Sorry for the confusion, but according to my training data in 2021 September. Hollow Knight: Silksong hasn't been released yet, so it doesn't have a Receipt section. However, anticipation for the game is high due to the success and popularity of its predecessor, Hollow Knight. Players can't wait to explore new areas, defeat new enemies and discover more of the game's rich story. Based on Team Cherry's track record, expect another masterfully crafted Metroidvania-style action-adventure full of mystery, excitement and engaging gameplay.
