A Hat in Time is one of those indie surprises that not only feels enjoyable to play but deserves all the praise it gets. While some would argue that it leans a bit too into the 3D Mario games (for the record, I’m not one of those people), the amount of joy that can be experienced from the game is unmatched. Oh, and that one seal with the egg is cool too. With so much praise for the game and even more for its DLCs, fans have been eagerly waiting for news regarding a new bit of DLC or more A Hat in Time content of some form. It seems next week, we may be getting just that. Gears for Breakfast, the developer behind A Hat in Time, has teased an ominous announcement for November 16 at 10 AM PST.

There’s a lot to talk about in regards to the above image. First of all, we can see many aspects of A Hat in Time in the background, including Mustache Kid, a Mafia member, Hat Kid’s ship, what appears to be a helmeted hat kid on a jetski, and of course, Hat Kid herself. All of this surrounds what appears to be a game console of some sort. While this may all seem random, especially with the words, there’s reason to this which Twitter user @DanielCNR pointed out in the replies.

As you can see, there are some strong parallels to the N64 promotional poster, but its connection to the game is unclear. Could it be as simple (but amazing) as A Hat in Time sequel? A new spinoff? Some more DLC? A brand new game console? While the last one likely isn’t the case, we’ll have to wait for the announcement before knowing for sure.
What are your thoughts? Do you think the A Hat in Time announcement is a sequel? Will that pecking seal ever let go of my damn egg? Let me know!
