Switch Games Shown in Best Sellers List is Determined by Two Weeks of Sales


Get ready for another Switch eShop related article because this one’s ready for you!

 

Earlier this week, after a round of maintenance, a new category was added to the eShop. For Europe the new category is called Charts, whereas for the likes of America, it’s Best Sellers. Well when this new addition was made, Switch owners now had the ability to see which of the Top 15 games have been selling well in their region, but other than that, nothing was really said about it, until a Nintendo Switch News item was shared.

 

According to the little news piece, games that are shown in the charts are not games that have sold well in the last week, but in the last two weeks, which at first doesn’t seem much of a difference but it does if you take into account that a game that could sell terrible one week and then fantastically the week after, could in fact take the top place.

 

Regardless though, it is a little interesting Switch tidbit we didn’t know before and if you feel like seeing the news item for yourself, we have it right here:

Ankama Reveals Abraca: Imagic Games for Nintendo Switch!


And just like that, another game has been added to the Switch’s line-up for May 2017!

If you have never played or heard of Abraca: Imagic Games is a competitive four player platformer by Ankama, which places one player “in the shoes of the hero – a Prince or Princess – and the other three players as the bad guys.” When playing as the bad guys, the role is to make your way through each levels as quickly as you possibly can, whilst defeating enemies and evading traps before having to do battle against a gigantic boss. On the other side of the coin though, the Prince/Princess. But that’s not all, because every time a level is completed, a new Hero is chosen (Prince/Princess), and the previous one now becomes a bad guy, as the cycle starts all over again.

Also since the can be played with one player with their eyes on the TV while the bad guys keep their eyes peeled on the screens of their individual connected Switch, Abraca is without a doubt a game that is perfect for the new Nintendo platform and just in case words aren’t enough, we’ve also got a trailer of the game in action for you!

And remember, if you love what you saw, Abraca: Imagic Games comes to Switch eShop in May 2017, so there is plenty of time to gather up friends who are also interested in the title and procure the required funds.

Best Sellers List Gets added to the Nintendo Switch eShop


And it’s about time to!

 

As far as the eShop on Nintendo Switch goes, it is very bare bones right now. There are hardly any games. Recent Releases only shows 24 of the most recently released games, so if you’re looking for a game that came out at launch, you’re required to search for it, but there wasn’t even a Best Seller’s section. Until now at least. Continue reading Best Sellers List Gets added to the Nintendo Switch eShop
