Industry veteran – and PlayStation 4 architect – Mark Cerny appeared on Geoff Keighley’s PlayStation Live stream earlier today to show off Knack 2, and to the surprise of everyone… It actually looks really very good. While the original release was a very simplistic platforming affair, the sequel appears to be upping the variety significantly, building lots of cool puzzles around its shape-shifting formula.

Not only is the platforming significantly improved, but the combat looks better as well, with tons more attack options – and even the promise of couch co-op. This very much appears to be what the first game should have been, and we appreciate both Cerny and Sony for having such belief in the concept that it’s decided to give it a second shot.
