Today SCEA Product Marketing Manager Jefferson Dong has confirmed that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time for PlayStation 3 will be available in the U.S. on October 27, 2009.
To quote: We're happy to officially announce (and yes, this is official), that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time will be available in the U.S. on Tuesday, October 27. Check out the new packfront below.
If that's not enough, we're offering some cool Ratchet & Clank goodies for those who pre-order their copy of the game. Here's a highlight of some of the items you'll receive when you pre-order Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time from participating retailers:
'Discovery Package' - Explore the Insomniac Moon with a special level that resembles the layout of Insomniac Games' studio offices. A fan favorite, the Moon is filled with content that didn't quite make the final game, sort of like deleted scenes on DVDs. You can earn this unlockable on your own, but Insomniac certainly won't make it easy for ya!
'Power Package' - Up your arsenal with an exclusive weapon skin for one of Ratchet's weapons along with extra hit points and Ratchet's brand new Cryo Mine Glove.
'Bolt Package' - Bolster your bolt count with 5,000 free bolts care of Ratchet's most bolt-centric power-ups, the Bolt Magnetizer and Box Basher.
'Space Package' - Drift off into space with an exclusive hot rod skin for Ratchet's ship, the Aphelion, along with 5,000 free bolts and an exclusive Ratchet & Clank PlayStation Home Avatar skin
For those of you attending PAX this week, a quick reminder to stop by the Unicorn Theatre on Friday, September 4 from 1:30-2:30 p.m. You'll be treated to a panel presentation by Insomniac's Creative Director Brian Allgeier on the history of Ratchet & Clank weapons, as well as the unveiling of a few new ones.
Also, make sure to tune into GTTV on Spike this Thursday at 12:30 am for an all-new special cinematic unveil. For those who miss the show, check it out this weekend at GameTrailers.com.
We have a lot more in the pipeline for the weeks ahead, so please stay tuned!
