Hollow Knight for the Switch

The somewhat vague release date spring 2018 results from the 2nd big project that the developers of Team Cherry are working on. Namely that Nintendo Switch Version of Hollow Knight. As much as the developers would like to have the third DLC ready for the release of the Switch version, there is no time for it. So "Gods & Glory" appears after Hollow Knight was released for the Switch. Of course, the DLC is just like the first two buyers of the game for Switch free.
