Ratchet & Clank sequel ships

SCEA announces the North American release of Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando.

Sony Computer Entertainment America has today announced the North American release of Insomniac Games' Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando. The game, which is the sequel to last year's Ratchet & Clank, sees its heroes being kidnapped and then employed by a megacorporation to investigate the theft of one of the company's most promising experimental products.

"Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando is by and far one of the most action-intensive and extraordinarily thrilling games to hit the market this holiday season," said Ami Blaire, director of product marketing at Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We are thrilled to be working with one of the most talented and imaginative teams in the industry as Insomniac Games continues to revolutionize the category with characters that are full of life and exciting gameplay that's fun for the entire family."

"Our goal from the beginning of this project was to rejuvenate the platform genre," added Ted Price, president of Insomniac Games. "With Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, we've taken significant steps away from traditional platformer design. By adding elements that have previously only existed in shooters and role-playing games, we're interested in not only creating a bigger and better gameplay experience, but in doing our part to keep the platformer genre alive, healthy, and evolving."
