Hollow Knight now has a second team to help speed up the Switch port


It should be out in a 'not crazy' amount of time

I really like the idea of playing a metroidvania game like Hollow Knight on Nintendo Switch, even if there's a significant wait involved. Some good news on that front: Team Cherry has "taken a big step to speed things up" by working with another team to expedite the porting process.

"Please welcome Shark Jump Studios," reads Team Cherry's blog post. "They're an Adelaide based coding/development team, and we've brought them on-board specifically to help us get Hollow Knight's Switch version tested, polished and ready for its console debut. Between the two teams, expect Hollow Knight to land on Switch in a not crazy (though still unspecified!) period of time."

I'll be right here waiting! Anyone else?
