The Nintendo Switch has been a wonderful home for Indie Games of all shapes and sizes, and 2021 was no different. In celebration of the year that was, Nintendo has shared which of these creative and special indie games were the best-selling on its latest console.
Nintendo shared this list of best-selling Indie Games as part of its latest Indie World video presentation, and there are some truly wonderful choices, including Spelunky 2, Unpacking, Axiom Verge 2, Cyber Shadow, Tetris Effect: Connected, and many more.
The games themselves are not ranked, so we don’t know which of the 15 indie games sold the best, but it does give players around the world a glimpse as to what resonated the most with Switch owners in 2022.
The full list of the best-selling indie games of 2021 on Nintendo Switch are as follows;
- Axiom Verge 2
- Curse of the Dead Gods
- Cyber Shadow
- Doki Doki Literature Club
- Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights
- Islanders: Console Edition
- Road 96
- Slime Rancher: Plortable Edition
- Spelunky 2
- Stick Fight: The Game
- Subnautica + Subnautica: Below Zero
- Tetris Effect: Connected
We already have an idea of some of the games that will be up for this honor in 2022, as December 2021’s Indie World Showcase gave a preview of some of the experiences arriving on Switch next year, inclduing Sea of Stars, River City Girls, Omori, AfterLove EP, OlliOlli World, and more.
