Those of you who caught Nintendo’s livestream last night are probably stoked (I know I am!) over the news that The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening would be getting a remake. But that’s not the best news for genre fans.
For starters, you know that rumoured DLC announcement by Team Cherry for Hollow Knight? Well, it turns out that it’s not a DLC, but a brand-new game! Hollow Knight: Silksong is in development for Switch, PC, Mac, and Linux. No release date as of yet, but the game will have you playing as Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest.
Expect new areas, new weapons, new foes and gameplay mechanics with this game. Christopher Larkin also returns to score the sequel. In addition, after you complete the base game, you unlock Silk Soul Mode, where you “test your skills in an all-new mode that spins the game into a unique, challenging experience”.
In addition, Team Ninja’s award-winning game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Again, no release date has been given for the game, but it’ll be interesting to see just how a game that was so technologically impressive be brought to the Switch.
Plus, it’ll be an excuse to play the game again.
Hellblade was originally released for PlayStation 4 and PC in August 2017, followed by Xbox One in April 2018.
