Hollow Knight

It was unexpectedly announced yesterday that the physical version of Hollow Knight has been cancelled. We had only heard from Skybound at the time, but Team Cherry has issued its own response now as well.

Team Cherry said that pursuing the retail version “proved more work than we could reasonably manage.” While the company may explore a different way for this to happen in the future, it will probably “be in smaller quantities.”

Earlier this year, Team Cherry and Skybound Games announced a partnership to publish a physical version of Hollow Knight. Sadly, the deal has fallen through.

Skybound said on Twitter a short while ago that it is no longer working with Team Cherry on Hollow Knight. Team Cherry itself has not yet provided a statement.

It might be possible that Hollow Knight will be receiving a physical copy, but it won’t be with Skybound. We’ll keep you updated on any future developments.


Hollow Knight’s latest update has gone live on Switch. Team Cherry has issued version, which features a number of fixes.

The full patch notes are as follows:

Hollow Knight: Godmaster is now live on Switch. To get your hands on the latest content, simply update your game – it’s entirely free. Godmaster features new characters, quests, secrets, and more.

To celebrate the new content launch, Hollow Knight has gone on sale for the first time. It’s available for $9.90, down from the original $15 price point. The discount ends on August 27.

Hollow Knight is only available as a digital download at present. But next year, that’ll be changing thanks to a new partnership between Team Cherry and Skybound Games.

Announced today, Hollow Knight will have a physical version on Switch in Spring 2019. Skybound Games will be distributing the title.

With a week to go until the arrival of Hollow Knight’s next free content pack, developer Team Cherry has changed the name. It’ll now be called Hollow Knight: Godmaster. Previously, the DLC was known as Gods & Glory.

You’ll be able to get your hands on the new content starting August 23.

Team Cherry explained the name change on its official website:

Team Cherry has set a release date for Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory, the game’s final free content pack. The DLC arrives on August 23.

Gods & Glory is said to be “the largest pack yet”. It has new bosses, new music, new NPCs, and new quests. “The final chapter for the knight is turning into the celebration we hoped it would be,” Team Cherry says.

Here’s a release date trailer for Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory:

A new patch is being pushed out for Switch players, mostly for bug fixes. In addition to the patch notes, it has been confirmed that controller rebinding will be added to the Switch version via the Gods & Glory Content Pack. The fixes are as follows:

Hollow Knight has done exceptionally well on Switch thus far. In its first two weeks, the game has sold over 250,000 copies on Nintendo’s console. Team Cherry confirmed the news to IGN.

Since its release, Hollow Knight has been at the top of the eShop charts. Team Cherry has stated that the team is working towards a physical version.


After a fairly long wait, Hollow Knight was dropped onto the Switch eShop next week. If you prefer having a game physically though, it sounds like a new option will soon be available to you.

Team Cherry said in a Reddit AMA that the company is working to make a physical version happen as we speak. The developer hopes to have some news “very soon”.
