Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Attacks PlayStation 3 This Holiday

By Ishaan . May 30, 2012 . 12:01pm

To celebrate Ratchet & Clank’s 10-year anniversary, Sony are releasing the Ratchet & Clank Collection, which compiles Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, all touched up with HD visuals, trophies, and stereoscopic 3D support.


Today however, Sony announced that, as part of the same celebration, Ratchet & Clank developer, Insomniac, are also working on an entirely new game in the series.


Titled Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, the new game will be released this holiday season as a PlayStation Network title. Sony say that it features the “classic third-person Ratchet & Clank camera” with familiar weapons and online multiplayer. No further details have been announced thus far.

  • importing EU version because they get theirs on physical and digital while the US gets only the digital version. same thing happened with Quest for Booty and also might add that One Piece Pirate Warriors is only being released on PSN for US.

    • Barrit

      I imported Quest for Booty, so I’ll probably do the same thing here as well. I didn’t know that about One Piece, thanks for the heads up!

    Cant wait, as I’m always up for more Ratchet!  Hopefully it’ll be longer than the other Downloadable Ractchet, Quest for Booty.  The game was awesome, it was just too short.

    This is exciting, as I’m a HUGE R&C fan.  I just hope it’s more like Tools of Destruction and less like All 4 One.  All 4 One was a decent game, but it wasn’t nearly as good as the rest of the series.

    Up Your Arsenal is my favorite.  I do hope they bring the Lavagun back in Full Frontal Assault, as it’s my favorite weapon in the series.

    • Anime10121

      Yes, Oh GOD YES.  All 4 One is the only recent Ratchet game that I found completely unplayable.  I was hyped because multiplayer in Ratchet sounded interesting but the way it was actually implemented felt SO wrong.

      • GibbRS

        Agreed.  I can see what they were trying to accomplish, but it just didn’t feel right to me, somebody who has day 1 purchased every other Ratchet game.  I feel Nefarious was a poor choice for a 4th character as well.  They should have had Sasha, Big Al, or the Plumber.  Sasha would have worked best, as they needed some female representation in the game.

        • Given the recent games?  Talwyn.  Was really hoping for Talwyn.  :(

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Digital is the future. Curious how long this one will be. May get it.

  • usagi_san

    Europe and other PAL regions will be getting a physical version (renamed as QForce). 


    EDIT: bluejuan85 already mentioned it. I really do need to check ALL the comments before commenting myself.

  • I hope to see Captain Qwark again. A Ratchet & Clank game wouldn’t as funny without Qwark.

  • I’m sad to see that it’s a digital game. Quest for Booty was too short.

  • MrRobbyM

    Oh goodie. Hope it’s not another All 4 One type game.

  • haqua

    Scorpion Flail.. I need that baby back in my LIFE.

    Anyway, I’ll be buying the Collestion and… pfffft. Full Frontal Assault. Oh, the innuendo titles never end… 

  • Just looking at the innuendo proves that this game is classic. I hate Sony Europe for changing the title, though… especially when the EU is more tolerant to sexuality or nudity.
