'A Hat in Time' (ALL) Gets PS4, Xbox One Date

A Hat in Time is a 3D collect-a-thon platformer where time is falling apart and it is the job of the brave interstellar-traveling solo Hat Kid to collect all the time pieces and put them back together!

In A Hat in Time, you play as a tiny space-travelling girl with a big top hat. Her adventure is halted when all her fuel (Time Pieces) is lost and scattered across a nearby planet. Hat Kid must now jump, fight, and talk her way into every nook and cranny of this new world to restore her fuel and resume her journey.

From the first “boop!” Hat Kid utters, your heart will smile in this brilliantly scripted and professionally voice-acted adventure. You can expect adorable interactions with the friendly folks at Mafia Town, silly banter from Mustache Girl, and more. Some locals will also offer you badges to power up the hats you stitch, making you more powerful and 50 shades cuter than before!

Throughout her adventure you can expect more than 35 acts, including an island full of mobsters and food, a murder mystery to investigate and platform while riding a high-speed locomotive, and some that only the most dedicated collectors will reach.

A Hat in Time will launch on December 5th for PlayStation 4 (North America), followed on December 6th on XBox One (worldwide) and PlayStation 4 (Europe).

Hat Kid is agile despite her young age. She can double jump and climb up walls, as well as propel through the air using her speedrunner-appropriate dive. Hat Kid gains even more mobility and abilities with her heaps of adorably adorned hats, provided she finds enough yarn hidden throughout the world for her to stitch.

For example, her witch hat allows her to brew potions that harm enemies and break through environments. Her fox mask allows her to peek into the dweller dimension, and her snow hat lets her turn to ice and crush her enemies. Hats can become even more powerful by attaching badges that are found, sold, and traded by the locals, too. Hope you like a little metroidvania in a 3D platformer, as these new abilities will let you explore and conquer new places and puzzles you could not previously.

Key Features:

  • Seven Worlds to Discover: Play through massive worlds Mafia Town, Subcon Forest, Battle of the Birds, Alpine Skyline and two free DLC worlds post-launch.
  • Exploration is Key: Every nook and cranny contains some type of goody to help you overcome new obstacles.
  • Pick on Someone Not Your Own Size: Hat Girl may be small, but she packs a punch! Defeat an eclectic cast of baddies to unlock goodies and fight giant bosses.
  • Yay Upgrades: Improve your weapon with new platforming moves and combat ability unlocks.
  • Badges: Don’t tell the scouts, but badges actually give you special powers!
  • Put Some Pep in Your Step: Featuring music co-composed by Grant Kirkhope, the composer for Banjo-Kazooie.

A Hat in Time is currently available for PC and Mac (Humble Store or Steam) for $29.99 USD.
