Atooi will release Hatch Tales, its upcoming adventure platformer with level building and sharing tools, for Switch in 2021, the developer announced. Limited Run Games will also distribute a limited print physical edition.

Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:

Join Hatch on his exciting quest through a fairytale adventure of epic proportions to rescue his feathered friends from an evil witch in her sky towers. Along for the ride is Hatch’s improbable pal, Wiggle the worm!
