Today, developer Team Cherry dropped a bombshell by confirming the upcoming release of a Hollow Knight sequel called Silksong. The sequel original started as DLC, but based on information in the announcement post from Team Cherry, “quickly became too large and too unique to stay a DLC.”

Hollow Knight originally released back in February of 2017. Since its release, the critically acclaimed indie has gone on to establish an extremely dedicated fanbase. One of the more interesting aspects in regards to the sequel announcement comes dates back to Hollow Knight’s crowdfunding campaign.

According to Team Cherry, Kickstarter backers who spend a minimum of $10AUD will receive a free copy of Hollow Knight: Silksong on launch day for either Nintendo Switch or PC. In addition to the generous offer for previous Kickstarter backers, Team Cherry outlined some of the features Hollow Knight fans can expect once Silksong is available which we’ve included down below.

  • Discover a whole new kingdom! Explore coral forests, mossy grottos, gilded cities and misted moors as you ascend to the shining citadel at the top of the world.
  • Engage in lethal acrobatic action! Wield a whole new suite of nimble moves as you dance between foes in deadly, beautiful combat.
  • Craft powerful tools! Master an ever-expanding arsenal of weapons, traps and mechanisms to confound your enemies and explore new heights.
  • Solve shocking quests! Hunt down rare beasts, unearth ancient mysteries and search for lost treasures to fulfil the wishes of the downtrodden and restore the kingdom’s hope. Prepare for the unexpected!
  • Face over 150 all-new foes! Beasts and hunters, assassins and kings, monsters and knights – defeat them all with bravery and skill!
  • 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.
  • Challenge Silk Soul mode! Once you conquer the game, test your skills in an all-new mode that spins the game into a unique, challenging experience.
