Sony is obviously pretty excited that Ratchet & Clank is getting its very own movie. The company is so excited, as a matter of fact that it is coming up with a brand new game, which is based on that movie. This has created the very real and very odd phenomenon of a game being based on a movie, based on a game. In true Ratchet & Clank style, the company is fulling embracing this and poking fun at itself in the process.
This new game, the first for the PS4 was actually originally supposed to be hitting in 2015 but as the trailer reveals, it will now get a “Spring 2016” release date. The unveiling of the trailer has also brought a bit of new information about the game, including the fact that those visiting E3 next week will get their hands on a playable demo. Sony and Insomniac Games have long talked about this title not just being an upres of the original PS2 series but a standalone game that pays homage to what made the series so beloved.
The companies say when the smoke had cleared from this redesign they ended up with “several new planets, new and updated gameplay segments, all-new Clank gameplay, all new boss fights, new flight sequences,” and more. There are also some new weapons that have never been seen before as well as one weapon that will be available on launch day if gamers preorder the title. Check out the video below and get ready for a spate of info about Ratchet & Clank’s game based on the movie, based on the game.
