A feature on Hollow Knight: Silksong in Edge magazine has revealed more gameplay details about Team Cherry's upcoming Hollow Knight follow-up (hollow-up?). Unfortunately, the feature has also revealed that Silksong's release date is still uncertain.

What's new in the Hollow Knight: Silksong Edge feature?

The feature itself is available to read in Edge magazine via digital or physical copies, but Reddit user Cactoir has handily summarized some of the key details over on this Reddit threadSilksong is aiming to match Hollow Knight's difficulty, but also be approachable for newcomers. It'll focus heavily on protagonist Hornet's abilities, including her size, strength, and speed, with enemies in the world being designed around those factors. Unlike the first game's protagonist, Hornet will speak, which will change the way the narrative and goals work. You'll also find lots of different quests in Silksong, as well as Tools Hornet can use (in a similar way to the first game's Charms).


Perhaps most tantalizingly, the Edge article also revealed that Team Cherry is currently working on a new project. According to the article, it'll be unrelated to Hollow Knight; it won't be a sequel or spinoff of any kind, although we don't know if it'll share any gameplay elements. Team Cherry says it's already working on this game alongside Silksong. We don't know when we'll hear more about this project, but it's exciting nonetheless.

Reddit user Runner_Road scanned some images from the Edge article. Here's a preview of some of Hornet's tools:

It's likely on sale wherever you usually get your gaming magazines, or you can pick up a digital version here. We still don't know when Hollow Knight: Silksong will launch, but when it does, it's currently confirmed to be hitting PC and Nintendo Switch. More platforms may happen in the future, according to Team Cherry, but it's only those two to start with. We'll bring you more on this game as soon as we get it.
