Late night TV host Jimmy Fallon may have struggled to get to grips with Killzone: Shadow Fall earlier in the year, but he definitely put in a much better performance with Knack overnight. As part of an ongoing video game week, Fallon invited PlayStation 4 system architect Mark Cerny onto the show to talk hardware and mascot platformers.

Incredibly, this is probably the best footage of Knack that we’ve actually seen. The colours really pop in the video, and Cerny did a great job of showing off the particle effects when you initiate a special attack. We still think that the game looks a little visually bland – compare it to Ratchet & Clank where the backdrops are bursting with activity – but the basis appears to be in place.

Are you planning to purchase Knack alongside your PS4? As always, let us know in the comments section below.
