After a few weeks of being on the Nintendo Switch, X.D. Network Inc. announced that their platformer ICEY reached the top of the Japanese Switch games sales chart.
Brandy Wu, Director of business, development and indie game publishing for X.D. Network Inc. said in a press release that…
“We were pleased, surprised but also very excited to see ICEY top the Japan charts. We are now also hoping it fares well around the rest of the world. We are starting to build our profile now in the west and hope gamers will check out ICEY and enjoy the same experiences that their fellow gamers in Japan are currently experiencing. We have had some great reviews and feedback and hope this will continue”
