Following the shutdown of online play for the 3DS and Wii U yesterday, Atooi founder Jools Watsham has issued a special PSA to "Nintendo 3DS owners and fans of Chicken Wiggle".

All of the 3DS community levels that were uploaded to Chicken Wiggle during its lifecycle will be made available to "browse, play, and download" in Hatch Tales when it launches for the Nintendo Switch on 21st June 2024. Watsham notes how there were "over 2000" of them!

This reminder follows on from a last-minute delay of Hatch Tales at the end of March. The Switch release was scheduled to launch on the eShop last month until it got pushed back to June. This enhanced HD port (formerly known as Chicken Wiggle Workshop) was originally crowdfunded back in early 2018 (with an initial estimated delivery of December 2018), so it's taken more than six years to get to this point.

Apart from its work on Hatch Tales, Atooi also shadow-dropped a new roguelike dungeon hopper on the Switch eShop at the start of this year.

Will you be checking out Hatch Tales when it finally launches on the Switch? Let us know.
