Sony has at last released some footage of Ratchet & Clank’s PS4 game.
The re-imagining of the 2002 PS2 game was announced a year ago but today is the first time Insomniac has shown it in action.
The video below also splices in footage of the upcoming film, which was announced at the same time. It seems that the studio has re-worked the game more than it originally anticipated, with the weapons arsenal being more or less completely re-invented.
We knew early on that we didn’t want to just up-res Ratchet & Clank for PS2. We started out thinking of Ratchet & Clank (PS4) as a ‘re-imagining’ of the 2002 original, revised to tie in with the deeper version of Ratchet’s origin story as seen in the film,” the studio’s community lead James Stevenson said.
We envisioned a curated Ratchet & Clank experience that borrowed from the spirit of the classic PS2 titles while infusing some of the best elements from the Ratchet & Clank Future games.
We ended up with a new game, with elements based on the original – 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 more, all constructed to take advantage of the PS4’s graphical prowess.”
Here’s the trailer:
