Team Cherry working on physical release of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch


Groovy Ghoulies

After last week's successful release of cutesy goth platformer Hollow Knight on Nintendo Switch, developer Team Cherry have hinted that a physical release for the title may be headed to store shelves in the near future.

The Australian studio dropped the hint during an AMA session held on Reddit. One of the first questions put to the team was whether Hollow Knight would be getting a physical release on the Nintendo platform. "Yep, we're working on make it happen right now!" Team Cherry replied. "Hopefully have some news to share very soon!"

Hollow Knight originally launched on PC last year, where it quickly became a huge success, winning fans over with its unique art style and smart level design. The indie hit was ultimately nominated in multiple end of year awards. For anyone who is yet to check it out, Hollow Knight is currently available for a discounted price in the Steam Summer Sale.

Hollow Knight is available now on PC, Mac and Nintendo Switch.
