Long has mankind wondered: “Who has the nicest hat?” Hyroglyphik Games looks to answer that age-old question the only way we know how — by good, old-fashioned fisticuffs, as their upcoming fast-paced arena fighter King of the Hat lands on Switch.

In King of the Hat, a player’s soul resides in their headwear, which means you’ll have to stomp your foes’ lids to secure victory. But you can also throw your hat at your enemies, adding the element of risk and reward — do you toss your very life at your foes to gain the edge, or play it safe and lose an offensive tool? Combined with a cast of zany characters like a guy whose birthday is everyday and a literal washing machine, and you’ve got a heckin’ good hectic time on your hands.


King of the Hat launches in early 2019 for the Switch. Stay wired for more coverage of the Switch Indie presentation.
