Five Insomniacs Discuss the Making of Ratchet and Clank

Love Ratchet and Clank as much as Qwark loves himself? Then watch this livestream event from GNOMON Education! Five Insomniacs discuss the making of Sunset Overdrive and the Ratchet and Clank Ps4 game.

Image utilisateur


Erin Zaneski, a character artist, was able to present many of the characters she helped model for the game. The full image collection will be shown at the bottom of the news post. This is an example of the Rilgar and Kallibo IV robots re-imagined for the ps4. It's a four-step process:
1) re-visit original concept art for character.
2) study original ps2 design of character.
3) create re-imagined concept art design.
4) model the new concept art design.

However, not every character is the same as before. Skidd's Agent turned into a brand-new character called "Shiv Helix." He's a cell-mate in the prison that Qwark broke out of (backstory, perhaps?). He has a robot arm and wears prison garb. Other new characters like the Brain Scientist and Felton Razz were also featured.

Image utilisateur


In addition to character models, Erin also modeled some vehicles for the PS4 game. The Tanker and Hoverboard now have more sleek and refined designs. She said she really wanted to give off the emphasis of looking at an enemy from afar, and recognizing what it is, and how to react to it.

Henrique Naspolini, a senior character artist, modeled Mrs. Zurkon, and the Dropship of Doom. He also showed off different attempts at textures for the ship, and how he was able to get an interior for Mrs. Zurkon.

Image utilisateur


The final character artist, Xavier Coelho-Kostolny, explained the challenges of modeling with his example of Captain Qwark. He had to go from a movie design, to a game design, using different poly-counts. He had problems texturing the eyes and the body in general. He said he worked on a total of nine characters, and 1 ship.

Poland's Ratchet and Clank Movie poster has a very...different translation for the tagline. There is also an Iceland Trailer for the movie, complete with an all-star cast.
Here is the full gallery of images from the livestream.

New Ratchet and Clank Poster and Magazine!

It has been a news-filled week for our two heroes. Rainmaker released the official theater poster for the Ratchet and Clank Movie, and the PlayStation Magazine had some new content for the Ps4 game!

Image utilisateur


The movie poster finally puts James Arnold Taylor and David Kaye's names along with the others--a wish come from for both voice actors. Qwark holds up the Ratchet and Clank title, with Ratchet and Clank on top. Cora and Brax are on either side of them, and Chairman Drek lurks behind menacingly.

Image utilisateur


As for the PS magazine, it has a pretty interesting cover: Qwark is holding up glasses while reading a script, Clank is sitting on a table memorizing his lines, Ratchet is lying on a couch, throwing a paper airplane, and Dr. Nefarious drinks radioactive coffee while looking bummed out.

Image utilisateur


Inside the magazine are two screenshots of planet Veldin during the daytime! Ratchet doesn't have Clank on his back, so it's possible that this is before he meets Clank. Judging by the Galactic Ranger promos surrounding the plateau, it's safe to say Ratchet is trying to meet up with Qwark. There's even a Qwark robot like the one from Metropolis!

Image utilisateur


Ted Price said that his team worked so hard to make sure that this was the best Ratchet and Clank game ever. He also said that he would love to continue the series in this direction if there was enough fan service for it. Having a movie helps too.

Image utilisateur


This image of two Blarg getting blown up seems to indicate that a new weapon could be in play. Perhaps they took a page out of Into The Nexus, and made a grav bomb!

Image utilisateur


What else is new this month? Both the Ratchet and Clank Novel and Movie Reader come out in early February, so unless you want to get blasted with spoilers, I'd advise to stay away from them. For more news on Ratchet and Clank, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.

Insomniac Games and Kevin Munroe interviewed about the Ratchet and Clank Movie

The director of the Ratchet and Clank Movie, Kevin Munroe, was interviewed on USA Today concerning the story of the Ratchet and Clank Movie, and how the new set of characters play into the film. He says it is truly a nostalgic journey for all.

Image utilisateur


Ratchet is a Lombax who thinks he's the last of his kind. He feels like he's destined for more than fixing ships, and wants to be a Ranger like his hero, Captain Qwark. Qwark thinks that Ratchet has everything but the right stuff to be a ranger, and shuns him for the beginning of the film.

Image utilisateur


When Ratchet meets Clank, everything changes. Clank is a warbot who malfunctioned, and feels like a defect. However, he is quite smart and has a good heart when it comes to doing the right thing.

Image utilisateur


As for the three new Rangers, Cora, Brax, and Elaris, they begin to take a fondness for Ratchet and Clank. Brax acts as the tough guy, who sees Ratchet as a little brother. Elaris is the tech guru who provides the Rangers with weapons, gadgets, and battle plans.

Image utilisateur


Cora is the female warrior-type who has a huge beef with Ratchet for joining the ranks. Bella Thorne said that her voice tends to be low when voicing characters, but the directors wanted it even lower! She replied, "Ok, we DO want to make sure this is girl though, guys!"

Image utilisateur


James Arnold Taylor says his most beloved part of the movie is that David Kaye, Jim Ward, and Armin Shimmerman get to share the experience with him. Most Hollywood movies tend to use A-list actors as the replacements for main characters, but he was thrilled that they kept their roles for the movie and the Ps4 game.

Image utilisateur


Insomniac Game's very own Ted Price, talks about how they strove to adapt the Ratchet and Clank Movie/game right in an interview with IGN. Partnering up with Rainmaker Entertainment was like a breath of fresh air for them, since they tried to be as honest to the source material as possible. This has been one of their biggest collaborations, even to the point of sharing assets with each other. When asked what other Insomniac franchise they might like to see come to the big screen next, Price was quick to suggest Resistance. Apparently, they came pretty close to making that a reality.

This Thursday, Ratchet and Clank are the main attraction on Playstation's Magazine! Let's hope to find more info about the Ps4 game, which comes out in the USA in almost 2 months! For more news on Ratchet and Clank, stay tuned to Ratchet Galaxy.

Nikos Aliagas voices "Dallas" in Ratchet and Clank Movie (French)

A french animator named "Nikos Aliagas" is providing his voice for "Dallas Wanamaker" in the french Ratchet and Clank movie. You can watch the full clip here.

Image utilisateur


This, of course does not mean that Dallas will have the same voice actor in the english film. From a TV spot last week, it seems Dallas has kept his original voice actor. Only time will tell if Nika Flutterman will return to voice Juanita.

Image utilisateur


The scene seems to take place after Ratchet and Clank saved Qwark and the Galatic Rangers from Victor's army. Qwark, expecting a warm welcome, is surprised to find that Ratchet and Clank are the center of attention. While Ratchet is embracing the audience with cheerful glee, Clank seems to grow suspicious of Qwark, and is worried that Ratchet's fame has gone to his head.

Image utilisateur


Dallas asks Qwark if Ratchet and Clank will join the Galactic Rangers, to which Qwark replies: "Say what?" Based on previous trailers, we know Qwark reluctantly lets Ratchet and Clank join the team.

Image utilisateur


IN OTHER NEWS:
Ratchet and Clank (Ps4) appears on the cover of Playstation Magazine! The new issue will be released this Thursday, just 2 months away before Ratchet and Clank hits PS4's in the USA!

Image utilisateur


Some new gameplay was "unintentionally" shown during Gamestop's tour with Insomniac. In the new Song of the Deep sneek peek, the Ratchet and Clank Ps4 game was being tested by two Insomniacs. The 1st level appears to be Rilgar, noting the lazer prisons and the Ameboids--there was even a gas Tanker! When the level was paused, a small gadget quick-select was seen at the botton left, similar to the one from A Crack in Time. This would indicate that there are only 4 gadgets, one of which is the swingshot.

Image utilisateur


The second screen featured the hybrid of Hoven/Batallia. As Ratchet swingshots onto the battlefield, he activates what looks to be the Bouncer! Unfortunately, it wasn't used, nevertheless, it was nice to get a closer look at what is to come.

Image utilisateur



The Dutch poster for the Ratchet and Clank Movie is taglined with "A Grand Adventure for Two Real Heroes!"

100th News Special: 2 New Ratchet and Clank Movie Clips!

IGN just released two new TV spots for the Ratchet and Clank Movie. You can view them below.
Ratchet and Clank: Sheepinator TV Spot
Ratchet and Clank: Hip Hop TV Spot

Image utilisateur


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!

Image utilisateur


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.

Image utilisateur


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.

Image utilisateur


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!

Image utilisateur


It is possible that these TV spots will be shown during the Super Bowl as well, so for those of you willing watch The Broncos beat the Panthers in an awesome 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.
