We recently noted how well Snake Pass was doing in the UK download charts for Switch, but it seems the slithery physics platformer has established full European dominance. In a recent press release from Sumo Digital we learned that Snake Pass has secured the number one spot in various versions of the European Nintendo Switch eShop chart, topping sales in United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.

That's pretty impressive given competition from other download-only titles such as Snipperclips - Cut it out, together! and FAST RMX, also seeing off other recent arrivals as well.

Here's what Snake Pass creator Seb Liese had to say on this achievement:

When I first had the idea for Snake Pass, I had no clue where the game would take me. But here we are today, having secured the number one spot on the Nintendo eShop chart in Europe. It's been such a pleasure to hear about everyone enjoying the game.

Paul Porter, COO of Sumo Digital went on to say:

I'm hugely proud of the studio and I know that everyone at Sumo is thrilled that the game has resonated with players to such a degree. We always knew Snake Pass was a great concept, but we've been totally surprised by the scale of positive reaction to the game. To be the first ever number one on the Nintendo eShop is a piece of hiss-tory I can get behind.
