Sony Hints to PS4 Return of Old and Beloved Characters, Knack Possibly Becoming a Franchise

on June 20, 2014 10:49 AM

Yesterday Sony held its  97th General Shareholder Meeting at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa in Tokyo and Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House was asked to report on the games available on PS4 and on the future software plans.

House admitted that there’s a necessity to develop more software in Japan and for Japan, while the situation worldwide is better, with many publishers and developers who have invested in the development for PS4, and many great games released to the public.

About Sony itself, House touched two very interesting points, mentioning that Knack is one of PS4’s most popular software and he wants to “cherish” the character, possibly implying that Mark Cerny’s labor of love could become a franchise.

More interestingly, House continued by saying that the company wants users to experience on PS4 “characters that people love” from older games.

While he did not specify any character by name, a few names come to mind. Feel free to let us know just below which old and beloved characters you’d like to see return, even if I’m quite sure I can guess most of the answers.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
