Nintendo reveals the best-selling Nindies on the Switch
It’s all about the Nindies this week at Nintendo. As if last night’s Nindies Showcase wasn’t enough, Nintendo also hosted a Nindies Panel at this year’s GDC.
Amongst talk of its booming success in the digital market (and the promise of some eShop improvements), Nintendo also dropped a bit of very interesting info — it listed the top ten best-selling indie titles on the Switch. The list isn’t broken down into actual sales numbers, but it does mention that it’s based on global life-to-date sales, so it does give us a pretty good idea of what makes Switch players all around the world tick.
The top ten selling Nindies on Switch in no particular order are as follows:
- SteamWorld Dig 2
- Stardew Valley
- Fast RMX
- Golf Story
- Enter the Gungeon
- Overcooked: Special Edition
- NBA Playgrounds
- Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove
Curiously, we expected to see Rocket League on the list but it is totally absent; we’re not sure if this is because it didn’t sell as much as the others or if Nintendo doesn’t consider Psyonix indie enough, but for now, let’s just give a huge kudos to those who did make it.
