Kamiko and VOEZ
Yesterday, during the latest Flyhigh Express, Flyhigh Works shared updated sales figures for two of the Nintendo Switch games they published:
- Kamiko: 160 000 units (+10 000 since the last update, in October)
- VOEZ: 50 000 units (+5 000 units since the last update, also in October)
It looks like the sales for those two games are quite steady, which is a good thing, what with the crazy amount of weekly releases on the Nintendo eShop of the Nintendo Switch!

During that same Flyhigh Express livestream, it was announced that Ninja Smasher (released on Nintendo 3DS earlier this year) was headed to the Nintendo Switch. It will not be a straight port, as this version will feature new elements. The game is currently in development, but does not have a release date. It’s already been added to the Upcoming Games page, though!

Nintendo eShop Highlights
Here’s the latest Nintendo eShop Highlights video from Nintendo of Europe:
Nintendo and Indies
Earlier this week, Game Informer published a special feature about Nintendo’s “new” approach to indie developers. It doesn’t reveal anything really new, but it does feature a few quotes from Damon Baker.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Developers could certainly go to any of our competitors and have a much larger install base to work with. The reason why they’re really interested in working with us is because of some of the features and functionality [of Switch], but it’s also because we’ve created a framework that is much easier for these developers to bring their content over.”
