Yacht Club Games, the developer best known for the Shovel Knight series, announced its next title will be Mina the Hollower. It took to Kickstarter to raise $311,503 to fund the Game Boy Color-style The Legend of Zelda-like action RPG. Within 24 hours, it met its funding goal. The game is expected to appear in December 2023 on consoles and PCs.
Mina is a mouse and inventor. However, after Spark Generators she designed stop working, she’s called to return to Tenebrous Isle to find out what’s going on. In addition to using her whip to attack and burrowing into the ground, she’ll eventually get sidearms that grant additional attack options and trinket equipment that give her extra abilities. For example, one trinket involves a spider creating webs you can use to cross over gaps.
Here’s the first trailer.
We’re so excited to finally reveal Mina the Hollower! It is a bone-chilling action adventure featuring classic gameplay & an 8-bit aesthetic in the style of the GBC, but refined for the modern era.
