COO Reggie Fils-aime was talking about how successful their software has been on smart phones, like Android and iPhone. He said, “Some of these efforts involve Nintendo’s mobile app business, which includes the “Super Mario Run” game. That title has been downloaded more than 150 million units to date — and in turn become not just a profit driver, but also a kind of market intelligence tool for the company. Nintendo has seen a lot of success for it in markets where it doesn’t sell any hardware yet. Now, it can use those insights to target these markets by introducing its own hardware there.” (Shigeru News)

Now, the word “yet” is what made me immediately think. Then, Reggie goes on to say it is a good way to see how they could do on new hardware. This could be suggesting that Nintendo is considering going down the Mobile route, in terms of their own hardware. Or it could mean nothing at all.

What do you readers think? Let us know.
