Knack announced as first PS4 game

PlayStation 4's lead system architect Mark Cerny has announced the first game, Knack, for the newly revealed console.

The game, which features animated, cartoonish graphics, is being developed by Japan Studio under Cerny's direction. The announcement came with a brief trailer to tease the game.

"War has come to our peaceful land," the trailer's narrator, voiced by Jennifer Hale, begins. "We must send our best to neutralize this threat."

Knack, who the game is named for, is a robot "capable of explosive growth." Scenes in the trailer, which you can watch below, show Knack at colossal sizes before shedding his junk particles and shrinking down. Knack was created to help turn the tides in a war against goblin forces, who fight the human race.

Japan Studio is best known for their work on the Ape Escape, Patapon and Loco Roco series.
