As Nintendo continues to further its efforts to support its Nindies program via avenues like the Nindies News Channel and Nindies Directs, certain indie titles continue to enjoy unique success on the platform. In particular, five indies graced the EU Nintendo Switch eshop top 10 download chart for August, with three in the top spots.
Two Metroidvanias led the charts last month, with Team Cherry's Hollow Knight in the top spot and Motion Twin's Dead Cells in second. Hollow Knight's continued surge should be no surprise after the game sold 250,000 copies in the first two weeks after launch, seeing a resurgence in popularity due to the Switch launch after its PC release last year.
Dead Cells' popularity on Switch has dwarfed interest on other platforms, apparently, with Destructoid reporting that the game is selling four copies on Switch for every one on PS4 (broadly, not just in the EU) - making it seem as though the studio's marketing strategy is paying off.
Below are the top ten selling games on the EU Nintendo Switch eshop for the month of August:
