The news was revealed in collaboration with G4TV, who also streamed the first look at gameplay for Mina: The Hollower live.
While Shovel Knight put Yacht Club Games on the map as genius game designers, particularly for 2D platformers, Mina takes the studio in a different direction.
Immediately the influences from classic adventure titles like Zelda. Not recent titles like Breath Of The Wild, but more classic titles like Link’s Awakening.
There’s also a slew of influences from games like Castlevania, and Dragon Quest III. Just how Shovel Knight was the studio’s love letter to classic NES style games, Mina: The Hollower is a love letter to handheld classics from the GameBoy era.
Players can also expect more RPG elements, and a new levelling system.
