Team Cherry's Hollow Knight was the best-selling game on the Nintendo European eShop in August.
The Nintendo Switch News channel has revealed the 15 best-selling eShop games for the last month, based on the number of downloads earned in European regions.
Hollow Knight topped the chart for August, likely thanks to a couple of factors. A recent sale cut the game’s price by 34 per cent. A fourth free content pack, Godmaster, was also released around the same period.
Other indie action titles saw success in the European chart this month, with Dead Cells 2 following Hollow Knight in second spot. Developer Sebastien Benard providing a post-mortem at this year’s Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki (September 11th to 12th).
Team Cherry’s side-scrolling hack n’ slash Hollow Knight was first released in February 2017. But a release on Switch this summer gave Hollow Knight a second-win, making up a fifth of the game’s 1.25 million total sales.
