Switch: Nintendo unveils the list of the 30 best-selling video games of 2017!

by Jerry

Nintendo has just unveiled the top 30 best-selling video games online in 2017. As usual, the manufacturer published two different rankings: one dedicated to sales in Japan, and one dedicated to sales abroad. As you will see, these two lists don't have much in common!

At the beginning of the year, many technology giants are publishing their retrospective of the year 2017. In the field of video games, we were first able to discover the retrospective of Steam. The top 100 of the platform has thus put ahead the best titles of the past year according to several categories. Shortly after, Japanese manufacturer Sony unveiled its top 20 best-selling video games on the Playstation Store in 2017. It's Nintendo's turn today to take stock!

Switch: Nintendo unveils the list of best-selling games in Japan and abroad in 2017!

As Nintendo states in its press release, both lists are based only on online sales. Titles purchased in a physical store are therefore not taken into account by the ranking. We start with the 30 best-selling titles in Japan, the console manufacturer's home country.
