Billed as an epilogue to the R&C Future saga (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, and A Crack in Time), the single player platformer was announced last week for release on PS3 this holiday, both in stores and as a PSN download priced at $29.99.
The story sees Ratchet and Clank lost in an abandoned sector of deep space, where they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe.
Creator Insomniac Games has said the title will introduce a bunch of crazy new weaponry and gadgets, while gravity is one of the game's key themes.
The Ratchet & Clank series made its debut on Vita with the release of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault in May. Featuring cross-save and cross-play support for the co-op and competitive multiplayer modes, it was originally planned to launch alongside the PS3 version last year.
It was announced in April that a Ratchet & Clank movie is headed to the big screen in 2015. Blockade Entertainment and animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment are producing the PlayStation franchise's first cinematic release, while Insomniac will also play a role in its development.
