Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers dethroning Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition in both the United States and Australia is quite the surprise, particularly with the former’s lukewarm critical reception and arguably high price of entry. I’ll admit that I’m a little excited by this, purely because I finally get to use a new featured image that isn’t Minecraft related.

Kudos to Saber Interactive, as NBA Playgrounds continues to make a strong showing alongside the (currently one-sided) NBA finals. Hopefully, the game proves successful and consumers are not only treated to continued support but a possible sequel that refines the NBA Jam-like’s shortcomings.

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t insanely jealous of Japan’s Seiken Densetsu Collection not only charting, but merely existing. Here’s hoping an English translation eventually sees the light of day.

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!
