So, what is Ratchet Galaxy ?
I will admit, both TV spots show a bit too much "sheep." Add that to the cheezy beat-boxing scene at the end, and you'll feel like Qwark does right now!
On a positive note, we do get to see more of characters like Elaris, Grimroth Razz, Cora, Drek, and Nefarious. The second clip takes on the cliche of having each character say "Ratchet" and "Clank" every second.
One thing I did not expect was to see Dallas Wannamaker, Juanita's news partner, get a scene. Aside from the fact that he's bald, his look is very much the same from the original, in Deadlocked. In fact, his voice actor may have made a return.
Ratchet and Clank certainly kick one villian's asteroid in these TV spots: Dr. Nefarious! He is seen not only armed with a Sheepinator, and an Alpha Disruptor, but also a RYNO IV!
It is possible that these TV spots will be shown during the Super Bowl as well, so for those of you willing watch The Panthers beat the Broncos in a tragic victory, you may want to tune in to that. For more news the Ratchet and Clank Movie, as well as the game, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.
2016 is finally here, and that means Ratchet and Clank will soon blast into theaters and PS4s around the world! There has been movie trailers for Greece, Croatia, and most recently, Germany. Germany's trailer was also accompanied by 6 new Ratchet and Clank screenshots from the movie!
This first image shows The Galactic Rangers posing with their blasters, and Clank giving off a smug expression. Interestingly enough, Cora and Brax are in the same pose from the Hungarian movie poster.
Everyone gets a combuster--apparently. Captain Qwark and his Cronk-like Rangers head into battle on Aleero city!
In this image, we get to see Clank learning that he's a defect. A wireframe model of him is shown, which includes the jetboots from the movie trailer. There is also a warbot wireframe model on the screen.
Chairman Alanzo Drek is plotting his next move, while Qwark is behind him. It will prove interesting whether or not Qwark has allied himself with Drek, or is actual a hero this time. There are dozens of planets inside Drek's headquarters, one of which looks like Oxron, the blargian homeworld.
This image shows a pile of Blarg stuffed into an escape pod, by the look of things. It's amazing how little Drek resembles them.
In the last image, Cora is holding a robot minion upside-down, probably for interrogation. Ratchet, Clank, Qwark, and Brax watch the fun, but it seems that Brax may be injured. There are 5 other images that aren't new, but are in high-def.
There is also a new PS4 screenshot of Ratchet swimming under water to avoid a Sharkagator on Pokitaru. Insomniac Games will be at PAX South in San Antonio, TX, possibly to show off the Ps4 RaC game.

2015 has finally come to a close, and despite the fact that the Ratchet and Clank Movie/Ps4 game did not come this year, hardcore fans like you and me finally got to catch a huge glimpse of what the game and film have to offer! In fact, more news happened this year than any other year for our favorite duos!
As for news about release dates worldwide, Brazil has confirmed that the Ratchet and Clank Movie will premier on May 5th. Both Poland and Hungary have the Ratchet and Clank Movie trailer in their respective languages.
In addition, Hungary also has a new poster for the movie. While Ratchet and Clank are edited in cheaply, Qwark, Cora, and Brax have new poses. They are accompanied by Fongoid and Tharpod children, as seen in the trailer. Mr. Zurkon also gets his debut on the poster...3 times! And if you look real close, you notice a sheep in the background.
What a year it has been! And 2016 is set to be even better! Not only does the movie have a worldwide release, but the PS4 game comes to the USA on April 12th, in less than 4 months. Given the extra polish time, Insomniac is sure to make this one of the best Ratchet and Clank games yet! Here's to hoping for a wonderful year, courtesy of Kevin Munroe's weekly RaC instagram posts. Thank you all, and have a qwarktastic new year!
One of the 3 levels for the Ratchet and Clank Ps4 game that were featured at the Playstation Experience was Pokitaru. Two of Insomniac's biggest fans, Division-ten and KBABZ recorded a full playthrough of the level. Enjoy!
Chairman Drek's new planet needs water, and the Blarg are syphoning it from Pokitaru's water generators! Ratchet and Clank must hurry before the Blarg suck the planet dry.
It is here that Ratchet and Clank meet Felton Razz, the twin brother of Grimroth. The two used to live in Polaris, but moved to the Solana Galaxy, and parted ways. One thing's for sure: the resemblance is uncanny!
Two weapons have been added to Ratchet's arsenal: The Buzz Blades and the Proton Drum. The Proton Drum's design looks like a Thundersmack and a Pixelator combined into one. It fires a grav bomb similar to Clank's bombs, that zaps any enemy within it's reach! It also unleashes a proton-pulse similar to the Mangler from Into The Nexus.
The Buzz Blades, on the other hand, fire quite slowly, and thus aren't as powerful as in other games. This is now the 9th weapon from Tools of Destruction that is also in the Ps4 game. Design-wise, it remains the same. The Buzz Blades will also be the Ratchet and Clank movie.
Swimming gameplay finally returns, but is relatively limited: Ratchet can only go underwater a short time before he loses breath. Clank's hydropack activates automatically, indicating that he may already come installed with it.
Having defeated all ground enemies, Ratchet and Clank must destroy the Hydroharvestors. To do this, he'll need an upgraded weapons system for his ship. Fortunately, Big Al is here to help! Ratchet and Clank apparently met Big Al back on Aleero, indicating that Clank's helipack might be installed by him. Since Clank never used his helipack in the Veldin gameplay, this would further that theory.
Big Al also asks Ratchet and Clank how his "m'lady Cora" is doing, for a humorous bit. Division-ten said that Big Al is either voiced by Chris Hatfield, or someone trying to sound like him. This information will probably be revealed later on. Also in the bar, was a Fongoid, a Tharpod, and a little creature that looks a lot like Susie, from All 4 One. Insomniac Games has never shyed away from over-using Ps3 assets.
KBABZ also played Aleero City, which has a few updates to the level and gameplay. For one, down below the level is a platform with bolt crates, indicating that Ratchet and Clank probably visited there beforehand. Graphically, it looked a lot shinier, and some dialogue was changed for the train station. Perhaps the most interesting change was the control scheme for Clank's helipack. Just pressing R1 makes Ratchet high-jump, and R1 + the joystick makes Ratchet long-jump. No longer does the player have to press X to jump like that!
This may not be the only change to the gameplay, as VITTI hints, the quick-select may change too.

During the much-anticipated PlayStation Experience, Ratchet and Clank got a new gameplay trailer, and a release date for the ps4 game: April 12, 2016!
The game starts with a scene from the movie, where Ratchet discovers a crashed shuttle, and rescues a tiny robot from the wreckage. He names the robot "Clank," and their adventure begins here!
The opening shot of Veldin is quite gorgeous: filled with bolt crates, heliogrubs, robots, and The Blarg! Qwark narrates throughout the gameplay, and mentions how the blarg were instrumental in the lombax's extinction--but don't worry, that line was scrapped, as one Insomniac explained.
The aiming system from the Ps2 games has returned! Now Ratchet can lock onto enemies quicker, and more precisely. Nanotech upgrades have also returned, with the same functionality as Into the Nexus. Ratchet and Clank run into a "Dropship of doom," and chase the blarg out of their home! It is here that Ratchet meets Grimroth, and takes Clank in to repair him.
As Ratchet fixes Clank's leg, Clank warns Ratchet of an evil plot being devised by Chairman Drek. Ratchet says he can help--after all, he's friends with the Rangers...sort of. Clank asks him why he wasn't in any of the pictures (even though he was in one), and Ratchet shows him his ship. One of the pictures shows a 7-year-old Ratchet with a gap tooth standing next to some Galactic Rangers!
Together, they will team up with Qwark to destroy Chairman Drek!
But enough about Veldin, what other levels will be shown? Judging by the image below, it looks like Kerwan and Pokitaru will be shown too, with some new cutscenes from the latter. An instagram post shows Ratchet fighting off a telepathopus with a new weapon called "The Proton Drum!"

Ratchet himself also encourages us to #GiveActually to Starlight Children's Foundations in an instagram post!
