I thought the Hornet dlc was just gonna be playable Hornet with a few new areas to mess around in, but a whole new game holy shiet! Was already sold, but now insta sold!

It was only going to be that but the original game did so well and they likely figured Hornet being a different character to the Knight whose task has already been fulfilled they may as well turn Silk Song into its own game instead of being a dlc chapter to fully flesh things out and start what can be a consistent series.

I'm so glad Hollow Knight exists btw, now people can shut up about a certain other knight when it comes to indie games.

King of Cards campaign out on April 9th!

 

OT: Definitely looking forward to this! Seems like a great opportunity for them to get even more creative with enemy and world design.



So, this is coming in 2020, right? Since the Direct was focused mostly on games coming very soon, and no games from beyond 2019, it'd make sense that's the reason why they didn't show Silksong, besides the trailer itself featuring no release window.



Day one. $10 or $60, still day one.

Shit, really?  Man, I had no idea.

So looking forward to that one.

Few things I've picked up on from the trailer in regards to how Hornet plays:

- Where the Knight had soul to cast his spells Hornet seems to also use silk which is fitting as she is half arachnid.
- The silk meter is below the soul and health masks and seems to be used for all special moves.
- Taking a guess here but it looks like she doesn't have access to soul magic like the Knight.
- This is due to the special moves shown are more combat specific instead it looks like she uses the new tools feature to make up for this.
- Tools seem to work like charms and are equipped at a benches just like them don't know yet if charms are fully replaced but it's likely.
- Where charms were indirect abilities tools are more direct as they or at least the ones shown have to be activated by the player, anyone who has played around with charms in the original will tell how it was a pain that some charms couldn't be activated manually.



Instantly become my most anticipated indie since NITW.

So excited for this! Here's a video from the developers talking about the game:



Signature goes here!

Now i want to know whether the inevitable retail Switch version will include this or not.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Silksong is a new game and not additional content for Hollow Knight so if Hollow Knight gets a retail version Silksong will not be included.
