Knack strikes back
It’s fair to say that Knack divided opinion upon its release alongside the PlayStation 4 in November 2013. Some concluded it to be an abomination that failed to live up to the promise of being a Crash Bandicoot successor, while others deemed it to be not so bad. Either way you look at it, it's now clear to see that the divisive...

Back in Knack
Is Knack coming back?! PlayStation's most prodigious platforming hero hasn't been seen since the (honestly, rather good) Knack 2, which released back in 2017 — so we're coming up on five whole Knack-less years, if you can believe it. Anyway, Sony's filed a new Knack trademark in Japan, which has all of us Knackers on the edge of our...
Other Sony games also in the mix
Yes, you read that right -- before the year is out, Knack 2 could be crowned Best Game at the British Academy Children's Awards. With the series reduced to a meme at this point, we're sure the internet will be thrilled to see the sequel recognised as worthy of such an award. On a serious note, it's worth remembering...
That's the last we'll see of him
Knack 2 flopped so hard in Japan that no one even noticed. As always, the Japanese sales charts released yesterday spotlighting the Top 20 software releases in the Eastern region. Japan Studio’s sequel didn’t make the grade, and very few were even aware that it had launched during the tracking period (28th...
Knack is back, Jack
Shortly before the release of Sony’s Knack 2 we got the chance to sit down with the game’s composer, Anthony Willis, and discuss with him some elements of his process for crafting the score for the latest in Sony’s platforming series. Anthony has previously worked on many film projects such as How to Train Your Dragon 2,...
The Knackening is upon us

If you have not yet welcomed the greatest hero of our age into your life, then worry not, as you still have time to atone for your ignorance. How, you ask? Well for starters, you can follow the instructions that we've laid bare below. Complete...
Knack's back, baby
Knack 2 has secured a sneaky PlayStation 4 demo ahead of its 5th September release. Already available on the European PlayStation Store – and presumably set to follow on American storefronts when they update later today – the taster takes you through the title’s Monastery level, which is a bit of a tutorial as we understand...
Got the Knack
This is not a joke: Knack 2 looks really fun. It’s no surprise, of course, as we said a similar thing at E3 2017 – but given the meme status of the original, it’s worth reminding everyone that the sequel looks like a monumental improvement. Don’t get us wrong, it’s not going to win any Game of the Year awards – but the...
The team at Japan Studio are so passionate about Knack that they started working on the sequel before Sony had even given the project approval. “We were already evaluating prototypes before [the platform holder gave us the greenlight],” one team member told IGN as part of a behind-the-scenes interview on the game. “It was fun...
Knack is the butt of all PlayStation jokes, but its sequel looks surprisingly excellent. The game’s director – and PlayStation 4 architect – Mark Cerny has talked at length about how his team at Japan Studio took feedback from the original on board, and while we don’t expect Knack 2 to be winning any awards, it looks like a...
Knack for it
Last year, Sony had massive success with the release of Ratchet & Clank. The game was, of course, excellent to begin with – but its huge success was aided by a lower than usual $39.99 price point. And it’s a strategy that the platform holder looks set to continue as it pushes the PlayStation 4 outside of its hardcore demographic...
