It’s no surprise to see Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition holding firm in the top spot, but congrats are in order to the newly released Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers and strategy RPG Disgaea 5 Complete for appearing on (just about) every region’s list during their debut week.

Despite its lukewarm reception — currently sitting at a 67 on Metacritic — the latest iteration of the 26-year-old Street Fighter II managed to crack the top five across all five regions. Our own Paul Murphy awarded the fighter a 3.5/5, with its premium price as the primary sore spot (along with the JoyCon’s fragmented d-pad not being fighter-friendly). Paul called its presentation “top notch,” but wasn’t too fond of the Switch exclusive buddy fight concept and Way of the Hado mode, which he called “rubbish” and “a complete mess.”

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!
