Nintendo Indie strength isn't dead

That is remarkable. By the time the inevitable retail release comes out, it could have done a million sold.

It's just so perfect a place for it. I waited happily for it on Switch and I'm very glad I did. Beautiful game.

Just realized that Nintendo coins are still a thing. So I got it for freeeeee! :D

Did you see you can get them from your cartridge based games too. Just insert the game and get free gold coins from it. (1 time per Cart)

Happy to be one of the 250k, I've been waiting for a year for this port, and it was worth it ! I dumped 20h as of now in Hollow Knight (it might seem a low ammount, but I was extremely busy in the last few weeks, so it's really an accomplishment) and I'm loving its environments, the enemies, the powers and the untold story, I just wish I found out about increasing your "hearts" sooner than the 15h mark, but now I'm catching up !

just like Zelda, you can find mask pieces across the map, if you find 4, you get an extra one, I only found like 3/4 by myself, the others were either sold by merchants or obtained by story progression, still I don't have my 7th mask
