Insomniac's diminutive robot sidekick steps into the limelight with his own PSP adventure next month.
In 2006, Sony produced a critical hit for the PlayStation Portable by splitting up Naughty Dog's dynamic duo Jak and Daxter and giving the series' sidekick his own adventure. The company is hoping lightning strikes twice with a solo adventure for the sidekick of its other famed tandem, Ratchet & Clank.
It won't be long before Sony finds out if the plan works, as a post on the official PlayStation blog this week confirms Secret Agent Clank will be infiltrating stores for the PSP June 17.
Clank's first solo outing is being developed by High Impact Games, creators of the first PSP Ratchet & Clank game, 2007's Size Matters. In the game, Ratchet has apparently turned to crime, and it's up to Clank to clear his friend's name. While Clank is the focus of the game, players will also get the chance to take control of the series' fraudulent hero Captain Qwark, among others.

Looking forward to this one. High Impact Games just keeps pumping out better and better PSP titles. Even MGS4 can't keep me from this, lol.
I own a DS and I'm looking at getting a PSP. Given the amount of awesome stuff coming to PSP - and I love the R&C and FF series - consider it done. The Clank missions in R&C: Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal rocked. FF7 was one of the greatest RPGs of all time - I beat it on PS1. So Crisis Core is on my radar as well.
Definitely looking forward to this game, huge fan of the Ratchet and Clank series, will for sure buy this one.
