Hollow Knight

Looking forward to Hollow Knight? Unfortunately, you will have to wait a little bit longer before being able to play it on Nintendo Switch. Earlier this week, Team Cherry announced that the game was now slated for an Early 2018 release.

Wondering what’s taking them so long? Here’s the answer:

Honestly, it’s just that as first-time developers we built the game in some strange, unoptimised ways and to get things running smoothly and consistently we need to sweep back through and rewrite or fix bits and pieces. It’s an involved process, but we’ve learnt a lot for the next project and it’s a big relief to get everything cleaned up nicely!

Now that they’re done with other platforms, they can fully focus on the Nintendo Switch version. Hopefully, there will be no further delays!

  • Trüberbrook (by btf), a Sci-Fi-Mystery Adventure Game with handmade scenery for the Nintendo Switch. The developers need 80 000€ for their project, and… the campaign is already successful, with 84 067€ pledged within the first day.

Nintendo Switch demos

As months go by, Nintendo keeps on adding new features to the Nintendo Switch of the Nintendo eShop. This week, the company added a pretty useful option: the ability to search for games with demos. Head over the Search tab of the Nintendo eShop, and click on “Games with demo” button just below the search field. Alternatively, you can check the relevant boxes in the left corner of the screen.

Naturally, even with this feature, we’re still going to keep the Nintendo Switch demos page up to date… in fact, this new feature will make our job easier!
