It appears that the Ratchet & Clank franchise is taking over Spring 2016. Not only is the first feature-length film releasing during April, but a “re-imagining” of the first Ratchet and Clank title is set to release sometime during Spring. The title is essentially a completely redone Ratchet & Clank that is tightly based upon the first title in the franchise, but made for a modern audience in mind. James Stevenson, Community Lead at Insomniac Games, stated in his blogpost on The Official Playstation Blog that, “We ended up with a new game, with elements based on the original â€” but now with modern controls, several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences, and moreâ€¦ all constructed to take advantage of the graphical prowess of PS4. Throw in James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, and you have a new beginning.”Â
Hopefully you enjoyed the, dare I say it, Pixar-like quality of animation in the trailer as much as we did. The movie is slated to arrive on April 29, 2016; while the game is slated for Spring 2016.
