Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom Sells Drastically Better on Switch at an 8:1 Ratio Compared to Other Platforms
FDG Entertainment has revealed that Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom is selling far better on Switch by comparison to its PS4 and Xbox One counterparts.
Begging for games to come to Switch has become somewhat trite since Nintendo’s handheld and console hybrid released back in 2017. That said, it seems like Switch owners are at least putting their money where their mouth is when it comes to releases they’ve been asking for.
The most recent example of this deals with Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom, which released early last month on Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Despite releasing across the board for all major console platforms, publisher FDG Entertainment announced today that the sales on Switch are vastly higher than every other platform.
According to FDG Entertainment, Switch sales for Monster Boy are selling at an 8:1 ratio when compared to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. Not only is this drastically impressive and shows the power of indie games on the platform, but FDG also said it has now become the company’s “most profitable console business ever.”
This is great to hear not only for FDG Entertainment and Game Atelier, but essentially proves that if you’re an indie developer, you should probably consider bringing your game to this platform. Hopefully, Monster Boy continues to see this success when it releases on PC later this year.
Nintendo Switch continues to amaze us. Not only does it bring so much joy with its original games, it’s also the most profitable console business ever for us. It’s another universe in regards of sales numbers. #MonsterBoyGame ratio is 8:1 #NintendoSwitch vs everything else. 🙌🎉 pic.twitter.com/q1VKlQkevz
