Hollow Knight

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:

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”.

Below are a few excerpts from the discussion:

As promised, Team Cherry has offered an update on the Switch version of Hollow Knight. Unfortunately though, it sounds like the game still has quite a long way to go.

Hollow Knight is “looking and playing great” on Switch, but the team still has “some stuff to iron out.” Team Cherry isn’t ready to announce an updated release window just yet.
