The Nintendo Switch is a bigger success than anyone had anticipated, even Nintendo (which is why they had to increase production not once but twice).

And developers are paying attention to the continued success of the console: more and more are racing to make Switch games and join the club.

According to a developer survey, far more developers are interested in making Switch games now than a year ago.

A GDC poll of 4,000 developers last year found that just 3 percent planned to make games for the Switch. Those numbers are very different this year.

This year, 12 percent are already making games for the Switch, and 15 percent plan on making games for the console in the future.

What’s even more interesting is that those who have made games for the Switch, 28 percent said that their game sold better on the Switch than other platforms, 26 percent said they games sold about the same.

For the record, 33 percent of developers said that this didn’t apply to them, so in all, about 75% of developers’ games on the Switch are either selling better than on other platforms, or about the same.

To date, the Nintendo Switch has sold over 10 million units worldwide.
