Golf Story, the game from two-man development team Sidebar Games, has had a blistering launch week on Nintendo Switch, ending up top of the US eShop charts and debuting at number two in the UK.

Even though the indie game had quite a stealthy release, word of mouth spread pretty fast and that obviously generated in a decent number of sales for the Australian studio. Golf Story beat out Steamworld Dig 2, Pokken Tournament DX and NBA 2K18 in the States, and bested Sonic Mania, Thimbleweed Park, and FIFA 18 in the UK.

Like Tin Cup before it, Golf Story features a former golfing great who's looking to make a comeback. There are side missions and minigames, as well as a number of nine-hole courses for you to perfect your game.

Golf Story is available now on Nintendo Switch.
