You know, this game IS a slow burner. My first play through ended rather aruptly when I just sort of lost interest. However, once I gave it another shot, I fell in love. I love the idea that the characters are insects in a subterranean, gothic wonderland that's at once desolate, lonely, and somehow wonderfully welcoming. It's like listening to a Joy Division album from start to finish. Definitely not for everyone, but if you are fascinated by the deep dark corners of the mind (but not TOO dark), give it a go!!!

Just a reminder that the physical version of Hollow Knight is now available at Best Buy. I'll be picking up my copy later today.

So I used a Best Buy gift card to pick up a physical copy of Hollow Knight. It's a such a great game, I think it's worth owning.

Anyway glad I did because it contains a small map and a nice glossy (albeit small) instruction manual. This would have been nice for me to have when I started playing, as I had to figure everything out myself!

So if you're in the market for this game, I'd advise picking up a physical copy now that it's available. I've removed the download-only icon from the review.

Critic, in case your not aware some early Switch physical versions had to be recalled as it did not have all DLC and patches, and if you are having issues you can replace it for free from Fangamer. More info here: https://amp.reddit.com/r/NintendoSwitch ... _physical/

Looks to me that this only concerns people who ordered directly from fangamer.

Thanks for the heads-up though.

What version does your copy say when put into the system, the latest version is 1.4.3.2 or is it later patch update. And one way to tell is delete the digital version put the cart into console and try selecting update to see if you have the complete version on cart. If it incomplete it should have 1.7 GB download, if it has no update it should be fine and another way to tell if you have the Godmaster DLC selectable in the game. If you can bw transparent on that info because you got your copy in August a few months after the Switch physical launch let us know?

Update: For people like the critic and others want to know what Switch version of Hollow Knight has everything on cart Corrected version with all DLC actually on the cart now available from Fangamer (original cart's back etching is AKLHA22A000, new one is AKLHA22A001) If critic and others have AKLHA22A001 on the back of the Switch cart they are good, if they have AKLHA22A000 they need to contact Fangamer about the issue to replace it.

Well I got the old version, so I guess I need to send it back. What a pain in the ass!
