Team Cherry has quietly updated Steam assets for its highly-anticipated Hollow Knight sequel, Hollow Knight: Silksong.
As noticed by Wario64 with the assistance of SteamDB, Hollow Knight: Silksong on Steam has had its first vital replace since January 2023, with Team Cherry quietly swapping out a graphic for an updated model.
While it is under no circumstances indicative of an upcoming launch date or something like that – sorry – the adjustments to the storefront graphics are not less than an indication that work remains to be underway behind the scenes, with the group twice importing “capsule art” – that’s, the paintings you see on the sport’s storefront – within the final week, the newest of which was uploaded earlier as we speak.
From what followers can inform, a second model of the identical picture was uploaded to right a small stylistic error on the picture uploaded on 21st September (it seems to be as if just one “L” was capitalised within the sport’s identify, while the alternative picture has each capitalised), nevertheless it’s the primary time Team Cherry has made any change to the Silksong Steam storefront all yr past a handful of tag amendments, so make of that what you’ll (thanks, PCGN).

For now, Hollow Knight: Silksong has no formal launch date – or perhaps a launch window – however we’ll let you already know when that adjustments.
“Hollow Knight is effortless in its presentation of a tragic world secreted within a subterranean kingdom,” I wrote once I reviewed Hollow Knight for Eurogamer manner again in 2018. “You’d be forgiven for complicated its gorgeous fashion for simplicity; although hand-painted in a darkish, muted palette, your explorations are accompanied by a masterful rating, the cartoon-like visuals are shockingly misleading. Hollow Knight is not desirous about spoon-feeding you a narrative or holding your hand. Sure, it could look tremendous cute, however beneath the quirky covers it’s ruthlessly powerful, even sometimes unfair.
“There’s so much more to talk about: the quirky cast, the stunning, subtle setpieces, the special abilities, the colosseum, the grubs (oh, I love them so), but really, this is a journey tailormade for exploration and self-discovery, so rather than read about it, I can only urge you to play it. If you’ve been looking for a polished platformer (and can take on a tough little Metroidvania without screaming in anger or frustration), put this on your wishlist, or better still, grab it now. You won’t regret it.”
