A Hat in Time's physical release requires a download

Make some room

A Hat in Time, which we shared an unboxing video for earlier today, is the latest physical Switch game that asks its users to download extra data. To be specific, the game prompts people with a 5.4GB download. It seems you can start the game without this download, so that extra 5.4GB might be tied to the game's DLC.

A Hat in Time devs working on bug fixes

Bug hunt

A Hat in Time players on Switch have noticed some small issues with the game, including a couple instances of freezes. The dev team has taken to Twitter to state that they're working on bug fixes right now, and will continue to keep track of problems players are encountering. If you were hit by a bug, you can drop a comment about the problem in this official Reddit thread.

A Hat in Time on Switch is 4 times the size of the PS4 version

You're gonna need a bigger hat

A Hat in Time takes up roughly 16 GB on Switch, which makes it bigger than The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, as well as Super Mario Odyssey. While the file size in and of itself is a bit surprising, the real shock comes when comparing the Switch version to the PS4 release. Somehow, the PS4 version of the game is just 4 GB, making Switch 4 times larger. We usually see file sizes shrink when jumping from another platform to Switch, so we're not quite sure what happened here!
