Yet another Wii U game getting canned in favor of moving to the Switch. This time it’s indie dev Team Cherry with their very promising kickstarted title Hollow Knight. The developers say that “That’s not a step we’ve taken lightly” and that “We’re aiming to release the Switch version of Hollow Knight not too long after the platform’s launch.”
Full press release after the break:
We’ve had a long conversation with Nintendo and given their recent reveals, we can now announce: Hollow Knight is making the switch to Nintendo’s new portable/home/hybrid platform!That’s both sad and happy news for us. Though we can confirm the Switch as a release platform, we also have to confirm that Hollow Knight will no longer make its way to the Wii U. That’s not a step we’ve taken lightly. Our Wii U release has recently been hampered by several technical challenges and though we’d love to see Hollow Knight on our favourite console, we feel the quality difference would end up such that Wii U players will be experiencing a lesser version of the game.We’re aiming to release the Switch version of Hollow Knight not too long after the platform’s launch.
