Apparently determined to prove Nintendo doesn have the monopoly on family-friendly multiplayer platformers, Insomniac has unveiled brand new footage of its forthcoming spin-off Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, which sees the spacefaring duo team up with cowardly Captain Qwark and arch-nemesis Dr. Nefarious to escape a strange and dangerous new world.
The game new trailer shows the foursome engaging in the kind of running, jumping and shooting for which the series has become known, but there plenty of new ideas on show. It seems the foursome will have to combine forces to solve puzzles and defeat some gargantuan bosses, but theyl also need to use each other to get from place to place. One such sequence shows one character latching onto another to swing from a platform. The trailer shows plenty of the seriestrademark humour, which suggests the jokes haven been lost in the transition from a single-player game to one with a greater focus on co-operative play.
Currently in development at Insomniac new Carolina studio, Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is set to launch exclusively on PlayStation 3 later this year. It currently pencilled in for a allrelease, but wel bring you more concrete information on its launch closer to the due date.
