Hollow Knight launched last month on Nintendo Switch and since that time, developer Team Cherry has promised that a new update would soon be making its way to this version of the game.
Well, that update has finally come and is being pushed out starting today. The v1345 patch for Hollow Knight mainly cleans up a variety of bugs that Team Cherry found with the game after its release on Switch. Additionally, Team Cherry made mention that they will be adding controller rebinding to the Switch version of the game, but it won’t arrive until the release of the Gods & Glory content pack.
In other Hollow Knight news, it was announced that the title sold over 250,000 units on Switch a mere two weeks after launch, which is incredibly impressive for a game made by the size of Team Cherry.
