In an interview with Nintendo Everything, Liquid Bit CEO Matt Tesch commented on sales of Killer Queen Black.

Tesch told us that sales “have been great” on Switch. The game’s success there has also resulted on Nintendo’s console maintaining the “primary player base”.

Tesch’s full words:

Hello, kids and squids! We apologize for the late episode this week, but we’ve got a really great one. This week on NEP, we’re joined by Matt Tesch from Liquid Bit of Killer Queen Black fame. He’s talking with us about their fascinating history on how this small arcade cabinet came to be an online competitive co-op phenomenon. It’s a really inspiring story that we’re excited to share with you. In addition, Galen and Oni Dino cover Nintendo’s controversial lawsuit win against Germany and Norway regarding the inability to cancel eShop pre-orders. Plus, Galen takes any shred of Mega Man Battle Network news he can get.
