Team Cherry's Hollow Knight: Silksong is easily one of the most anticipated indie releases, but we've not heard much about it since it was announced as a "day one" Game Pass title last June during the Xbox and Bethesda showcase.

If you are wondering what's happened to it, there's seemingly no need to worry. Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Xbox, Sarah Bond, recently reminded fans this game is still "coming day 1" to Xbox Game Pass.

Unsurprisingly, her tweet did generate a few responses asking when exactly the game would be released. At the moment, it's not even locked in for 2023, but it seems like this will be the year when fans of Hollow Knight finally get to play this follow-up.

Here's a bit about what to expect when it does arrive:

"Play as Hornet, princess-protector of Hallownest, and adventure through a whole new kingdom ruled by silk and song! Captured and brought to this unfamiliar world, Hornet must battle foes and solve mysteries as she ascends on a deadly pilgrimage to the kingdom’s peak.

Hollow Knight: Silksong is the epic sequel to Hollow Knight, the award winning action-adventure. 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 you haven't already played the first game, it's well worth a look. Our sister site Nintendo Life gave Hollow Knight nine out of ten stars - praising it as one of the "finest, richest adventures" you can have.
