Loyal fans of PlayStation consoles have very few franchises as near and dear to their hearts as Ratchet & Clank. With a reboot to the series coming in the form of a new game and a movie, there is a lot to look forward to next month.
What better way to get a new fan base into the Ratchet & Clank universe than to show them where it all started. The new title is a remake of the original game with enhanced graphics, gameplay, and much more. To get people excited for the release, Insomniac Games has released a new story driven trailer on the PlayStation Blog. While this specific trailer focuses on the game’s story, James Stevenson, Community Lead of Insomniac Games, talked about the relationship between this title and the connected film. “The film and game are designed as complementary pieces,” he stated. “The film focuses a touch more on character development and the game is a bit more focused on the action that happens between the scenes. Our goal was to take advantage of what each medium does best.”
The new Ratchet & Clank will hit stores on April 12th in the United States, exclusively for PS4. The film will have a wide release on April 29th. Be sure to check out both for the full experience. See the trailer below for a small taste.
