Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone. Team Cherry is making a Hollow Knight sequel.
Team Cherry has confirmed that their majestic metroidvania game, Hollow Night, is getting a full blown sequel called Silksong.
Hollow Knight: Silksong stars Hornet – who made a memorable appearance in the first game – and features a whole new subterranean world to explore with new enemies, quests, and characters to discover. Composer Christopher Larkin also returns with a new orchestral score.
Silksong started as DLC for first game, but has since grown in scope and size. In a blog post, Team Cherry say:
“Almost from the very start, Hornet’s adventure was intended to take place in a new land, but as we dove in, it quickly became too large and too unique to stay a DLC, as initially planned. We do know that makes the wait a little longer, but we think the final, fresh world you’ll get to explore is worth it.”
Take a look at Hollow Knight: Silksong‘s awesome reveal trailer.
All 2158 of the first game’s Kickstarter backers will receive the game for free, and backers of the $10AUD tier and above will also be able to choose from either the Nintendo Switch or PC versions.
Hollow Knight: Silksong will initially be released on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Nintendo Switch. A release date has yet to be been confirmed, so in the meantime head over to the game’s brand new website, and check out some of its sumptuous art.
