The trailer also treated viewers to over a minute of brand new gameplay showing the main hero, Hornet, traversing environments and fighting bosses.

This new gameplay trailer gave viewers a better look at some of Hornet’s abilities, including multiple projectile weapons, her air dash attack, and the ability to latch onto hooks to travel.

Hollow Knight players have been a little worried over Silksong’s development, due to Team Cherry’s long periods of silence when it comes to showcasing the game.

However, it appears the team is making good progress, as the gameplay show looks just as robust, if not more so than 2017’s Hollow Knight.
