Hollow Knight's Switch port pushed back to 2018

Cult title will miss 2017 release date

Speaking on their blog, indie studio Team Cherry have reluctantly announced that the Switch port for critically-acclaimed platform adventure, Hollow Knight, will not meet its intended 2017 release date.

Being honest, the studio simply stated that it is taking longer than expected for them to translate the coding and optimise the title for release on the Nintendo console, but that they are working hard on the title and are pleased with how the release is shaping up so far.

Team Cherry also made mention of the fact that any tweaks and optimisations made for the port will be retroactively added to the Metroidvania's PC release, which launched to high praise in February of this year. The studio adds that once the Switch port is complete, they hope to work on bringing the gloomy-cute adventure to other consoles.

Hollow Knight is available now on PC.
