Ratchet & Clank Vita game is real and releases this month

Full Frontal Assault

Yes, the Ratchet & Clank game for PlayStation Vita that was supposed to arrive back in November is real, and it's hitting the PlayStation Network on May 21. Soon we'll have proof that mysterious developer Tin Giant actually exists.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for Vita needed about six months of extra polishing, and now it's finally ready for release, according to the PlayStation Blog. The game successfully came to PS3 late last year.

Sony and developer Idol Minds, which worked on the Ratchet & Clank Collection for PS3, are also finishing up Deadlocked HD, a remaster of the PlayStation 2 game Ratchet: Deadlocked.

"For those of you with the retail copy of FFA, you’ll be able to download Deadlocked HD as well as the Vita version of FFA to your PS3 and transfer to your PS Vita," wrote Insomniac Games' community lead James Stevenson. "You can do this by accessing the 'Disc Benefits' option on May 21st. If you downloaded FFA, the PS Vita version and Deadlocked will appear free for you on the PlayStation storefront."

Owners of the PS3 version of Full Frontal Assault can now enjoy a new competitive multiplayer map set in Monolith Fields, a location from previous entry A Crack in Time, and a console-exclusive mode called 2v2 Full Frontal Assault, which appeals to veteran players.

"It eliminates the phases — so you can always capture nodes, build units, and attack the other team’s base," wrote Stevenson. "This results in a more dynamic, more strategic experience that will test players’ skills more than ever before."
