Death’s Gambit also confirmed to release for Nintendo Switch and Xbox One in late 2018/early 2019.
Team Cherry’s beloved indie title Hollow Knight, which saw immense success on the Nintendo Switch this year, will be releasing for Xbox One and PS4 in Spring 2019 thanks to Skybound Games. That’s not all though – the publisher also announced that Death’s Gambit from White Rabbit will head to Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in late 2018/early 2019.
If that weren’t enough, both titles will receive physical releases for all three consoles. Skybound will also release a physical edition for Lab Zero Games’ Skullgirls 2, which is currently without a release date. Speaking to Variety, Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe stated, “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.”
Team Cherry also issued a statement, noting that, “Skybound immediately impressed us with their experience and their focus on quality. And we can’t wait for them to deliver the definitive version of Hollow Knight into players’ hands.”
Jeff Olsen, VP of Digital and Games at Adult Swim, further added, “Death’s Gambit has a passionate fanbase, and we know that a physical release from Skybound will be welcome news to them.”
Skybound Games is still relatively new, and is a division of Skybound Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead graphic novel creator Robert Kirkman. Titles like The Long Dark and Slime Rancher will also receive physical editions in September courtesy of Skybound Games.
