Hob: The Definitive Edition will be making its way to Nintendo Switch according to a press release from Perfect World Entertainment and Panic Button. If you never happened to play this game, Hob is a fantastic title of wondrous exploration and adventure originally created by the now-defunct Runic Games.

A trailer for the Hob: The Definition Edition Nintendo Switch version has been released alongside this announcement — go ahead and give it a watch!


Hob: The Definitive Edition is an upgraded version of the original Hob with improved controls and updated features for the Nintendo Switch. Primarily, the appeal of Hob lies in the fantastic world that the folks at Runic Games built. Not a single word is spoken throughout the game (much like Devolver Digital's GRIS).

Players must explore an open world and repair damage by solving puzzles to rebuild that which is broken. Throughout your adventures in the open world, you'll be able to grapple, punch, and warp your way across the land. There really aren't any enemies to contend with in Hob, although that's not to say that there aren't plenty of hazards — the various mechanisms of the world can mess you up pretty badly if you aren't careful in your travels!

If you'd like to pick up a copy of Hob: The Definitive Edition for the Nintendo Switch, you should be able to pre-purchase it on the eShop sometime later today at a price of $19.99 or your regional equivalent. It's set to release to the world on April 4, 2019. In the meantime, you can pick up the original version of the game on Steam at the same price point.
