Hollow Knight, A Gorgeous 2D Metroidvania, Releasing This Month

Australian studio Team Cherry have been working on Hollow Knight for over three years, and now, the game is finally ready for release. Taking place in a forgotten city below the isolated village of Dirtmouth, Hollow Knight has you exploring, fighting and jumping through bug-infested ruins.

Set to release on February 24, the full title is set to have over 130 enemies and 30 bosses – as well as a captivating art-style. Just have a look at the trailer below to see the wonderfully-animated – and equally horrifying – creatures you’ll be brawling with.

Team Cherry promises the world of Hallownest is a “beautiful, interconnected, gothic world that is expansive and open.” As with all metroidvania-themed titles, the Hollow Knight will gain new powers and abilities as he continues with his journey – accompanied by a “haunting, intimate score composed by Christopher Larkin that echoes the majesty and sadness of a civilisation brought to ruin.”


Hollow Knight is set to release on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store on February 24 for PC and Mac.
