Ratchet & Clank revealed

A new game from the creators of Spyro the Dragon is in the works for the PlayStation 2.

The official UK PlayStation site has revealed that Insomniac Games, the creator of the Spyro the Dragon series, is currently working on a new action game called Ratchet & Clank for the PlayStation 2. In the game, players will take control of a batlike creature named Ratchet and a small robotic character named Clank who clings to Ratchet's back. Clank will be able to use a number of mechanical devices such as a helipack to help propel Ratchet to different areas of the environment. Ratchet will start out with a wrench as his primary weapon, but players will gain access to 35 weapons over the course of the game, including flamethrowers, bomb gloves, and a bolt blaster. In order to secure these items, Ratchet will have to pay for them using the bolts that can be collected in each level.

Ratchet & Clank is scheduled for release at the end of 2002. Screenshots are from the official UK PlayStation site.
