Including a $40 physical release
A Hat in Time for Nintendo Switch has shifted from an eternal “coming soon” window to a real release date: October 18, 2019. It’s been a long journey to get to this point, but it should be worth the wait.
The Switch version of A Hat in Time will be available digitally and physically, and it’ll sport local co-op play alongside the paid Seal the Deal DLC, which adds the Arctic Cruise chapter. This DLC hasn’t made its way to PS4 or Xbox One yet – it’s been PC only – so that’s a good get for Switch players. If you end up going for the physical edition, you’ll get Seal the Deal as well, albeit as an eShop download.
I know some of you have been specifically waiting to play this cheerful 3D platformer on Switch – potential performance concerns aside, the two really should go hand-in-hand – so hang in there a little longer. You’re in the home stretch. This game is super cute and you’re probably going to dig it.
