Developer Team Cherry has announced that the Nintendo Switch port of Hollow Knight, its beautiful bug-themed Metroidvania, will now release early next year.
A Switch version of Hollow Knight was first announced all the way back in January, when Team Cherry revealed that the game’s planned Wii U port would no longer be happening. At the time, the developer said that the new Switch version of Hollow Knight would arrive “not too long after the platform’s launch”.
March came and went with no sign of Hollow Knight on Switch, but Team Cherry has continued to update fans on the port’s progress. In its latest news post, however, the developer dropped the bad news. “Despite our best efforts”, it said, “we’ve recently made the difficult decision to push HK’s Switch release to early 2018.”games
