Lumines Remastered is currently out on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam. Yet it’s Nintendo’s console where the game has sold the best.

Enhance Games’ Tetsuya Mizuguchi stopped by a recent episode of The Game Informer Show where he answered a ton of rapid-fire questions. When asked what system Lumines Remastered is selling the best on, Mizuguchi said it’s the Switch. As a follow up, Game Informer asked if it’s Switch by a mile. Mark MacDonald, who is working with Mizuguchi, simply said “yes”.

Lumines Remastered launched on Switch at the end of June and can be found on the eShop.

At PAX Aus 2018, a special panel was held in which four different indies discussed bringing their games to Switch and more. Ash Ringrose from SMG Studio, Henrik Pettersson from The Voxel Agents, League of Geeks’ Matthew Rowland, and Harmonious Games’ Joe Park were in attendance.

For almost two years now, we’ve heard from a number of indies about how well their games sold on Switch. This is something that was brought up during the panel as well, with most of the developers sharing information and data about their eShop performance.
