The relationship between Nintendo and indie developers seems to be getting stronger by the day. We’ve seen characters such as Shovel Knight represented as an assist trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and now the developer behind Crypt of the NecroDancer is working on a special Zelda cross-over known as Cadence of Hyrule.
In celebration of indies on the Switch, Nintendo has once again shared a list of the best-selling indie games to-date on the platform at the 2019 Game Developers Conference. Although no sale figures have been provided, it’s still interesting to see the most popular games (in no particular order):
Some of the games that have dropped out of the list include Kamiko, Fast RMX, SteamWorld Dig 2, and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. The new entries on the above list include Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2, Undertale, Dead Cells and Graceful Explosion Machine.
How many of the games on this list do you own? Are you surprised about any them? Tell us below.
