Possible Physical Switch Edition of Hollow Knight "Looking Promising"

The critically acclaimed indie game may receive a physical edition alongside its digital Nintendo Switch Release.

In a recent update on Hollow Knight's Kickstarter page, developer Team Cherry has announced that while they're not able to confirm anything yet regarding a physical release of the game for the Nintendo Switch, they have been looking into making it happen -- and that "things are looking promising."

On June 7th, it had been announced that the Nintendo Switch version of Hollow Knight is feature complete, and all that's left is testing and optimization. It was also revealed that the Nintendo Switch version will include the recently released Hidden Dreams content pack.

Hollow Knight is a 2D indie platformer featuring hand-drawn artwork. It stars a tiny insect warrior who arrives in the town of Dirtmouth and ventures into the mysterious Hallownest to lift the curse that afflicts the town.

The Kickstarter campaign for Hollow Knight started on November 18 ,2014 and reached its initial funding goal just a month later. Since then, the campaign has been able to fund four of its eight known stretch goals.

Hollow Knight was released for PC on February 24, 2017. A second playable character, known as Hornet, was recently announced alongside three content packs.

Hollow Knight is currently available on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux, and will be released for Nintendo Switch at an unspecified date later this year.
