Hat In Time developer confirms time travel platformer won’t jump on Switch


We’re so used to hearing about developers and publishers scrambling to bring their games to Nintendo Switch, we often get a little taken aback when we hear which ones definitely won’t. A hat in time – which released on PC, Mac, PS4, and Xbox One late last year – is one such title with its developer confirming the news on Twitter this weekend.

This is an odd situation, as a Wii U port was listed as part of the highly successful Kickstarter campaign (it doubled its target in less than a few days), but developer Gears For Breakfast has been very silent on that front. . He eventually received Switch development kits, but said he had “NO PLANS for additional versions until we make an official announcement.”

It’s sad to hear a game so heavily influenced by Nintendo in its open-world game design (it even has a melody of Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope and an N64 box-shaped Kickstarter award), but many of us probably wouldn’t even begin to figure out what it would take to port a game that wasn’t built without a Switch in mind. Still, sad face.

Do you think A Hat In Time would have made a good choice for Nintendo Switch? Or will Switch’s still solid release schedule mean we barely notice it? Let us know…
