Might want to wait.The current physical copy doesnt include all the DLC.New copies that come out in August will have them.If you care about the DLC anyway.


@Mariofan15 What do you mean by that?


@Shinobi120

He means that the retail cartridge isn't the fully updated version which has all the previously released updates on cartridge. Out of a grand total of approximately 6 gigs of game, you're only getting about 4 on the cartridge and will have to download a two gig. update in order to access all the DLC.

The good news however is that the developers know they're at fault and will be releasing a fully updated cartridge version in retailers come August.

Nice. Source for this?

Also, how will I know which version I’d be purchasing once this is 9out? I hope they don’t keep the packaging exactly the same

@jojopellegrino

Check out Team Cherry's website. Someone on this board already posted a link stating their apology. I was wrongfully suspended these last few weeks from posting so I forget the topic where that link originated from. As far as knowing the difference of the two cartridges; that I don't know. I bought mine from Gamestop so I'll probably have to bite the bullet and rebuy it.

I have a physical copy and it includes all the DLC on the cart. Fangamer is the publisher. (Bought it from Best Buy.)
Oh? Who are you, Mr. Bunny? This world is like the real world, but evil has twisted it.

@The_Sage @jojopellegrino I think that this link from fangamer here will explain it in detail:

https://fulfillment.fangamer.com/kindling/hk-replacements

Scroll down to where it says "How do I tell the difference between a copy of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch from the first printing and a copy from this new production run from the game box?".

Thanks for that. I saw it at best buy last night @ $30. I should have gotten it. I should go back.

1) My entire Switch library consists of physical games
2) I can resell it later on if I ever get tired of it

Resell Hollow Knight?

LOL

Oh man that is a good one this is one of the greatest games made in the past 10 years, I can't imagine ever letting it go. s*** I almost want to buy it on every device I own just to support this developer.

I do too but not when it's twice the cost of a digital version. Physical ones are supposed to be cheaper, not more expensive.
