Ratchet & Clank Collection Confirmed

Ratchet & Clank is an enduring PlayStation franchise that absolutely deserves a high-definition collection.

And as it turns out, the rumors and semi-official news was all true: In celebration of the dynamic duo's 10th anniversary, Sony has announced the Ratchet & Clank Collection.

It includes Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, all remastered by Idol Minds, a team that is "working closely" with original series developer, Insomniac. The Collection boasts beautiful 1080p HD, 3D support, plus three Platinum Trophies; one for each title. As an additional bonus, they're tossing in online multiplayer for the latest of the three games, Up Your Arsenal, which is great news for those who want to get everything they can out of the new R&C experience.

The Ratchet & Clank Collection is slated to release this fall in North America. It'll be available in the spring in Europe but that's because they've got "something very special planned" for the North American fans. Any guesses as to what it could be? What more could we ask for, really? This is one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved franchises of the past ten years!

As an Aussie who has been waiting for this announcement since the PS3 came out I'm gonna be pissed if this special bonus is something we can't get our hands on at some point.
I am as big a fan as anyone in North America and I don't think i should be penalised for living elsewhere.
But that's the only problem i have with this release and May 17 can't come fast enough.

The last Squarsoft game man.

I'm not sure even an HD collection of Shenmue would get me though, I went back to play those games that were so revolutionary at the time and they are just soooo dated it's hard to make the transition. We need a part 3.

Finally!! This is the HD collection I wanted most.

I hope we eventually get a Deadlock remake as well (PSN download or something) Even if it is the worst of the four.

D1P for me. Actually times 2. I will get the one from Europe and the US one - assuming that the something special is a remastered deadlocked or size matters. Either way that at least 6 platinums I will be after....

Don't get your hopes up. SCEE released WKC2 nearly 3 months ahead of the US release, and it really turned out to be a case of SCEA didn't care to publish it and had to find a willing partner.

Sometimes I think that SCEA is now run by morons, Kaz should bring someone in who knows something about games.

@Highlander

Maybe WKC2 wasn't as financially probable to them (SCEA), how did the first one do commercially, and how did WKC2 stack up with D3?

I'm sure your well aware that the Euro is much better off against the Yen then the dollar is, so American publishing branches are much more hesitant to jump on niche Japanese titles. Similar to the situation you see with Nintendo of America, and their whole situation with the Big 3 (Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower).

I was kind of skeptical when I saw D3 was publishing the second installment, now I wonder if Level 5 will ever collaborate with Sony again in the future.

Sony owns the IP for WKC2, Level 5 will collaborate with them. WKC1 sold fairly well in the US, much better than it did in Europe. WKC2 sold far better in the US than in Europe. The point I was making was that SCEA makes a lot of very odd decisions. and delaying a game for six months after it's release in Europe seems particularly stupid considering a) its a very popular franchise, b) the PS3 is region free so we can import it, and c) If they are holding the game for 6 months just to include an extra game for free, why not sell the initial trilogy at the same time as Europe and then later sell the extra game at a budget price to those that already have the collection? That would appear to make far more financial sense.

I see now, since you put it that way, that definitely makes a lot of sense.

Director Kusuda Yoshiaki already proclaimed the series to be done with after WKC2 though, so if they do collaborate, it will probably be for a different IP.

You up for Dark Cloud 3 Highlander? XD

Is about time. More reasons to keep on buying exclusives over third party games.

As much as I played these 3 games to death on the PS2 .... YES!!! Was hoping for this when Sony and associated devs started bringing HD collections over. Its about time and I am grateful.

The downside... NA has to wait for the fall.

Consolation... They say they have a surprise for us. Hope its a good one.

This is awesome. The R&C series was great. Now, if Sony announces for an HD collection of the Persona series, my life will be complete.

It's out tomorrow and there's still no word on Deadlocked. Disappointing. I'll be picking it up after work anyway.
