Knack 2 nominated for a BAFTA

No kidding.

BAFTA has announced the nominees for this year's Children's Awards, and PlayStation 4 exclusive Knack 2 is among those honoured with a spot on the short list.

The annual British Academy Children's Awards has nominated four titles in its best game category. They are:

  • Knack 2
  • Frantics
  • Everybody's Golf
  • Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

We're big fans of Mario + Rabbids, while Everybody's Golf is a solid shout. It's also nice to see Frantics, a PS4-exclusive PlayLink game, recognised.

And then there's Knack 2, which Chris Donlan described as having an "aggressive charmlessness" in Eurogamer's Knack 2 review.

Other Children's BAFTA nods went to films such as Coco, The Incredibles 2 and Paddington 2, and TV shows such as The Clangers and Worst Witch. The awards ceremony itself takes place next month on 25th November at Roundhouse, London. C'mon Knack!
