Nintendo reveals the cream of the indie crop on the Switch.
The Nintendo Switch is an indie games paradise. That’s why Nintendo can have 30 minute long streams for upcoming indie games, and why indie games, even ones associated with competing platforms, make the jump to it. Indie games in general sell extremely well on the Switch—they’re just perfect for it, you see.
But some obviously sell more than others, and at GDC, Nintendo revealed the top ten selling indie games on the Switch. The list, which is not given in order, includes some expected showings, such as Hollow Knight, Stardew Valley, Dead Cells, and Celeste, while some unexpected games also peek in, such as Graceful Explosion Machine and Golf Story. As Kotaku points out, Shovel Knight had sold 370,000 units on the Switch by last April—it is not on this list, so we can at least assume every single one of these games has sold more than that (some have probably breached a million units or more).
