Beyond the memes, Knack is just a solid platformer that deserves a new home on the PlayStation 5.
I'd rather they make a new platformer IP. With Sackboy and Astro's Playroom PS5 looks very good for the platformer genre so far
Agreed. Astro Bot Rescue Mission is honestly one on the best platformers I've ever played. It took things to the next level and was a delight from start to finish! That said, while I was happily laughing along with the "Knack 2 baby!" memes with everyone else, I have to say I was a bit shocked when they gave it out free on PS Plus and I actually played it...it was actually really enjoyable lol And huge too. Really long, loads of replayability and upgrade trees, new powers, costumes, challenge modes...hate to admit it, but I'd be pretty pleased with a Knack 3 announcement now!
Also Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Balan Wonderworld, Crash Bandicoot 4 (probably), and Spyro 4 is rumored to be in development PS5 is looking great for platformers
I think it would be great if they rebooted it, keep the visual style, but change the tone of the story and voices to match. This game looks like it should have a semi mute protagonist with a silly professor and his rebellious apprentice. Instead knack sounds like a brainwashed soldier, the professor like an angry divorced dad, and the kid is such an average joe. And the story takes itself way too seriously, it's so clashing with it's art style
Thye don't need Knack they got Sackboy. He'll kill it
It's time for Ape Escape PS5, Dual Sense Enhanced. Give me that first. Then whatever.
Couldn't agree more, i remember the first time playing Ape Escape with the Dual Shock, great times, we need a PS5 version.
Yeah. I didn't know a controller could do so much until that game.
It's really not. The first really didn't deserve a sequel, and the sequel, itself, was nothing special.
Ah no. He was lucky to get two games, and should really retire for good... And the first Knack is more a 5/10 game than a 7/10. The second game I only played the demo, but it's supposed to be marginally better. So leave Knack in pieces please.
My boys would love Knack 3
NO I am Good (Simpsons APU Voice)
Sackboy is so much better. Think they should use those resources on something else. I would love a gravity Rush 3 or a Freedom Wars 2
I rather they use that resources and remaster Motorstorm.
Motorstorm is one of their series I was sad to see didn't get reintroduced on the PS4.
Knack is a great series. Beat both games and enjoyed them very much. Would love a third one. Make it happen Sony.
Knack 1 was a mediocre game that basically was just a showcase of how many polygons PS4 could display at launch. The sequel was a slightly better title, but still a subpar game, whose existence wasn't justified. Both sold fairly poorly. It's fine that you enjoyed them, but neither their critical response, nor their sales, justify yet another game.
