So I recently finished Knack 2 and I have to say that I think it's a good sign that we can expect some great things from Studio Japan for the PS5.
It's not a perfect game. But when you consider the improvements over the first (virtually every way); the fact that it is fun to play; and how long it is (maybe to a fault), I think it's clear that the PS4 gen has been a stage of establishing the base for hopefully bigger and better things to come.

I don't think Knack 3 is on the cards (which I feel is a bit of a pity because there's still room for improvement) but I can definitely see Studio Japan getting 2 major internal releases out for the PS5. Maybe 3.

Thank. You.

I'd love a Knack 3 but we know it's never gonna' happen... and seems quite a few key people have left Studio Japan too, so hopefully they can be replaced with some great talent as well as the people still there and make some great games for the PS5!

Yeah I think that won't be an issue. Honestly, as long as the Knack 2 director is still there, (Takamitsu Iijima) then I think all is still ok. Of course, I can't say for certain.

imho Japan Studios improved a lot from PS3 times to PS4 even though I did love Pupetteer.

There's no denying how great Puppeteer is (a crime a port doesn't exist tbqh) but I totally agree with the improvement they have shown. A lot of their internal PS3 stuff, while very cool and varied, is just of a much smaller scale to what they did on the PS4.
