GN Version 5.0

By all accounts, Shovel Knight has been a huge success. The first game for Yacht Club managed to sell millions right out of the gate, and continues to sell to this very day. The game came to Wii U and 3DS first, but eventually made its way to Switch as well. Wondering how the Switch version did? Yacht Club Games' Sean Velasco and David D'Angelo shared some info in a Dtoid interview.

The duo said Switch currently accounts for 25% of total sales on all platforms, which they labeled as a 'wild' figure. It definitely is, considering how much later the game came to Switch than other platforms!
