Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition and NBA Playgrounds continue to dominate the digital charts this week, keeping Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in the #3 slot across all five regions. No surprises there. We’re likely to see Minecraft in the top slot for quite a while, as it’s insanely popular wherever it releases, but I expect NBA Playgrounds’ popularity to start dipping after the 2017 NBA season ends here soon.

Congrats are in order this week to developer DROOL’s newly released rhythm horror game Thumper, which appears on all five bestseller lists shortly after its debut. Its bizarre imagery and otherworldly soundtrack have clearly won the hearts of Switch fans across the globe. Stay tuned for our official review of Thumper here at Switch Player!

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!

Did your favorite Switch titles make the cut this week?
