Knack is the first game confirmed for the PlayStation 4 (and it looks like a Pixar movie)

Follow our PlayStation 4 coverage

The PlayStation 4 is real, and we have the first confirmed game.

Sony announced Knack, a third-person action game for the new system, at its PlayStation Meeting today. The title features (dare I say it) near Pixar-like visuals in a world filled with goblins and the humans who fear them.

The title character is a tiny morphing robot who can gain significant strength by absorbing objects that are around him in the game’s world.

Knack is also notable for who is directing it. Mark Cerny is the lead designer behind the PlayStation 4, and he is the lead designer on Knack. He knows the hardware and is squeezing some impressive Toy Story-like visuals out of it.

We’ll have more information as it is available.
