Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault hits Nov. 27

$20 action game from Insomniac Games comes to PlayStation Store and retail late next month as a Cross Buy title for PS3 and PS Vita.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will expose itself November 27 on the PlayStation Store and at retail for $20, Sony announced today through the PlayStation Blog. When Insomniac Games revealed Full Frontal Assault in May, the game was only expected to release digitally.

Full Frontal Assault takes advantage of Sony's new Cross Buy promotion, whereby those who purchase the PlayStation 3 version will receive the PlayStation Vita iteration for free.

Insomniac describes Full Frontal Assault as a "fun-size" project that is similar in scope to Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty, though the company said the new game boasts more features.

Full Frontal Assault is not the only Ratchet & Clank game to release in 2012. It follows August's Ratchet & Clank Collection, a $30 bundle that includes high-definition versions of the original Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal.

Hmm... I think we need cross play or Transfaring than cross buy, or I hope progress save file can be transfered.

Not only does the first appearance of Ratchet & Clank on the PS Vita sound great, but the Cross Buy promotion makes it a great value.  This one is going on my wishlist.

This comes out on the exact day of my birthday! What a coincidence! Even more so when Zelda: Skyward Sword released only exactly a week before my birthday!

I'm looking forward for this game. Quest for booty was short but fun. I'll buy this for VITA and I hope they will make more for R&C for VITA.

Wtf? I want the next REAL installment of R&C, I don't want these $20 games or co op that has nothing to do with the story -_-

 

What happened Insomniac? CiT was AWESOME.

I just really really enjoyed Carolin and Tom's convo very very much. Those two are hilarious. I say they should do more stuff like this together. Thumbs up for Carolin and Tom, two of my favourite GS reviewers XD

There needs to be more games to play on both for one price.  Then Sony could see sales of both picking up.   This should have been planed and done long ago.  I can only hope that more games from PS1, PSP, PS2 and many older games should come out.

Can't wait for this, and I need to get the collection as well.

Getting a PS3 soon, getting a lot of the collections.

Metal Gear HD 

ZOE HD

Splinter Cell HD

The Ratchet and Clank HD collection.

 

I never got to play Ratchet and Clank though, its why I am starting with the HD collection.  I loved games like Gex (the gecko) Super Mario 64, Banjo Kazooie. I am guessing these are kinda like that?

 

I was also looking into trying that Jax HD collection too!

At least this is finally an R&C game again, not an R or a C or a child's co-op catastrophe.

I like that it's coming to retail. I much prefer that over any DL content for the collection purposes.

Really nice, I can't wait to play it on both PS3 and PS Vita. Finally, another good game to play on PS Vita.

Nice.  My daughter loves these games and I always have playing them too.  Looks like a good buy for the Vita.

 @Alpr1010 Yeah I remember when Insomniac made great games I mean almost every game had a 10 or 9 now I guest this motion controlling has them confused

 @Lach0121 Uhhh, they're sorta like the platforming classics of yore, but with a lot more shooting and explosions, and a dash of ridiculous. Still, there's a heavy emphasis on exploration and platforming and it actually does mesh rather well with the shooting. Overall the R&C games are fantastic titles, and I think you'll find your $30 more than well spent for the HD collection, especially if you haven't played them before.

 @endorbr just buy it for the ps3 if you do that you will get the vita version for free
