Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has a stranglehold on every region’s top spot this week, while SKIPMORE’s bite-sized adventure Kamiko moved up within the top 3. Puyo Puyo Tetris is in familiar territory as well outside of Japan, where it failed to chart entirely (likely due to it being a launch title and not a fairly new release). Congrats are in order to developer aeiowu, as their newly released rolling rogue-like TumbleSeed landed between the 5th and 7th positions in all four English-speaking territories.

With the Nintendo Switch offering access to eShops around the globe, it’s now easier than ever for players to expand their digital library without the hassle of importing titles from overseas. Accessing another region’s eShop is as easy as creating a new account at accounts.nintendo.com with an e-mail address different from the one used on your primary account. You’ll then want to choose the region you wish to access as your home country (Japan, for instance) during the creation process. You should receive a 4-digit code via e-mail to activate the new account, which will then allow you to add and link it through the Settings menu on your Nintendo Switch.

After creating and linking the account as a new user on your Switch, select the eShop icon, choose the account for the region you wish to access, and that’s that!
