ReCore – More than Just Knack 2.0?

"ReCore is an intriguing project and one that Xbox fans should certainly be getting excited about. Microsoft has not been a big lover of new IP since the Xbox first exploded thanks to Halo, but in the last 24 months a definite emphasis has been placed on embracing new franchises and raising them in the same conversations as Halo, Gears of War or Fable. It’s tough to do that though if the game itself isn’t worth of the hype, but from the single cinematic trailer that we’ve seen so far, there’s reason to think Microsoft has found their next big, new thing." - Paul James of BGU

Is the author of this article being serious? We haven't even seen gameplay yet for one. For 2 this game is nothing like knack unless knack invented using power cores ...........

Godmars2901153d ago

Knack also had a core. The difference being he grew larger and gained different powers depending on what he absorbed, when in this case there's going to be different bodies for ReCore to switch from.

Mind you, the only way this game could be similar to Knack is if its released too soon and incomplete.

Nirvana315911152d ago

Hard to say what kind of game this will be but they did confirm its a third person action game. I don't understand why everything has to be CGI these days

Bubiii1153d ago

Microsoft's Knack. Nice!

bouzebbal1152d ago (Edited 1152d ago )

Knack is actually a very good game.. i wish they make a sequel cause it sold well. that might become Sony's new Crash because the game has potential and very well optimized

The comparison with Knack just because they use cores doesn't make any sense.

ZeroX98761152d ago

Similar to knack or not, this game was one of the titles I'd love to have an X1 to play it. unfortunately I have a PS4, but there's going to be plenty of games to buy for me too!

Let's hope my friends who has an X1 buy this title so I can try it out :)

GameDev11152d ago

Knack did invent power cores, :P

Yeah articles like this can be ridiculous, At once they seen even a little bit of similarity they start comparing games

jb2271152d ago

He might also be referring to its pedigree. Knack was marketed as a Mark Cerny title because of his ties to old school titles, ReCore is marketed as a Keiji Inafune title because of his old school pedigree. I can see the surface comparison personally, but ultimately like you said, we haven't seen gameplay yet, so everyone's initial reaction is just as valid as anyone elses. I'm personally not a fan of the cg announcement trailer, the only thing this thing accomplished was mentioning that a game was going to exist created by Inafune on the XBO...a press release & a couple stills would've accomplished just as much. Considering Inafune & Cerny come from similar backgrounds, I could definitely see the potential for similarities in gameplay. I'll reserve judgment until I actually see the title, because going by things like Phantom Dust, this game may not exist now or ever in the future.

The most unique and original Ip revealed at e3 along with sea of thieves.

chaos9991153d ago

Unique and Original for what? Ahahahahah

If Inafune wasnt involved nothing would differenciate from other games.

To me looks like an indie, not a full game

Septic1153d ago

Wait till you actually see some gameplay please guys


Dasteru1152d ago

Anyone who outright dismisses a game just because it "looks like an indie" cannot call themselves gamers. Even without any gameplay shown, ReCore is one of the more interesting games shown at E3 imo. Very much looking forward to seeing more.

PlayableGamez1152d ago

What? Since when did Indie games get CGI teaser trailers.

christocolus1152d ago


Indie? Is that a joke? oO

chaos9991152d ago

You all will see. This will be a digital delivery title

I thought Horizon looked more original to me. But that's just my opinion.

chaos9991152d ago

Nope. It's on PlayStation platforms, can't be original. Just a tech demo.

Dinkis1152d ago (Edited 1152d ago )

I know I'm guna get a lot of flack for saying this but Horizon looks like turok with AC mix. Don't know. To much about the game other than what I saw. Horizon still looks stunning. Recore was all CGI so there's no telling what the game play will be like.
Can't wait to see more of both. And don't get me wrong AC gameplay like the steath mechanics is a good thing. Just my opinion

wegetsignalx1152d ago

Horizon, Dreams, and The Last Guardian were also unique and original IPs.

Unreal011150d ago

AussieGamer1 is so bitter about Horizon. It's adorable. He knows that Horizon was by far the best thing to come out of E3, along with that beautiful Uncharted gameplay, but he just can't bring himself to admit it since it's not on his Xbox One.

Where the heck did this guy came up with that assessment without any gameplay? Recore is being made by the creator of Metroid and Megaman and Knack is a mediocre children launch title.

christocolus1152d ago

Don't worry. I'm sure we will see gameplay for this along with Scalebound and Crackdown at Gamescom.
