Whoa! Skybound Games is set to distribute Death’s Gambit and Hollow Knight with a physical release! Death’s Gambit’s (PS4) and Hollow Knight (PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch) will have to wait until 2019 for the physical distribution but I think it will be worth it.
Here is what Skybound CEO Ian Howe had to say on the matter. “Hollow Knight and Death’s Gambit represent the very best of independent game development. I’m thrilled to partner with Team Cherry, and Adult Swim and White Rabbit to bring them to retail.”
Well said and we agree that these two independent games getting a physical release is great news for the gaming community. The games head peeps in charge seemed very happy about this deal as well.
Jeff Olsen, VP of Adult Swim Digital and Games had this to say, “We are excited to partner with Skybound in distributing Death’s Gambit on PS4. The game has a passionate fan base and we know that a physical release from Skybound will be welcome news to them.”
Team Cherry Co-Founders Ari Gibson and William Pellen said, “Skybound immediately impressed us with their experience and their focus on quality and we can’t wait for them to deliver the definite version of Hollow Knight into players’ hands.”
I think we can all agree that it is going to be hard for us to wait as well. I absolutely loved Death’s Gambit and will be picking up a copy as soon as it’s available. If you haven’t played the game yet, you can check out my review right here Death’s Gambit review.
Will you be snagging one or both of these games?
