Publisher Merge Games and developer Laser Dog have provided a release date for the Switch version of HoPiKo. It’ll be out digitally on January 10, the two companies announced.

– Fast and brutal twitch-based gameplay.
– Utilize the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-cons and touch screen for precision jumps.
– Awesome chiptune soundtrack written and composed on authentic hardware.
