Gears for Breakfast has a special announcement planned for its 3D platformer, A Hat in Time. Taking place on April 25th at 12 PM PDT/3 PM EDT, a tweet teasing the announcement asks “Where is Hat Kid?” And no, contrary to expectation, this isn’t an appearance for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
What could it be? The safe bet is an announcement of the Switch version’s release date. The developer confirmed way back at Gamescom 2018 that A Hat in Time would be coming to Nintendo’s hybrid console this year, but it has yet to provide a release date for the same.
It’s possible that the development team took some more time to ensure the Seal The Deal DLC was also included. This DLC added a new Arctic Cruise level, six more time rifts, and the new “Death Wish” mode to introduce additional devious challenges. A free update later added co-op to the experience, letting players control Bow Kid as the second character throughout the campaign.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT incoming!
Tune in to our Twitch on April 25th for an all-new A Hat in Time announcement. So, #WhereIsHatKid ?
