FDG Entertainment

Earlier this week, FDG Entertainment announced that their two games on Nintendo Switch (Oceanhorn: Monster Uncarted Sea and Blossom Tales: The Sleeping King) have already sold over 100 000 units (combined, not each game separately). Another success story for the Nintendo Switch, and it most definitely will not be the last one!

Despite that title, it’s not exclusively about the increasing number of games releasing weekly on the Nintendo eShop, but also why developers choose to make games for the Nintendo Switch in the first place.
