Hollow Knight Sequel 'Silksong' Revealed for Switch, PC, and Mac

Here comes Hornet!

Today on February 13, a brand new sequel to Hollow Knight has been announced by Team Cherry. Although initially thought to be a DLC reveal for the original game, 'Silksong' is actually a sequel, and stars Hornet.

You can see the announcement trailer for Hollow Knight: Silksong just below. At the current time there’s no release date, or even a release window, attached to the game.

What we do know is that we’ll be taking up the mantle of Hornet to explore a “vast new kingdom” in the sequel. This new sequel stars Hornet as the playable protagonist, and while it was believed earlier in the week that Team Cherry would be revealing DLC for Hollow Knight today, Hornet will actually be getting an entire game just to themselves.

Meet Hornet. | Team Cherry

The original Hollow Knight first launched for PC back in February 2017 and didn't arrive on Nintendo Switch until June 2018. Its arrival on the Nintendo console gave the game a huge boost in popularity, with many people believing it to be one of the best Metroidvanias ever released. Hollow Knight released for PS4 and Xbox One in September 2018, and while Silksong will be releasing on PC and Switch at the same time, there's currently no mention of a PS4/Xbox One release as of right now.

Right now, this is all the information that we have to go on for Hollow Knight: Silksong. Should Team Cherry announce any additional details about the sequel, we’ll be sure to report them here.
