A Hat in Time Arrives on Nintendo Switch on October 18

A Hat in Time

Publisher Humble Bundle and developer Gears for Breakfast have announced that their cute, colorful 3D platformer A Hat in Time will launch on the Nintendo Switch on October 18.

The game will be available both digitally and in physical form on that day. If you buy the retail copy you will get the “Seal the Deal” downloadable content pack with it but if you buy the game digitally you will have to pay for it separately. Seal the Deal adds a brand new chapter to the game, a new challenge mode, cosmetic items, bonus levels, and photo filters. This will also be the first console version of the game that allows players to play it in local co-op play.

Currently A Hat in Time is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC while the Seal the Deal DLC is only available on PC. There is still no word on whether this extra content will ever come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

You can read more about the Switch version below and watch the first trailer via IGN.

A Hat in Time is a cute-as-heck 3D platformer featuring a little girl who stitches hats for wicked powers.

A Little Girl and Her Spaceship

In A Hat in Time you play as a tiny space-travelling girl with a big tophat. Her adventure is halted when all her fuel, the Time Pieces, is lost and scattered across a nearby planet. Hat Kid must now jump, fight and stitch new hats to make her way into every nook and cranny of this new world in order to restore her fuel and resume her journey. On her way, she’ll bump into the menacing Mafia of Cooks, the goofy birds of Dead Bird Studio, the spooky shadows of Subcon Forest, and more!

Murder on a Train! Parades! Trespassing in a Movie Studio?

Every mission in A Hat in Time is unique! At one moment you’ll be solving the Murder on the Owl Express by finding clues and interrogating the locals, the next moment you’ll be the band marshal in The Big Parade, or sneaking through the bird-run Dead Bird Studio!

Small Child, Giant Worlds

Jump freely around in five massive worlds with new adventures to discover around every corner! Just like any child, Hat Kid loves to climb and explore, no mountain is too big for her sense of adventure. She can do multiple jump moves, as well as climb walls, and swing over gaps!

Cute Hats, Magical Yarn and Snappy Badges

By finding and collecting rare magical yarn, Hat Kid can stitch new cute hats with a variety of abilities, including a witch hat that allows her to cook explosive concoctions, and a wooden ghost mask that allows her to peek into other dimensions. Hats can become even more powerful, by attaching badges that are found, sold and traded by the locals!
