Nintendo Opens Site for Most Downloaded 3DS Games in Japan

See which games were the most popular during the handheld console’s heyday.

Before Nintendo shuts down the eShop online store for its Nintendo 3DS platform, the company is sharing the most popular downloaded games in Japan. The game ranking site lists the most downloaded games for the last 10 years, beginning in 2011. The list includes games for the virtual console.

Unsurprisingly, Pokémon and Monster Hunter franchise releases did well, but North American gamers may be unfamiliar with The Battle Cats POP!, a tower defense game that stayed in the top three for six consecutive years. Developed by PONOS, The Battle Cats POP! is a tower defense game originally released for mobile devices and then later ported for the 3DS system. Nintendo released the English-language version on June 26, 2016.
