Hollow Knight dev brings in Shark Jump Studios to help release the game on Switch
Posted on May 17, 2017 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
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.
