Ratchet & Clank will launch for PlayStation 4 on April 12, 2016, Insomniac Games announced during the PlayStation Experience 2015 opening keynote.
“While we originally envisioned this Ratchet & Clank as a reimagining of the PS2 original, it’s much more,” Insomniac Games community manager James Stevenson said on the PlayStation Blog. “It features modern controls, new planets, new and improved gameplay, all-new boss fights, and an updated arsenal. This Ratchet & Clank will remind longtime fans why they first fell in love with the franchise while inviting new players to experience one of PlayStation’s all-time classics as it’s never been seen before.
“The section of the game we showed at PlayStation Experience today includes scenes from the film, as well as all-new gameplay from planet Veldin. You may have noticed that Captain Qwark is narrating the game. While the movie is one version of the events, the game gives you a different take, from everyone’s beloved leader of the Galactic Rangers, Copernicus L. Qwark.”
