Fangamer has now received our restock of the new production run of Hollow Knight Nintendo Switch games. This new run does not require a free downloadable patch to access the Godmaster content pack, but is otherwise the same. Orders placed on the Fangamer store for the Hollow Knight Standard Edition or Hollow Knight Collector's Edition for Nintendo Switch will now include this print run.
If you have a physical copy of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch which was purchased on or before June 8th, 2019, purchased from Fangamer or from a North American retailer, and you would like to process an exchange for a copy from the new print run, please fill out the number of games to swap above.
Q: Do North American retailers like Best Buy have the new print run available yet?
A: Copies have been sent to all North American retailers, but it may take some time for copies to cycle through to your local store.
Q: I have a physical European copy of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch. Am I eligible for an exchange or return?
A: Unfortunately, Fangamer is unable to process exchanges or returns for PAL copies of the game. We can only process exchanges or returns for NA region games.
Q: How do I tell if I have an NA or PAL region game?
A: NA region games have an ESRB rating logo on the front of the game box. PAL games — which are not sold on Fangamer.com — have a PEGI rating logo on the front of the game box.
Q: How do I tell the difference between a copy of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch from the first printing and a copy from this new production run from the game box?
A: For this new run, we’ve changed one of the screenshots on the back of the box. In the first printing, there was a red screenshot on the left and a green screenshot on the right. In this new run and future runs, there will be a yellow screenshot on the right. A new, sealed copy of the physical game which has a yellow screenshot on the right should contain a game from the new production run. This applies for all copies in North America and Europe.
Q: How do I tell the difference between a copy of Hollow Knight for Nintendo Switch from the first printing and a copy from this new production run if I only have the game card?
A: In North America, there is a number etched on the back of all the game cards. Cards etched with AKLHA22A000 are from the original print run. Cards etched with AKLHA22A001 are from the new print run.
Q: I have a Collector's Edition. Am I eligible for an exchange?
A: If you purchased your Nintendo Switch Collector's Edition on or before June 8th, you can exchange the Standard Edition which is included as a component of the Collector's Edition. You do not need to return any of the other Collector's Edition components. If you have a sealed Collector's Edition you do not intend to open and would like to initiate a return, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
