Ratchet & Clank is only a few weeks away from making its debut on PlayStation 4, so to make sure that you’re up to speed with the game’s story, here’s a trailer dedicated to just that.
Ratchet & Clank is a sort of reboot of the series, a retelling of the duo’s origin story being told both through a brand new game and a movie. Both of which are set to complement each other. The movie will focus more on character development and the game will focus more on the action.
It’s a game based on a movie based on a game, according to Insomniac Games. And although both the movie and the game tell the same story and offer the same action, the game differs slightly thanks to it being narrated by Captain Copernicus L. Qwark, so you’ll hear the story through Qwark’s “skewed self-serving version of events”.
“We’re hoping when you fire up Ratchet & Clank, you’ll feel the rush you felt the first time you played an R&C game. But we’re going beyond that nostalgia with a gorgeous Ratchet & Clank that holds up to modern standards, and is a fitting debut for the franchise on PS4. We wanted to tell the ultimate version of Ratchet & Clank’s origin story, completely synced up with the feature film,” explained James Stevenson, Community Lead at Insomniac Games.
Ratchet & Clank the game launches on PlayStation 4 on April 22, Ratchet & Clank the movie launches in theatres on April 20.
