Lombax and robot duo return to stores this fall in the PS3 conclusion to Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty.
After a dalliance in the world of downloadable content, Ratchet & Clank are returning to retailers. Sony announced today that Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time will arrive in stores for the PlayStation 3 this fall.
A Crack in Time will conclude the story sparked in 2007's Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction and continued last year in the pair's downloadable debut, Ratchet and Clank Future: Quest for Booty. The game will follow the lombax Ratchet as he attempts to save his robotic sidekick, and Sony promises to reveal both their origins and ultimate destinies during the course of the game, teasing the biggest breakup since the Beatles.
A Crack in Time will include the series' signature focus on creative weaponry, with developer Insomniac Games currently running a contest to design a part of the game's new arsenal. In addition to having his or her weapon included in the game, the contest winner will get a life-size replica and a trip to meet the development team and unveil the weapon at the San Diego Comic-Con.

O yaa just like it said at the end of Quest for Booty fall 2009. Insomniac make this a crack of FUN.
Ooooooh, can't wait! Ratchet and Clank TOD and Booty were awesome! Just hope Insomniac pulls it off again...
"the biggest breakup since the Beatles" rofl xD awesomely said! dammit! now i have to go buy that ps3 and R&C: ToD before this gets out!!!
Insomniac is my fav. developers, i love all there games. im a huge ratchet and clank fan, and i cant wait for this. day 1 buy for me. cant wait til the fall.
THIS IS SO AWSOME,but will the company being the game back to the psn or to retail stores this fall. I didn't sign up for the psn, but I might this year.
So happy to hear the R&C series is returning to the retail stores. Downloading on my PS3 was very difficult and took hours. On top of that, I do not have a CD to add to my collection.
Cant wait!! please say they dont break up ratchet and clank. They are my favorite characters of all time pls nooo!
i havent played quest for booty, but i thought toos of destruction sucked ass. and was no where as good as any of the PS2 gmes.
The Contest sounds really cool. I can't wait until this game comes out this fall. I've been a big fan of the series and have been anticipating the conclusion to the series.
It is a time travelling platformer like Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I wonder if this will rival it for best platformer ever made???
This is great news! Hopefully Trophies will be in this one... multiplayer like Up your Arsenal would be nice too!
@abuabed I say that every year. Lol. I'm always thinking "How could next year even compare to this year?" and somehow each year tops the other.
w00t!!! I've been waiting impatiently for this announcement, R&C is one of my favorite franchises, I can't wait. Now I have to buy Quest for Booty.
Tools of Destruction was the reason I bought a PS3. Can't wait for this. I also hope they do what Singstar did and allow you to play PS2 Ratchet & Clank games on the PS3.
