Just when you thought Insomniac were done making Ratchet games, the company has announced yet another title starting the Lombax and his robot buddy. Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (or Q-Force as it’s known in Europe) will be released later this year on PSN and is said to return to series to its root in light of Ratchet & Clank’s 10 year anniversary. According to Insomniac Community Manager, James Stevenson, Full Frontal Assault will be “closer to Quest 4 Booty than A Crack In Time” which I personally found discouraging but he continues to say “[Full Frontal Assault] will be more replayable than either of those games!”. I assume this means that the game will have some sort of multiplayer component but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Below is an excerpt from the official announcement, hopefully more information and the debut trailer will be revealed at E3.
Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is a fun-sized Ratchet adventure which will be available for download exclusively on the PlayStation Store. We’ve returned to the series’ classic feel, camera, controls and weapons, while innovating and giving you a whole new way to play. Even better, the addition of online features means you can experience Full Frontal Assault with your friends, so stay tuned! We’re really excited about this game, and we hope even these small tidbits about it get you excited too.
We’ve been hard at work on Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and now we’re giving you a sneak peek at this first piece of art to give you a taste of what we have in store for you when the game launches later this year. In the meantime, we hope you pick up the Ratchet & Clank Collection when it comes out this summer. We’ll have some more news on the Collection’s release date and a special surprise for North American fans coming in the next couple of weeks.
