As a 3D platformer inspired by the likes of Super Mario 64 and Banjo-Kazooie, A Hat in Time is the perfect candidate for release on Switch - but earlier this year, developer Gears for Breakfast posted a tweet (now removed) that suggested it would be skipping Nintendo hardware.

Things have clearly changed, as A Hat in Time has now been confirmed for Switch release. Happy days! The announcement was made today at Gamescom, along with news relating to the first DLC for the game, 'Seal the Deal'. 

The Switch port doesn't have a confirmed release date as yet, nor has it been confirmed that the DLC will be available on Switch at launch, but we've been told that more info will follow soon.
