When Knack was promoted alongside Sony’s PS4 back in 2013, people were excited to have a refreshing take on the third person adventure titles that were so popular back in the era of the 2000’s, unfortunately the game wasn’t as good as we had hoped – in fact it was pretty awful, and it seems most of the internet agreed.
However, this didn’t stop Sony who for some reason thought that it would be a good idea to bring a sequel to the dismally performing game – it wasn’t.
According to VGChartz, the game shifted 67,000 units during its first week on retail, a considerably low number for a ‘triple-a’ title, especially when compared to games like Cuphead, which shiftED 500,00 copies during the first week on Steam.
It’s worth noting, however, that VGChartz isn’t a solid report on actual sales, but rather a fairly decent benchmark as to how a game performed.
