Hollow Knight: Silksong has been rated in South Korea


Hollow Knight: Silksong has been classified in South Korea, suggesting news about the game’s release date could be on the way.

As spotted by a Resetera user, Team Cherry’s much-anticipated metroidvania sequel was actually rated back in February, when the game was classified as suitable for players aged 12 and over.

The rating was discovered after Microsoft launched a Hollow Knight: Silksong store page on Xbox this week, enabling players to wishlist the game.

This was publicised on social media by Xbox president Sarah Bond, who reminded players that the title will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one.

Hollow Knight: Silksong was announced in February 2019 and is due to be released for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Last May, Team Cherry delayed the game from a planned release in the first half of 2023 to an unspecified launch window.

According to its developer, Silksong will feature a brand new kingdom, over 150 different enemies and a Silk Soul mode, a new difficulty setting that greatly changes the game after the first playthrough.

Players control Hornet, a “princess-protector of Hallownest”, and adventure through a 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,” the game’s official blurb reads.

“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.”
