New Ratchet & Clank Gamplay Revealed

Fans of the 3D character driven platformer have been left out in the cold in recent years. With the exception of Nintendo, publishers have not been giving the genre much love. Well the wait, it seems, is nearly over for PlayStation fans. Today on the PlayStation Blog, we have been given our first glimpse of gameplay from the upcoming Ratchet & Clank remake that is being based on the upcoming movie.  According to the post the team behind the remake “didn’t want to just up-res Ratchet & Clank for PS2.” Instead it seems that we are getting and entirely new imagining of our first outing with everyone’s favorite Lombax. More exciting from some, it will be playable at E3 this year! You can view the trailer below.

The trailer itself looks great, and goes a long way to get me excited about playing the game next year. As a long time fan of the franchise, I was bit worried about revisiting the first game so soon after completing it on its PS3 iteration in the HD collection that was released a few years ago. After seeing this new trailer though, my worries have been laid to rest. With new weapons from later games in the series coming forward as well as new ones designed from scratch, it looks like there will be plenty to enjoy! It was also announced that anyone who pre-orders the game will receive fan favorite weapon from Going Commando, the Bouncer. This gun fires a bomb that explodes into several smaller homing bombs.
