A Hat In Time is coming to Nintendo Switch—with DLC and co-op!



Fantastic news for Switch owners. A Hat in Time, an indie "Mario-like" 3D platformer (which, in my opinion, gives the plumber a run for his money) has been "on its way" to the Nintendo Switch for some time now. However, we've had no release date, and few updates from the team at Gears for Breakfast.

But now there's something to be excited about. It's just been revealed that the Switch port is getting the local co-op mode (which was added to the PC version as a post-release update), as well as the Seal the Deal DLC!



Although there's still no release date, I'm really pumped for this. Seal the Deal was a lot of fun and incredibly charming, but the real treat here is the co-op. In my previous post discussing A Hat in Time, I sang praises for how good the multiplayer mode is—a second player can hop in anytime, and is a fully playable character (unlike Cappy in Mario Odyssey).

I wasn't sure if we'd see this on the Switch, however. It's a no-compromise split-screen local co-op, which can be demanding of system resources (something the Switch doesn't have a lot to spare). That being said, local multiplayer will be amazing for the Switch, and the Nintendo audience is going to adore playing this game with a friend.

Are you going to pick up A Hat in Time when it comes out for the Switch? Have you played it before on a different platform? Let's discuss it in the comments below!

10 Reasons Why A Hat In Time Is Better Than Mario Odyssey

Don't get me wrong—I love Super Mario Odyssey. There's no denying the level of polish and care put into that game, and it truly is the best Mario game in years. It's just that there's this little indie game that's better.

What Skyrim Still Does BETTER Than Other Open World Games (Assassin's Creed Odyssey, The Witcher 3, Breath of the Wild)

Despite the constant cycle of re-releases, Skyrim is getting old by video game standards. Although revolutionary at the time, years of reflection have not been kind to this game. It's hard to play it now and not notice the stiff animations, copy-pasted quest lines, and of  course  all the bugs and quirks of the engine. But Skyrim paved the way for bigger, more ambitious open world games to come. In the years following games like The Witcher 3, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild took the idea of non-linear gameplay and expanded upon it immensely. Each of these games are masterpieces in their own right, and leave the Elder Scrolls franchise feeling more than a little dated.

Why Do I Suddenly Hate Minecraft?

I have a long  history with Minecraft. My introduction to the game was also my first time playing or discussing games over the internet. It's no exaggeration to say Minecraft changed the trajectory of my life, and over the years I've clocked in countless hours in that blocky world. So... why can I suddenly not stand it? Why Minecraft Is Amazing First, let's discuss all the things I love about the game. The thing that's always stood out to me with Minecraft is how creative  it is. Not that the game  is creative—it presents a fairly generic world with a few clever designs peppered in—but that the game allows for player creativity. Arguably, the whole point of Minecraft is expression. You are given a limitless world and a vast palette of materials to turn this "generic" world into something of your creation. Once while pondering Minecraft, I realized how much it captures the deeply human desire to make a mark on the world. Here you are, dropped into
