A Hat in Time for Switch launches October 18

A Hat in Time will launch for Switch both physically and digitally on October 18, publisher Humble Bundle and developer Gears for Breakfast announced.

While the physical edition will include the “Seal the Deal” downloadable content, it will be available as a paid add-on for the digital edition. Seal the Deal adds a new chapter, a new challenge mode, bonus levels, cosmetic items, and photo filters.

The Switch version of A Hat in Time also adds local full-screen cooperative play, which is the first time the feature is available on console.

A Hat in Time is currently available digitally for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. While the Seal the Deal add-on is currently available for the PC version, there are currently no announced plans to bring it to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

A Hat in Time is a cute-as-heck 3D platformer featuring a little girl who stitches hats for wicked powers.

A Little Girl and Her Spaceship

In A Hat in Time you play as a tiny space-travelling girl with a big tophat. Her adventure is halted when all her fuel, the Time Pieces, is lost and scattered across a nearby planet. Hat Kid must now jump, fight and stitch new hats to make her way into every nook and cranny of this new world in order to restore her fuel and resume her journey. On her way, she’ll bump into the menacing Mafia of Cooks, the goofy birds of Dead Bird Studio, the spooky shadows of Subcon Forest, and more!

Murder on a Train! Parades! Trespassing in a Movie Studio?

Every mission in A Hat in Time is unique! At one moment you’ll be solving the Murder on the Owl Express by finding clues and interrogating the locals, the next moment you’ll be the band marshal in The Big Parade, or sneaking through the bird-run Dead Bird Studio!

Small Child, Giant Worlds

Jump freely around in five massive worlds with new adventures to discover around every corner! Just like any child, Hat Kid loves to climb and explore, no mountain is too big for her sense of adventure. She can do multiple jump moves, as well as climb walls, and swing over gaps!

Cute Hats, Magical Yarn and Snappy Badges

By finding and collecting rare magical yarn, Hat Kid can stitch new cute hats with a variety of abilities, including a witch hat that allows her to cook explosive concoctions, and a wooden ghost mask that allows her to peek into other dimensions. Hats can become even more powerful, by attaching badges that are found, sold and traded by the locals!
