We heard last week that Hollow Knight’s Switch version could take up to a year to release. Perhaps in response to that, developer Team Cherry is now bringing in an additional team to help bring the game to Nintendo’s console.

Shark Jump Studios will be assisting with Hollow Knight’s Switch development. Doing so will allow for the title to hit Switch in a more reasonable time period.

Team Cherry wrote in a blog post:

This is the next big thing for Team Cherry. We’re working our hardest to get the game ready for Nintendo’s sleek new console. But as hard as we work, Team Cherry is only two people (Plus Leth!) so we’ve taken a big step to speed things up!

Please welcome Shark Jump Studios. They’re an Adelaide based coding/development team, and we’ve brought them on-board specifically to help us get Hollow Knight’s Switch version tested, polished and ready for it’s console debut. Between the two teams, expect Hollow Knight to land on Switch in a not crazy (though still unspecified!) period of time.


A Switch version of Hover: Revolt of Gamers, Fusty Games’ upcoming action-adventure title, was confirmed earlier in the year. The project is now wrapping up with the Steam release planned for the end of May.

When Hover: Revolt of Gamers is ready on other platforms, it’ll be receiving a physical release. That may include Switch as well.

When a fan asked about a physical version for consoles, the team said on Twitter:

Switch is a console, so hopefully the system will be included with any physical release plans. We’ll let you know if we hear anything official.


A few weeks back we reported on Dusty Raging Fist as a game for Switch thanks to a listing on the official BitSummit website. However, the information was not accurate enough for us to take it as fact.

Today, the official Twitter account for Dusty Raging Fist has stated that the game is coming for Switch, so this time it is a definitive confirmation. They will be showing it first at BitSummit, but we don’t have a release date yet.

You can read the overview of the game meanwhile:

“When the occurence of the dark moons began, Dusty, Darg and Kitsune knew that something is amiss. An ancient evil from a faraway land threatens the peace of Double Bill Town. Prompted by a visit from the helpless Elijah, the trio set off to seek the Iron Knight’s help. Along the way, they have to battle rogue villains, encounter ancient powers and face the battle of their lives.

– Co-op Play of up to 3 Players
– Dynamic Combat System
– 3 playable beat’em up characters, and 2 combat support characters.
– Utilize your combat support characters (Artillery & Sniper) to aid you in combat.
– Collect, utilize and summon powerful Guardians and Elemental Powers.
– Stylistic 2D artwork and animation.
– Crazy boss fights to make your day.”


Back in January, Team Cherry announced that the Wii U version of Hollow Knight had been scrapped. In its place is a new release on Switch, which the team aimed to have ready “not too long after the platform’s launch.”

Unfortunately, it may take significantly longer than expected for Hollow Knight to reach Switch. Matt Griffin, who is handling PR, marketing, testing and translation for the game, said last month that the Switch port “will take time.” Griffin estimated that the process will require six to twelve months.

Graphite Lab’s last update on the Wii U version of Hive Jump was at the end of 2016. The team mentioned that the game would be ready by early next year. We’re almost halfway into 2017, but the Wii U version still isn’t finished.

The good news is that Graphite Lab is still hard at work on finishing up its project for Nintendo’s older console. Right now several issues are being cleared up. Once that’s done, it can hopefully be resubmitted to Nintendo and approved for release.

Graphic Lab shared the following regarding the status of Hive Jump on Wii U:

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment has now been dated for PAL regions on Wii U. It’s set to launch on May 11 in both Europe and Australia. The 3DS version is still without a date, but it shouldn’t be too far behind.

For those in North America, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is already out now on Wii U and 3DS. The Switch version is also available worldwide.

Here’s an overview:
