Ratchet & Clank appear to be making up for lost time in 2016. Sony’s sci-fi heroes not only have a swanky big screen adaptation (with bonus Paul Giamatti action!) at the ready for the spring, but they’ll be returning to the world of Playstation offerings too.
That sexy rectangle at the top of your screen features the freshly released trailer for the Ratchet & Clank PS4 game that’s coming to steal all your productivity. (Be sure to adjust your calendar and entire life accordingly.) Showcasing thrilling action, sly invention and the irrepressible charm of the series’ better offerings, color us optimistic on how this return is going to shake out. We’ll also sneak in a gentle reminder that we’re only a few years removed from the last game, so the stakes aren’t exactly at The Force Awakens levels.
“PLAY THE GAME BASED ON THE MOVIE BASED ON THE GAME” screams a blast of ALL CAPS promotional text that understands how this year’s game/movie rollout could be seen as a bit confusing.
Ratchet & Clank (the game) will be all gussied up and ready to go for North American PS4s on April 12 with PAL region gamers waiting an additional week. Meanwhile, Ratchet & Clank (the movie) is earmarked for an April 26 release date. We won’t judge if you want to revisit previous instalments of the game in the name of “research.”
