Monster Boy

Last week, publisher FDG Entertainment held a sale for Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom to celebrate the game's first anniversary. It slashed the usual price of $39.99 / £34.99 in half for the first time ever.

It looks like it was well worth it as well. According to an update on Twitter, FDG said the game sold more copies on Switch during the sale period than the entire five months before that.

This isn't necessarily the first time Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom has enjoyed success on Nintendo's hybrid platform. At the start of this year, FDG described Switch sales as being in "another universe" and said the number of copies sold on the platform was eight times the amount of combined sales on other platforms.
