Hollow Knight sweeps eShop charts

Hollow Knight sale and free expansion

Hollow Knight left the competition in the dust this week on the eShop. It took first place for both download-only games and for all games in general.

It makes sense that Hollow Knight is topping the charts right now. The game is currently on sale through August 27 to celebrate Godmaster, a new, free expansion. Godmaster adds new quests, boss battles, secrets to uncover, and romance options.

Even without the sale, Hollow Knight has earned strong sales numbers from the Switch for developer Team Cherry. Back in June, Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé told Waypoint that Hollow Knight has sold “exceptionally well” following its release at the close of Nintendo’s E3 2018 Direct presentation.

Following Hollow Knight on the list of all games is Dead Cells. The roguelike Metroidvania game has been in the news a lot lately after a now-former IGN editor plagiarized his review of the game. IGN subsequently fired him.
