Ratchet & Clank PS4 Release Joins The Reboot Party

Though E3 2015 has yet to begin, games like Ratchet & Clank can't wait to start the party off right. This game, they suggest, has you "play the game, based on the movie, based on the game!" In this case, that means the game is based on the original Ratchet & Clank, the PlayStation 2 game. This game will be coming to PlayStation 4 exclusively. Have a peek at the first trailer and you'll see why this is no previous-gen piece of work. It's all three dimensional and crazy and whatnot.

This is more than a remake. It's not actually a remake at all. It's a reboot – but better than a reboot. This isn't like Mad Max: Fury Road, because that's not a remake at all. This is Ratchet & Clank, and it's about to burn your eyes out of their sockets. If you're a big Ratchet & Clank fan, at least.

The game is set for release in the year 2016, and it's based on an upcoming CG movie based on the original Ratchet & Clank. If it ever gets made. Which it might.

Whatever.

Not that it super matters, because the 2016 CG movie from Rainmaker and Blockade Entertainment isn't nearly as important as the game, which is going to be neat.

UPDATE: Above you'll see some "direct feed gameplay" from Sony Entertainment and Insomniac Games.
