Yet another indie developer is cancelling plans for Wii U in favor of a Switch version. Today, Team Cherry announced that Hollow Knight is no longer coming to Nintendo’s current console, but it will be on Switch instead.

Hollow Knight actually isn’t too far away from hitting Switch. The team intends to release it “not too long” after Switch launches.

Team Cherry wrote in a blog pospt:

“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.”

In an interview with Nintendo Life, The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup creator Chris Seaver of Gory Detail has stated that development of the Wii U version of the puzzle platformer has stopped for now. Instead, the focus lies on the PC version at the moment – however, as soon as Gory Detail get their hands on a Switch developer kit, they will work on porting the game to Nintendo’s newest system. Additionally, Seaver stated that a release of the 3DS version is “dependent on resources and time issues”.

Here are his statements in full:

“We’re looking to have everything done on the PC side by September or so, the Nintendo Switch side of things depends on when dev kits become available. As you can imagine there’s a lot of people wanting them and I can’t imagine little indies like us are too high on the list. We’ll see.

I’d pretty much back-burnered the Wii U in terms of dev for a while now because of the cost to develop on something that was increasingly seen as a dead end system. Along comes the Switch, hopefully reinvigorating Nintendo’s home console market. It all dovetails nicely. Switch is pretty much a defo, just not sure when. 3DS is dependent on resources and time issues but currently a yes. Wii U, nah.”

We have another round of news about Shovel Knight. First, Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will launch first on Switch during the system’s launch window for $24.99 and $9.99 respectively. That would indicate today’s earlier news of an April launch applies to Wii U and 3DS instead of Switch.

Specter of Torment and Shovel Knight co-op will be playable on Switch for the first time at PAX South later this month.

Yacht Club Games is also announcing today that Shovel Knight Sound Test Mode is on the way. It’ll come to all versions of the game as a free update.
