As expected Pokemon features on top, as does Monster Hunter and Animal Crossing. I’d have thought some Mario titles may have been higher in the list though, as well as Super Smash Bros. When looking at the top titles, there is plenty of competition for top place from some of the most popular games released on the handheld games console.
