Hard as is it may be to believe, this year marks the tenth anniversary of the Ratchet & Clank series. It feels like only yesterday that we were taking to fields of battle, wrench in one hand, gun in another, and robot on our back, for the first time. R&C‘s mix of platforming, puzzles, and gunplay has proven a potent one and its remains a favorite of many, myself included. Now, in addition to the upcoming HD collection of the original classics that started it all, Insomniac Games today has revealed that they are working on a new R&C game that will be sure to set fans hearts aflutter.
Titled Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, the game will be a download only title released exclusively for PS3 via PSN as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations this year. Not much has been revealed about the game yet but Ted Price, the CEO of Insomniac Games, did dole out the following tidbits:
Full Frontal Assault will actually mark the second time Insomniac has gone the download only route with the series. Though in the case of that game, 2008′s Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty, the last Lombax was forced to go solo, bereft of his robot buddy, due to various plot reasons. Booty was a fun, if somewhat slight, four hour diversion and it will be interesting to see if FFA can match or even exceed its predecessor. Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is due out on PS3 via PSN this fall.
