2021 has been a massive year for the console, with many around the world still spending most of their time at home with it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. After an incredibly successful release for Animal Crossing: New Horizons, back in 2020, the Japanese gaming giant followed it up with a few big titles this past year too, including Monster Hunter Rise, Metroid Dread, and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Of course, aside from AAA games from large publishers and developers, one of the most beloved aspects of the Switch is its access to smaller indie titles that come out to surprise you every now and then, and below are the top 15 best-selling indie games for the Switch in 2021:
