Knack 2 Confirmed at PSX With First Trailer

"Knack is back."


Today during the PlayStation Experience opening ceremony, Sony announced a sequel to PlayStation 4 launch title Knack. A trailer was also shown, providing a first look at the sequel's gameplay. We'll add the video here as soon as it comes online.

No release date was announced. Like the first game, Knack 2 is likely to be a PS4 exclusive.

Knack 2's existence is not a total surprise, as a report from earlier this year claimed Sony's Japan Studio had been working on the game since at least May 2015.

The original Knack wasn't critically acclaimed, but designer Mark Cerny said in 2014 that he believes there was still a lot of room to work in the Knack world. When asked if there would ever be a sequel, he responded, "I would love to keep working with the [Knack] brand, definitely. There's a lot unexplored there, I think anybody who played the game would tell you that."
