Hollow Knight, one of the most acclaimed indie titles in recent years, is getting a full sequel, developer Team Cherry has announced. Named Hollow Knight: Silksong, the game places Hornet in the spotlight in her very own adventure, with a new world to explore and hundreds of new enemies to tackle.

"Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the epic action-adventure of bugs and heroes," says Team Cherry. "As the lethal hunter Hornet, journey to all-new lands, discover new powers, battle vast hordes of bugs and beasts and uncover ancient secrets tied to your nature and your past."

If it seems a bit quick to be seeing a sequel, don't forget that the game's initial launch on PC was about two years ago. Hollow Knight: Silksong hasn't yet been confirmed for PlayStation 4, but given the first game's eventual release on Sony's platform, we imagine a port is likely.
