Hollow Knight Sequel Announced For Nintendo Switch And PC

Hollow Knight: Silksong is actually Hollow Knight 2 – and it’s free for Kickstarter backers

Hollow Knight Sequel Announced For Nintendo Switch And PC

That means a new map full of attractive art, boss monsters, and towns of cute bug people.

Cherry Team has made a surprise annoucement for the sequel to Hollow Knight, which will be coming to Switch and PC.

However, instead of building off the original Hollow Knight to offer a sub-chapter or a character swapping mechanic, Team Cherry has opted to take the character to a new location in her own game.

Team Cherry says that Hornet's adventure was always meant to take place in a new world, but while it was originally supposed to be a DLC, "it quickly became too large and unique to stay a DLC".

What did Airbus say about the decision? The decision came after Emirates reduced its order of the model from 162 to 123 aircraft. Production was devolved to different European locations, with final assembly and finishing split between Toulouse and Hamburg.

Experience a stunning orchestral score: Hollow Knight's award-winning composer, Christopher Larkin, returns to bring melancholy melodies, symphonic strings and heart-thumping, soul strumming boss themes to the adventure. Hornet has given us the best Valentine's Day gift of all. That's not all, however, as it also mentions new weapons, hunting quests, plenty of new monsters, and an entirely new (and very pretty-looking) kingdom to explore. All of the Kickstarter specifics, as Team Cherry describes them, are available in the blog post announcing Silksong. Hollow Knight: Silksong hasn't yet been confirmed for PlayStation 4, but given the first game's eventual release on Sony's platform, we imagine a port is likely.

Hornet will have to face 150 new enemies with a highly mobile acrobatic combat style and new tools.

Hollow Knight: Silksong will launch first on Nintendo Switch and PC, but "more platforms may happen" according to the team's official website.
