As a sort of preamble before the big E3 ruckus that is Sony’s upcoming press conference, it’s been confirmed that the upcoming brawler Knack 2 will release on September 5 on PS4.
Speaking to PlayStation’s Sid Shuman, PS4’s system architect Mark Cerny – the mind behind Spyro the Dragon and of course the original Knack – confirmed the news just before a new trailer aired on PlayStation’s pre-E3 show and also mentioned that the game will retail at a reduced price of $39.99.
Given the tepid critical reception to the original, which was a launch title for the PS4, it’s a pretty shrewd move, even if initial previews of the game have been wholly positive. The lower price point certainly worked for the likes of Ratchet & Clank, and with Knack 2’s primary focus being on couch co-op this could be a cheap, effective option for the whole family.
All thing’s considered, we haven’t got long to wait for its release, so in the mean time check out the trailer below.
As ever, stay tuned to PSU all through E3 week for the latest and great news in PlayStation.
