PS4 Exclusive Knack’s ESRB Rating Published, Describes Powers and Fantasy Violence

on October 31, 2013 12:00 PM

The ESRB just published the rating for the upcoming PS4 launch game Knack, and of course it got an “E for Everyone”  with “fantasy violence” as a content descriptor.

What’s interesting is the summary of the rating itself, that describes Knack’s powers and mentions some interesting details about what he can do later in the game:

This is an action-adventure game in which players help a small hero, composed of ancient relics, protect mankind from an invading goblin army. Players use punches, jumping attacks, and various super moves (e.g., storm attack, shockwave, blast) to defeat human soldiers and fantasy creatures (e.g., giant bugs, goblins, robots). As player progress through the game, Knack can grow in size to battle larger enemies including tanks, mechanized battle suits, and attack planes. The somewhat frenetic combat is accompanied by impact sounds and mild explosions.

It sounds quite interesting, doesn’t it? Especially the part about battling tanks and attack planes, but this has to be the first time I hear combat described as “somewhat frenetic.”
