And Snipperclips has gotten 350K downloads
We know Zelda: Breath of the Wild is selling super well, but what about other Switch games?
Alongside a surprise New 2DS XL announcement, Nintendo also shared some more game sales figures in its financial results briefing. Looking at three notable games from the Switch’s launch lineup, 1-2-Switch is “on track to ship one million units very soon,” Super Bomberman R managed to ship “over 500,000 units” in March, and Snipperclips has secured 350,000 downloads worldwide.
The latter is especially interesting to hear. I love Snipperclips and I think it well represents the Switch as a system, but I wouldn’t have expected that many downloads for an eShop title. That said, it had high visibility on the storefront given how few other games were available around launch.
