If you want to see more of the upcoming Knack sequel Knack II, you have come to the right place. Today, during a stage event hosted by Sony Interactive Entertainment at Ani-Com & Games Hong Kong, the house of PlayStation showcased some new gameplay of the upcoming action-platformer.

We get to see some couch co-op gameplay (the demo was played live by two people on stage) starting at the arena of Eva’s monastery, and the extending to the streets in the surrounding village.

Combat against different enemies was shown, alongside agility sessions as our heroes have to avoid or destroy rolling boulders, and rotating obstacles and platforming that require transforming. There are also secret areas including treasure chests with loot.

To top it all off, we also get to see a couple of lovely cutscenes and a battle including some co-op quicktime events prompting both players to press the prompted buttons at the right time to counter enemy attacks. Luckily, this isn’t the real boss battle, as that happens afterwards without any quicktime events.

You can check out the video below, and if you want to see more you can enjoy some more images, a batch of 4K screenshots captured on a PS4 Pro, more gameplay footage, and the trailer released at E3.

Knack II will release in North America on September 5th and in Europe on September 6th, exclusively for PS4.
