You can do it!
Getting 100% completion in Hollow Knight is a momentous achievement. This is a massive Dark Souls-like adventure with a ton of collectibles to find, bosses to beat, and abilities to unearth. It's also really, really hard in places. That difficulty stems from both the wide variety of bosses you have to conquer, and how well hidden...
Like a boss
What's a Dark Souls-like without some good old-fashioned Bosses? Well, Hollow Knight doesn't disappoint in that arena, with a massive variety of them to battle your way through. Much like its inspiration, these bosses are pretty difficult though, so be prepared to spend a good chunk of time learning their attack patterns,...
As you explore the dark and beautiful world of Hollow Knight, you'll no doubt come across a Charm or two. These are special items that provide various bonuses to our hollow hero. You'll need a free Notch to equip a Charm, and you start with three of them. As you play, you can unlock a total of eight more, allowing you to equip 11...
Our hero in Hollow Knight doesn't fight with swords and shields or any of that medieval nonsense. No, this hero fights with Nails that deal deadly damage when used appropriately. You can Upgrade your nail to deal more damage, and even unlock a variety of Arts that allow you to pull off special moves in combat. In this guide, we're...
Hollow Knight draws a lot of inspiration from Metroidvanias, which traditionally drip-feed you new Abilities to help you better traverse the world and uncover secret areas in previously visited locations. This is no different, with seven unique Abilities you can unlock and use over the course of your adventure. In this guide, we're...
You're a wizard, Hollow Knight
What's a Dark Souls or The Legend of Zelda-inspired adventure without a sprinkling of Spells to cast? It seems like Hollow Knight agrees, as there's a bunch of Spells to collect and cast, ranging from healing your knight to damaging his enemies. In this guide, we're going to detail the location and unlock...
Vessel Fragments in Hollow Knight are parts of Soul Vessels, which increase your maximum SOUL by 33% upon collection. Three Vessel Fragments make up a Soul Vessel, and there are nine Vessel Fragments in total to collect. Collect them all and you double your maximum SOUL. Think of SOUL as your magic meter. You gather it by...
Mask Shards are to Hollow Knight what Heart Pieces are to The Legend of Zelda. Find four of them and you'll earn yourself an Ancient Mask that will boost your health by one. There are 16 Ancient Masks in Hollow Knight, so if you find all of them that's four extra health points. In this guide, we're going to detail the...
Much more than a solid achievement
The Switch isn't exactly lacking for quirky Metroidvanias, with the likes of Yoku's Island Express, Dandara and SteamWorld Dig 2 all stretching the genre in new and interesting directions. Hollow Knight, though, is arguably the m
It’ll be worth the wait
One of the more promising indie games on the horizon for the Switch is Hollow Knight, the Tim Burton-esque Metroidvania starring a whole bunch of bugs. It was initially planned to arrive on the Switch eShop sometime this year—complete with the DLC expansions—but the developer has been worryingly quiet on when we could...
"Things are looking promising!"
Hollow Knight is a promising Metroidvania game due out for a Switch release later this year, or perhaps sooner would be a better word, considering that the developer has stated the port is now feature complete. Up until now, the game has been pegged as an eShop only title, but considering the passionate fanbase that...
Hidden Dreams DLC will also be included for free
The Nintendo Switch has rapidly proven itself to be a wonderful ecosystem for indies to bring their games to, as its easy to develop for, still has a modestly sized games library, and has a rapidly growing userbase. There’s plenty of exciting indie games, both old and new, to look forward to...
Looks to be anything but hollow
The Wii U eShop is really a great place for Indie games to thrive. Affordable Space Adventures, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, and Runbow are just a few examples of the kind of creative endeavors that the storefront plays host to and - to put things in a more positive light – the lack of heavy hitting AAA third...
