Reggie on why indie games sell best on Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Reggie

The Nintendo Switch is a popular platform for games, but indies in particular. We’ve seen a slew of independent titles sell disproportionately well on Switch compared to other consoles. Nintendo has taken notice of this trend and attributes it to the ‘environment they’re creating,” according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.

In the end I believe the reason that the independent developer is saying that their games are selling best Switch is because of, in total, that environment we’re creating,” said Fils-Aime. “Consumers are highly engaged. Consumers are looking for this content. And the activity that we’re doing and will continue to do to help consumers find this great content.”

The hybrid system boasts a diverse bunch of truly great indies, from Celeste, the recent Hollow Knight, to even classics like Super Meat Boy.
