Team up

Nintendo is keener than ever to work with indie developers these days, and it would seem that the feeling is mutual because the Switch is proving to be a real money-spinner when it comes to downloadable delights.

In an interview with Gamasutra, Lizardcube's Omar Cornut revealed that the Switch version of Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap sold more copies "than the three other platforms we released on combined."

Given the massive total install base of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, that's quite an amazing achievement, and hints that certain types of indie titles really have found their natural home on Switch.

Also speaking in the same interview, Frozenbyte revealed that Has-Been Heroes has performed very well on the eShop, while David Jimenez claimed that the Switch announcement trailer for Dimension Drive racked up almost the same amount of views in just two days as its Early Access trailer had done in six whole months.

It would seem that indies can't get enough of Nintendo's machine at the moment - and it's great to see them thriving on the platform.
