Yacht Club Games unveils Mina the Hollower
Posted on February 1, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Yacht Club Games, the developer of Shovel Knight, today unveiled Mina the Hollower as one of its latest projects.
What we have here is an action adventure title featuring an 8-bit aesthetic, though it’s been “refined for the modern era.” Yacht Club says that the title “may remind you of classic titles like Castlevania, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, or even Bloodborne.”
Here’s some additional information about Mina the Hollower:
Descend into a frightful world of action-adventure in Mina the Hollower. Take control of Mina, a renowned Hollower hurtled into a desperate mission to rescue a cursed island. Burrow beneath hazards and monsters, whip foes into oblivion, and gear up with an arsenal of sidearms and trinkets.
Explore a vast world filled with pixel-perfect graphics, masterful gameplay, beastly bosses, and infectious music. Encounter a cast of bizarre characters, search out secrets in an array of exotic locales, and illuminate the omnipresent darkness in Mina the Hollower, a brand new game from the developers who brought you Shovel Knight!
Hauntingly authentic 8-bit visuals in the style of Game Boy Color, refined for the modern era.
Modern touches abound: detailed animation, widescreen visuals, and rock-solid controls!
