Here’s your fun transmedia moment for the day, Insomniac Games announced a new Ratchet and Clank game that is based on the upcoming movie that is based on the original video game.  Got that? 

In a blog post over at the Official PlayStation blog former Gaming Nexus writer and current Insomniac Games Community Lead James Stevenson provides the skinny on the new game:

“We knew early on that we didn’t want to just up-res Ratchet & Clank for PS2. We started out thinking of Ratchet & Clank on 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). We envisioned a curated Ratchet & Clank experience that borrowed from the spirit of the classic PS2 games 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 graphical prowess of PS4. Throw in James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet, and you have a new beginning.”

They also released this trailer for the game which shows off what a beautiful game they have created as well as showing off some signature new weapons including the pixelator which turns enemies into sixteen bit caricatures.  If the trailer isn’t enough for you be sure to check out this preview footage which contains eight glorious minutes of gameplay footage.  The game will be available in Spring 2016.
