I just played Hollow Knight for the first time after having owned it for who knows how long. It’s really a great game all around. Can’t wait to dive into this. Day 1 purchase for me. They’ve earned it.
I don't think there is any way this could be bad, if it's a prequel and you see her grow in strength or a sequel (kinda looks like she escapes being transported, maybe after being trapped inside?). Day one purchase for sure.
