Given how wildly popular Minecraft is, it should come as no surprise that the newly released Nintendo Switch Edition has managed to dethrone Mario Kart 8 Deluxe from its #1 slot. NBA Playgrounds seems to be doing well too, entering every chart outside of Japan in the top three. Perhaps its well-timed release during the NBA playoffs has paid off?

We’ll have to wait and see if Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition and NBA Playgrounds have the staying power to stick around next Monday. My guess is that we’ll be seeing Minecraft at or near the top for the foreseeable future.

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!
