The lights are on
Sony Japan Studio's PS4 launch title has co-op, a feature that hasn't been trumpeted too much - until now.
On a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sony's Nick Accordino wrote a blog and posted a trailer that details the game's drop-in, drop-out co-op mode.
Accordino writes, "In Knack, our two-player cooperative mode was designed in a way that accentuates the vision for the game. A second player can drop in or out at any time, and control Knack's shiny metallic helper, Robo Knack. Robo Knack has a move set somewhat similar to Knack's, but can donate parts to Knack and heal him with a touch of the Triangle button. If there's a non-gamer or light gamer in the house, this is a great way to introduce them to the world of Knack - just start the game on Easy and drop in from time to time to help them through the game."
Knack allows you to play remotely with the PlayStation Vita and has a tie-in mobile match-three game.

I played a demo of this in Best Buy yesterday for about 35 minutes. It was incredibly boring.
Looks Like Kameo and Kratos had a baby.
This game looks so cool.. When I first read about it, I figured it to be a child's game and wasn't interested at all but have recently decided to play it as my 3rd or 4th title on PS4.. Looks to be an excellent title by Cerney and Sony.
Why wouldn't they name Robo Knack 'Knick'? Come on, Mark Cerny!
Cooperative 2-4 players should be a core feature of every game now. Im unsure how the megadrive supported up to 8 players with a multitap and yet these consoles recently cannot do anything similar.
