The visual style and cartoony cutscenes will be familiar to anyone who played the original, but Knack 2 has the benefit of hindsight.

Here’s what the game is promising, according to the video description:

  • Over 20 awesome moves including boomerang, whip rush, sword, multi-bomb and body slam
  • Grow to the size of a building or shrink down to just two-feet tall
  • Jump in a tank or robot and control it – or just destroy them
  • Collect relics to power up and smash your way through hordes of enemies
  • Seamless co-op mode so you can play together whenever you choose
  • Accessible gameplay for kids and challenging gameplay for adults
  • Vibrantly colored world with stunning graphics
  • Puzzles for varying skill levels

In other words, Knack 2 is a game you play with your kids, and that’s why it has co-op now. Fair enough. It’ll also have 4K support on PS4 Pro.

Knack 2 will be available on September 5, exclusively for PlayStation 4.
