    1. This is why so many companies are trying to force on the whole “games as a service” instead of just making a titles with everything put into it

      Multiversus is free indee, but you can pay real money to unlock the characters/skins of the game.

  1. I know, how can a F2p game be “best selling”

    i completed my 1st playthrough of Digimon Survive. Very heavily story based game, pretty sure it has 4 possible endings depending on your dialogue options and party member affinity. Happy it has NG+ and most items and Digimon carry over including evolved Digimon. Didn’t encounter all Digimon in my 1st playthrough, i think certain Digimon only appear on certain ending routes and certain Digimon only evolve if you have high enough affinity.

    1. Season pass sales, then people spending money to auto complete the season pass since they see it as too much as a hassle to play non stop to unlock everything.

  2. Title confused me for a moment. I thought it was saying Multiversus was selling highest on Switch and I was wondereing how I didn’t realize it was on Switch.

  3. To me this game kind of looks like a soulless mishmash of every IP imaginable without having an identity of its own. Kind of similar to how Fortnite started out with a beautiful identity of what it was, with fantastic art direction and such, and now it has so many collaboration items that it’s horrendous to play. You’ll have a stormtrooper swing in on a spiderman web to blow up Goku and John Wick. It just seems to me like this kind of thing drains the identity from a game, and exists as an IP grab to sell DLC through peoples’ interest in specific characters from other series. Kudos to people who have fun with this game though, I just don’t think it’s a thing for me
