E3 2013: This Secret Relic Resembles a Knack Trailer
Posted by Sammy Barker
We’re still not sure about Knack. While it’s the product of platformer guru Mark Cerny – who’s worked on everything from Sonic the Hedgehog to Ratchet & Clank – something about the art style puts us off. Worse still, the gameplay appears to resemble those awful werehog segments from Sonic Unleashed that everyone seemed to hate. But coming from the guy behind Crash Bandicoot, we’re still hopeful that it could be great.
This brand new trailer doesn’t really reveal much that we haven’t already seen. You still play as a small Pinocchio-esque doll thing, capable of consuming particles to change form. There will be many different guises that you can adopt during the game, and each will augment you with unique skills to conquer different challenges. The title will also feature multiple secret relics, which you’ll be able to find and trade with friends in order to unlock additional perks.
We’re curious if this will adopt a lower price point than other PlayStation 4 launch titles. It’s something that Sony’s already experimented on with Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, and the strategy worked out well for that game. Either way, let us know if you intend to pick this up in the comments section below.
