NeuroVoider on Switch reaches lifetime sales of the Steam version in just one month

Posted on October 10, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

As of late, many developers and publishers have detailed the successes they’ve experienced on the Switch eShop. A number of games have sold better on Nintendo’s console than other platforms.

Some have chalked this up to Switch being early on in its lifecycle. Others have said that it’s due to a lack of games. But as the eShop continues to get more and more crowded – especially over the last few weeks – those arguments may not hold up as well.

Enter NeuroVoider, the latest Switch eShop game with some positive news. On Twitter, Thomas Altenburger from Flying Oak said that the Switch version managed to sell the same amount as the Steam release in its lifetime. While NeuroVoider was only available on Switch for a month, the Steam version was around for a full year, along with six months in the Early Access program.

Here’s the full roundup of Altenburger’s tweets:

    But hey! Nintendo gamers only buy Nintendo games!

    • People also act like major/mainstream third parties hurt on the Switch. Sure, the ones that already hurting on the other consoles, or unless there’s a bias in the region (like the UK), but some games do better on the Switch. Surprise! Nintendo gamers like games! x’D

    SteamSpy reports 17,975 ± 3,954 owners for the Steam version. Not bad for one month on a new platform.

    Final reason that it could sell so well is because older games are not in the recent lists and people can almost only see the new or recent release on the list.

    but it might just sell well, because the Switch is the perfect system. For me the Eshop or Wii shopping channel was way better then Xbox360 shop (arcade i think it was) Indie games have a better place on Nintendo systems in my opinion

    • Way better, I love the Wii shop channel, my all time fav has to be the Wii U Eshop though, that place rocked

    I’m going to buy it soon.

    Picked it up myself, it’s a great game and has great co-op potential!!

  • That’s pretty amazing, that’s great for them!

    I am consistently pleased (and sometimes surprised) by the success of smaller games on the Switch, from indie, mobile and larger publishers. Disgaea 5, Voez, this, etc.

    Hopefully the Switch stays a home for these kind of games and more.

    So when can we stop doubting this system? It lends itself well to many kinds of games.
