Gaming site Nintendo has announced its roundup of the most-downloaded Switch eShop games of August 2020. Since its launch of Animal Crossing: New Horizons back in March, Nintendo regularly tallies the monthly top spot. Last month, the same was displaced by the new release Paper Mario: The Origami King. However, in August 2020, it is a much older release that took the top spot.

Moving three places from July, the evergreen Minecraft became the most-downloaded game on the Switch eShop in August 2020. There’s also a new entry standing at number 3 titled Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered Edition and indie release Spiritfarer that stands at impressive debut 4.
