Monster Hunter Rise

Nintendo has released an updated list of its best-selling titles in Japan, this time covering May 2021.

Monster Hunter Rise tops the list once again, making it the most-downloaded game on the Japanese eShop for three months in a row. Rune Factory 5 jumps into second place in its opening month, after launching on 20th May.

Other new entries include Miitopia, which has landed in fifth spot, as well as Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir; interestingly, Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind didn’t make it into the top twenty.

Only paid downloads are included in the list, and any games that were on sale during the period are appropriately labelled (thanks, Perfectly Nintendo). Secondary numbers show last month’s chart placement:
