Just last week, Team Cherry – the Australian developer behind the recent eShop hit Hollow Knight – talked about how it "works" physical release happens. In the same Reddit AMA, the studio admitted that it was somewhat surprised how well the title was accepted and said it was more than happy with the recent sales on Nintendo's latest device.
Now, just a week later, the developer has provided a rough figure to support this statement, revealing IGN the iteration of the Switch, which sold over 250,000 copies within the first two weeks of its release. In an interview with Waypoint, Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime even mentioned that the game was "exceptionally good."
Based on this information, it appears that Hollow Knight was welcomed with open arms by Nintendo Switch owners. Tell us in the comments section if you were one of the many people who bought this title when it was published in the eShop earlier this month.
