In a blog update for the forthcoming Hidden Dreams free DLC, Team Cherry also took the time to give a progress update on the Hollow Knight Switch port of their game of the year contender:
Quick Update: Switch version is now feature complete! Prep your Joycons (Or your Pro Controller, if you prefer). From now till Hollow Knight’s (unspecified) Switch launch day it’s all about testing and optimisation, all the time. That’s still a task mind you! But things are really rolling now!
And though it may go without saying, Hidden Dreams will of course be included with the Switch version at launch!
All we have to do now is sit back and wait. Here’s what’s included in the Hidden Dreams DLC:
- 2 New Bosses – Leap into battle with the mightiest of foes! These epic duels will test even the most skilled of players. Each fight grants rewards to the victor, though note: Engaging with these imposing bosses is entirely optional! Who are these enigmatic, impossible-to-discern figures? We’re not telling! It’s up to you to find out this July!
- 2 New Music Tracks – Epic battles need epic music and Chris’s been preparing just that, with new stirring boss themes for each encounter! He’s gone all out on these ones!
- New Upgrade: Dream Gate – Discover a whole new method of traversing Hallownest! Slice through the Veil and travel in an instant from one corner of the kingdom to another.
- A New Stag Station Uncovered – Hallownest’s stags once travelled the breadth of the kingdom but with the departure of the King, one special station was walled away, hidden from bugs and forgotten by stags, until now!
Hollow Knight: Hidden Dreams content is accessible at any point in the game, whether starting fresh or scouring for completion. We’ll be announcing the exact release date as we get close.
