PS4 Trailer: Knack

Knack was one of the most visually interesting games unveiled during last night’s PlayStation 4 reveal (it’s cartoony look certainly helped). The game is being directed by Mark Cerny, video game royalty who has had a hand in games starring Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter, and Ratchet & Clank. So it’s safe to say the man knows his way around a platformer.

In fact, the man said it himself, “I’m hoping that we can make something that excites those that played the classic games back in the day, as well as something that attracts new fans to the genre.”

In Knack, a tiny robot uses the ability to change his size and shape, by absorbing or discarding scads of other tiny robots, to battle an army of goblins. It’s in development at Sony Japan Studio and may or may not be a PS4 launch title.

Knack is the first official PS4 game

playstationplainlogoSony has revealed the first game for the PlayStation 4 during their “Meeting 2013” presentation.

Knack will be directed by Mark Cerny, who is a veteran of the Crash Bandicoot series, among others. The game is in development at Sony Japan Studio and features a cartoony war between humans and orcs. The humans believe they can turn the tide with Knack, a tiny robot that can suck up smaller robots to become something much larger.

Knack, like the PlayStation 4, has no release date yet.
