This is not the first time a game’s Switch version has outsold its Steam version. Castle Pixel’s Blossom Tales, another retro-inspired title famously sold twice its Steam lifetime sales on its launch day, and going on to make 20 times as much over the next five months. Its no wonder the Switch is considered one of the best platforms for indies even after almost three years on the market.
Venture Kid will arrive on Switch May 2 2019 in the west, and May 9 2019 in Japan.
