Shovel Knight originally released 5 years ago, in 2014. Since then, it has received some DLC and has been released on many platforms. One of these platforms, the Nintendo Switch, was mentioned in an interview that Destructoid did with Yacht Club Games’ Sean Velasco and David D’Angelo. They said that “25% of total sales on all platforms” came from the Switch. Velasco and D’Angelo called this sales data “wild”.
