It's no secret that indie games are thriving on the Switch, and it looks like Stardew Valley was the pick of the bunch last year.
The cute farming sim was the most-downloaded Nintendo Switch title in 2017, despite only launching in October.
Stardew's place at the top of the pile was confirmed after Nintendo published two tables showing which titles have pulled in the most downloads since the console launched on March 3, 2017.
Stardew took the global crown, beating out the likes of Rocket League and Sonic Mania, while Mojang's blocky build-em-up Minecraft secured the top spot in Japan.
Unfortunately, Nintendo didn't share any actual sales figures, and it's also worth noting that the worldwide list only feature games that have been released in Japan. Those that haven't been localized, like Golf Story, weren't included.
