Fox n Forests is closing in on nearly two months since its initial release. To see how the game is performing thus far, Destructoid caught up with director Rupert Ochsner for an update.

Ochsner stated that “Nintendo Switch is our strongest platform to date.” He also said that, currently, Switch has a 3:1 ratio of sales compared to PC, and a 4:1 ratio against PS4. Xbox One data is not yet available.

Bonus Level Entertainment had no issues in making the game for Switch. Unity was used here, and “all platforms were more or less similar in terms of challenges and workload.”

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy reached new formats last week. Interestingly, it’s the fastest selling Switch game released this year. The £30 price tag may play a factor in that.

The Xbox One and Switch versions of Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy came in at first and second on the UK charts this week. However, the Switch edition only sold 250 fewer copies.

We have a couple of other tidbits regarding the latest UK sales as well. Mario Tennis Aces’ sales dipped by 53%, though GamesIndustry says that’s “decent performance for a game in its second week on shelves.” Harvest Moon: A Light of Hope, which debuted in the UK just a few days ago, had 78% of its sales on Switch in comparison to 22% on the PlayStation 4.

Thanks to Arison for the tip.
