So, what is Ratchet Galaxy ?
Drek's design has finally been revealed!
...and it looks like he gained some weight (and a few chins!)
It has been an interesting two weeks for Ratchet and Clank fans. Last week, Insomniac games finally broke their silence, and announced that they would be test screening the Ratchet and Clank Movie in LA. Apparently, the screenings were met with great applause, and today, some lucky fans get to see the Ratchet and Clank Movie at a private screening in LA!
In other news, Rainmaker Ent. uploaded a youtube video, revealing an updated poster for the Ratchet and Clank Movie.
The poster now shows Qwark cowering behind some rubble, and five military jets (supposedly belonging to the Galactic Rangers) flying overhead.
Cinema Management Group has yet to update the poster on their site, but they did change the Production status to "In Post-Production." Insomniac Games also said that they would be revealing the release date very soon!
Want to see more teases for the Ratchet and Clank Movie? Take a peek at Kevin Munroe's instagram! http://instagram.com/kevmunroe/
Well folks, in an unusual turn of events, someone on tumblr has seen 5 seconds of the Ratchet and Clank movie/game, and posted two images of it on her website.
Mum's the word on how she came by this, but nevertheless, the screenshots show Ratchet talking to Clank while walking on Metropolis! There are many cues to Tools of Destruction's version, such as lamp posts and trees. Hopfully this will indicate some form of a trailer for either the Movie, or the game, very soon!
It's official folks - TJ Fixman, the writer of all the PS3 'Ratchet & Clank' games as well as the upcoming movie is working on the new PS4 game as well. TJ himself announced it on his Twitter page, so if you're a fan of his work, you can already go to the music page and play "Let's Celebrate".
Wanna be a newser?
Yup, sudden loss of computer makes writing for the front page pretty troublesome, not even mentioning the photo editing... That, and I probably won't be able to keep up with the upcoming news due to all the things going on at my school. Someone have to take my place. Could that be you? If you're keeping up with all the info on the series, are good in English and interested in taking the job, contact RatchetBlaster. This is probably my last article here for quite a lot of time, so as a newser (but not a user), I say goodbye to all of you
Kevin Michael Richardson, the voice of Chairman Drek from the first game confirmed he’s not reprising his role in the upcoming movie and (though that’s only speculation) is most likely going to be replaced by a celebrity voice.
That, combined with new design as well as an early tweet from the screenwriter TJ Fixman (“Wait until you guys see what I do with Chairman Drek”) makes me think that the character of Drek might be highly altered, and thus the change of the voice actor might not be just to get a popular name on the poster, but also to fit the “new” Chairman. What do you guys think?
[UPDATE] Michael Bross confirmed he's composing for the game on his Twitter page, however, he's not allowed to reveal any details right now.
Michael Bross composing for the upcoming game
Discussion about which of the series’ composers is the best has been going among the fans for quite a long time. That of course caused endless speculations regarding composer for the upcoming movie and the PS4 game – who’d be the best for the job, who’s most likely going to be picked up and so on. Today, half of the secret has been revealed by none other than Michael Bross, composer for the last three Ratchet & Clank games as well as the Oddworld series. When asked by one of the fans if he’s composing for the Ratchet & Clank movie he replied:
“I’d love to, but Sony has not been in contact with me in regard to the film, though I am in development on the current RC game.”
Who’s composing for the Ratchet & Clank movie is still unknown, though the fact that Bross still haven’t been asked to do the job makes his involvement in it very unlikely.
The final recording session for the Ratchet & Clank movie
The final recording session for the Ratchet & Clank movie took place last week. Official PlayStation Magazine editor Matthew Pellett was a guest in the studio, so we can expect a nice article about the movie soon.
No footage of the game this year?
The PS4 game’s footage is most probably not going to be shown this year, as Insomniac Games is not attending the PlayStation Event in December. When asked about any kind of progress update on IG Forums, one of the Insomniac employees came up with the following statement:
“Development is going great. We are on track for 2015. Game looks really good running in the new engine and on the PS4. Ratchet has a wrench and some weapons that are crazy. Clank is still a robot with a funny laugh.
And that’s it for today, stay tuned for more news and have a qwarktastic day!
