It was only last week that Team Cherry - the Australian-based developer behind the recent eShop hit, Hollow Knight - spoke about how it was "working" on making a physical release happen. In the same Reddit AMA, the studio admitted it was somewhat surprised with how well the title had been received and stated it was more than satisfied with current sales on Nintendo’s latest device.

Now, exactly one week on, the developer has provided a rough figure to support this statement, revealing to IGN the Switch iteration sold over 250,000 copies within the first two weeks of its release. In a recent interview with Waypoint, Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime even mentioned how the game was doing "exceptionally well" sales-wise.

Based on this information, it appears Hollow Knight has been welcomed with open arms by Nintendo Switch owners. Tell us in the comments if you were one of the many people to purchase this title when it was released on the eShop earlier this month.
