Highly rated throwback collectathon A Hat in Time will chuck its cap towards the PlayStation 4 on 5th December in North America and 6th December in Europe. The whimsical platformer has been a huge hit on PC, topping the Stream charts and garnering some great reviews in the process. With infamous composer Grant Kirkhope on musical duties and gameplay systems that wouldn’t look out of place on the Nintendo 64, the crowd-funded favourite knows exactly what audience it’s coveting.
It’s been a crazy year for the humble platformer, hasn’t it? Yooka-Laylee may not have been amazing, but we’ve also seen the likes of Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy and Sonic Mania on the PS4 alone. A Hat in Time will retail for $29.99 so it won’t exactly be cheap, but it is promising seven worlds and a wealth of secrets, so you should more than get your money’s worth.
