Publisher Humble Bundle and Developer Gears for Breakfast Reveal Console Release Dates for Fan-Favorite Charming Indie Platformer Reminiscent of Beloved GameCube Classics
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Humble Bundle, Inc. — digital retailer of games, ebooks, software and more, where customers can donate to charity through popular pay-what-you-want bundle promotions and now a leading multi-platform games publisher — today announced that the console versions of its 3D collect-a-thon platformer A Hat in Time will be available this December, just in time for the holiday season. A Hat in Time will launch on December 5th for PlayStation 4 (North America), followed on December 6th on XBox One (worldwide) and PlayStation 4 (Europe). Currently available for Windows PC and Mac, A Hat in Time immediately catapulted to top seller charts on Steam, fueled by nearly 3,000 overwhelmingly positive reviews from fans and media alike.
Developed by Gears for Breakfast, A Hat in Time is a true homage to the greatest 3D platformers and a love letter to the classic Nintendo GameCube. This charming adventure channels the spirit of beloved games such as Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie and Psychonauts. Grant Kirkhope, the composer for Banjo-Kazooie, is even on board as a composer for A Hat in Time. A Hat in Time also holds the honor of being one of the largest and most successful Kickstarter-funded indie 3D platformers, earning nearly 1000% of its original Kickstarter goal!
