The following are the best-selling games on Switch eShop in July 2021 (Japan)


Nintendo released an updated list of its best-selling games on the eShop in Japan, this time covering July 2021.

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin won this time, ahead of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. It is worth noting that Monster Hunter was launched a week before Skyward Sword HD-maybe the extra time helps to get the first place?

The first four games of this month are all brand new, Crayon Shin-Chan and eBaseball Professional Baseball Spirit 2021 Won third and fourth place.

Only paid downloads are included in the list, and any games sold during this period are appropriately marked (thank you, Perfect nintendo). The secondary number shows the position of the chart for the previous month:
