Nintendo’s audience has grown up on a diet of high quality brawling games- most notably, the Super Smash Bros. series. In the absence of a proper Smash game for the Switch so far, it should come as no surprise to anyone that indie brawling game Brawlout is doing well on Nintendo’s hybrid platform so far.
How well? Well, according to a new tweet posted by the developer, the game has already crossed 50,000 players on the Nintendo Switch, in just two weeks. This is in spite of a number of issues that plagued the game’s launch, which included some network errors- problems which, they confirmed, they are working on addressing as soon as possible.
Brawlout, then, becomes the latest in a long line of indie games that have found themselves a successful home and receptive audience on Nintendo’s platform. Now to see whether the game keeps growing on from here, especially with Smash Bros. likely coming to the Switch soon.
