It’s been a long, long time coming, but Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault, Insomniac’s newest entry in the popular PlayStation franchise, is finally about to make its way to the Vita. Originally slated to launch alongside the PS3 version last November, the Vita version, handled by developer Tin Giant, has been confirmed for release on the PlayStation Store Tuesday, May 21.
Like many of Sony’s current cross-platform titles, Full Frontal Assault supports the Cross-Buy feature, meaning that anyone who already purchased the PS3 version will get the Vita version for free, and save data can be transferred between the two systems. A remastered port of the PS2 game Ratchet: Deadlocked will also finally make its debut on the store at some point. As an apology for the prolonged wait, Sony is offering a free copy of Deadlocked to owners of Full Frontal Assault at no cost as well.
In additional news, a new patch is launching for Full Frontal Assault that contains both a new map for multiplayer, based on the Molonoth fields from A Crack In Time, as well as a new 2v2 mode for hardcore players. Additional downloadable skin packs are also planned for release in the near future.
