Ratchet and pals get the movie trailer treatment in the newest trailer for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and Insomniac certainly did the four series favorites justice with a genuinely funny look at the characters. There has not been an influx of news about the latest Ratchet and Clank game, so it is nice to see the furry Lobmax and his robot pal back in action.
We have also seen a gameplay trailer, but this most recent trailer shows off a few mini games, of what will undoubtedly be an abundance, that will apparently be sprinkled throughout the title – hopefully keeping players entertained and on their toes during extended gaming sessions. The sequel to Borderlands has only recently been announced, and although Bordernland 2 is a prequel to a fantastic multiplayer shooter, variety is not likely to be its strong suit. All 4 One is taking a much more dynamic approach to the multiplayer shooter.
Check out some of the fun All 4 One has in store with the trailer Sony showed off at Gamescom 2011:
Typical Ratchet and Clank-style third-person shooter gameplay also makes an appearance in the trailer, indicating this will be more than just a spin-off of the main series. One problem that mascot characters always have on the major consoles is supersaturation. Mario has had his hands in every sport, brawler and mini-game fueled frenzy imaginable – some more successful than others. Insomniac seems to understand that the characters alone will not make this a day one purchase for wary PS3 gamers.
Which hero or villain is going to be your go-to character when the game launches this Fall? Just to let everyone know, I call Qwark.
Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One releases on October 18th, 2011 exclusively for the PlayStation 3.
