Everyone’s favorite Lombax and his trusty, sarcastic android are back in action with today’s new gameplay trailer for Ratchet & Clank, Insomniac Games’ hotly-anticipated PS4 reboot.
Due to make a beeline for Sony’s console in mid-April, the studio is aiming to overhaul the very first entry in the sci-fi franchise, only with “modern controls, new planets, new and improved gameplay, all-new boss fights, and an updated arsenal.”
Perhaps more than anything, ludicrous weaponry is the one thing that helped separate Ratchet & Clank from its platforming peers, and we’re pleased to report that the snippet above arrives guns blazing. It’s taken from Planet Novalis, with Aridia and Kerwan also receiving the spotlight – regardless of where the titular duo are exploring, the environments and character animations are something to behold.
Ratchet & Clank will deploy on PlayStation 4 come April 12, lending you plenty of time to get reacquainted with the finest heroes in all the galaxy before Sony’s animated feature opens in theaters the following week. Yes, April is shaping up to be a massive month for the dormant series, and you can check in with the pixelated revival via the gallery below.
