Blue'sNews.com posted a bit more information on the game:

"We are excited to develop and publish the sequel to Knight Rider. The first version was successful and it is a logical move to release its follow-up. We have carefully listened to our customers feedback on Knight Rider and we will be incorporating many of the given suggestions into Knight Rider 2" says CEO, Rogier Avis.

Knight Rider was one of the most popular TV series of the 80's attracting millions of viewers to the adventures and missions of David Hasselhof and his super can-do-all car K.I.T.T. Knight Rider is still shown on many TV Stations worldwide and enjoys a large following of fans who fondly remember Michael Knight, Bonnie, Devon and Garth, as well as the main star of the series, the shiny black sleek car named K.I.T.T.

Knight Rider 2 will address much of the customer feedback received on the first Knight Rider game as well as add many new features, which will improve the gameplay dramatically whilst maintaining the authentic atmosphere of the series. Knight Rider 2 will contain more action, in-game animations, special effects and dialogue than its predecessor. In addition to the gameplay elements of chase, race, explore and puzzle, Knight Rider 2 will also offer two complete new games modes: Combat and Mini Games.

As in the first Knight Rider, the player will play K.I.T.T. and must use all the unique features that this famous car was capable of in order to successfully complete missions. Whether its driving in ski-mode in narrow alleys, utilizing night vision to see where others can not, chasing the bad guys with incredible speed by activating the Turbo Boost or scanning buildings to analyse a situation, Knight Rider 2 will still offer all the thrilling features associated with the original K.I.T.T. car of the TV series.

In Knight Rider 2, KITT is now also capable of Combat mode which will raise the gameplay element significantly with the player using different car-based weapons to fight off robots, armoured vehicles and of course Garth, Michaels evil twin-brother and arch enemy. Mini Games such as Dirt Track Racing and The Shooting Gallery add to the excitement and fun. These Mini Games may be unlocked by successfully completing certain missions.

Furthermore, new tracks and environments, some with unconventional surroundings, will definitely add to a fantastic gaming experience. In this second game, players will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Knight Rider playing out numerous action packed missions providing hours upon hours of fun. A multi-player mode will allow breathtaking split-screen action between two players.

joao, kitt and david

João da Encarnação, who's car was featured in the RTL show "20 Jahre RTL" that we mentioned below, has put some great photos as well as description of the experience on his website.

David even didn't knew that RTL had arranged a replica for the show, so when he saw  the car, he was totally surprised. He walked straight to it, and said "this is my buddy"!

If you are a fequent visitor to our fourms, then this message will be nothing new to you:

Davilex today announced that it is working on a sequel to last years Knight Rider game which was released world wide on PC and in Europe on PS2. The game will include many of the modes from last year, but will include a few new items.

In addition to the chase, race, explore, and puzzle elements found in Knight Rider, the sequel will feature two additional gameplay elements in the form of combat and minigames. Using KITT's combat mode, players will do battle against robots, armored vehicles, and Michael Knight's evil twin brother Garth. Minigames in Knight Rider 2 will include a shooting gallery and dirt track racing amongst others.

One of the things the mention is that they have listened to the feedback everyone provided and will be using many of the suggestions in Knight Rider 2. Only time will tell if this is true, but thanks to everyone in the community for donating to those list of suggestions! Hopefully this will show when a community comes together, things can happen. I know it will be well worth it, and it's great when a Company tries to touch base to make the best product possible. They hope to have the game released by the end of the year.

Thanks to knightdogg for the find!

According to davidhasselhoff.at, David was in Germany last week for a television taping and they have a play by play of his trip in their news section. On January 9th, they taped a show for RTL and he did something special:

David had a breathtaking intro with his KITT car. The scanner was shining in the dark studio, and RTL showed a clip about RTL series... David was driving on stage....

From what we've gathered, the show in Germany contacted a replica owner from Holland to use their the car as an intro to the interview. Looking forward to seeing a clip of this one.

Also, Swerni from knight-rider.net (a german language based Knight Rider website) got a chance to ask david about the movie she had this to say:

I had the chance to ask David about the Movie... THEY are working on the Movie.. and he won´t quit this project... so we just have to wait a little bit... David is now on his way home...

UPDATE: Swerni posted some screen caps here!

david's site was updated with image and text from his trip in Germany! Alas there is no new info on the Knight Rider movie.

"JANUARY 7, 2003...MESSAGE FROM DAVID....HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Hope everyone had a very happy holiday season. We had a nice family vacation in the Bahamas and New York. I am writing this quickly today as I am heading for the airport. I am going to Cologne to appear on 20 Jahre RTL -- the show will air on Monday, January 12th on RTL, I think at 8:15pm. This is just a quick visit to do the show, but I will be back in Germany and in Austria in late January and early February as the new album comes out in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on February 2nd. I have attached two photos from my last visit to Erfurt--it was a blast to be back and it was great to see so many fan club members. Keep Smiling! David"

Thanks to Sith who was first to catch this update!

Swerni, from knight-rider.net got a chance to sit down with David Hasselhoff a few months ago. The article can be found by clicking the image of David and Swerni on their website. The article however is in German, so please find below a translation for your convience.

From a babelfish translation:

This is the message of Dave for all fans and we it to hear can, does not lie the film not on ice. The explanation of David for it that the film retards for the moment, is not to be pointed from the hand to. The last Scripts for the film did not correspond what one imagines under Knight Rider. Among other things it e.g. a Script gave, in which also branch-hone kutscher along-play should. This Script was in the style of "Carwash", out held K.I.T.T. should K.I.T.T.Y become and the whole rather a comedy be. In addition a further Script that strong was ajar against the design of "three angels for Charlie", was for this circulated the rumor of Vin Dissel than leading actors, in addition, this Script is not what expectations that of studios, the fans and also not the conception of David. Thus these rumors can be vacated from the way.

Swerni will meet with David again when he is in Germany in the next couple of days. She hopes to be able to ask him about the recent rumors that have surfaced about the Knight Rider movie's future. There is a thread on the message board, that is recommended you visit. In it Swerni is asking for suggestions on the new movie, which she will produce to Hasselhoff at their next meeting. The thread can be found here.
