It seems we don’t need to wait for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s E3 2017 Press Conference to start to begin with the news bombs — according to the conferences pre-show, sequel Knack 2 will be hitting PlayStation 4 on September 5, 2017. On top of that, there is a gameplay trailer with some new action to feast your eyes on.

Knack 2 isn’t something entirely knew. A meme in its own right, the game was first announced at PlayStation Experience where Sony debuted the mascot platformer. Later on, more details were announced — screenshots, previews, and the rough launch date of sometime in 2017.

The latest trailer, seen below, shows some diversity with gameplay. Of course, the standard Knack combat is still around. More interestingly, the trailer showcases a bevy of environments, enemies (ranging from mechanical to troll like), and platforming obstacles that definitely look outside the scope of the original Knack.

As mentioned above, Knack 2 comes out exclusively for PlayStation 4 on September 5, 2017. Check out the trailer below, courtesy of YouTuber MKIceAndFire:
