LittleBigPlanet 3 developer Sumo Digital today announced that its physics platformer Snake Pass has secured the top spot in the first ever European Nintendo eShop chart, topping sales in United Kingdom, France, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands.
Starring Noodle the Snake and Doodle the Hummingbird as the pair embark on a journey to save the day after a mysterious intruder threatens the tranquillity of their home, Snake Pass managed to slither its way past The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Snipperclips – Cut it out, together! and Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove to become the first European Nintendo eShop number one.
“When I first had the idea for Snake Pass, I had no clue where the game would take me,” said Seb Liese, creator of Snake Pass. “But here we are today, having secured the number one spot on the Nintendo eShop chart in Europe. It’s been such a pleasure to hear about everyone enjoying the game.”
“I’m hugely proud of the studio and I know that everyone at Sumo is thrilled that the game has resonated with players to such a degree,” said Paul Porter, COO of Sumo Digital. “We always knew Snake Pass was a great concept, but we’ve been totally surprised by the scale of positive reaction to the game. To be the first ever number one on the Nintendo eShop is a piece of hiss-tory I can get behind.”
Snake Pass is available now on Nintendo Switch via the eShop, Xbox One, PS4 and PC via Steam or the Windows Store.
