Debonaire Robot Spy Gives PSP a License to Thrill in Secret Agent Clank
Stealthy Gameplay, Spy Themed Storyline, Wacky Gadgets and New Playable Characters Abundant as Clank Takes the Lead Role in New Ratchet and Clank Adventure
Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA) announced today the North American release of Secret Agent Clank, available exclusively for PSP. Developed by High Impact Games, the team behind the highly acclaimed Ratchet & Clank(R): Size Matters, Secret Agent Clank features a story that focuses on Clank as the central character. Delivering trademark Ratchet and Clank "tongue-in-cheek" humor, Secret Agent Clank takes cues from classic spy movies in an adventure that takes Clank to the far reaches of the galaxy to prove the innocence of his best friend, Ratchet.
"Ratchet and Clank has proven to be a witty, well produced franchise with a long lasting legacy of action packed gameplay, out-of-this world weapons, and family friendly humor," said Jeff Reese, director, software marketing, SCEA. "Developer High Impact Games bolsters that legacy with Secret Agent Clank, again bringing innovation to the platform while poking fun at the spy movies we all know and love."
Secret Agent Clank finds dry witted robot Clank as he dons his secret agent persona in order to exonerate Ratchet for a crime he did not commit. For the first time in the Ratchet & Clank series, players have the ability to play as four different characters throughout different portions of the game; Clank, Ratchet, Captain Qwark, and the Gadgebots each with signature styles of gameplay and objectives to achieve. While Clank is on the hunt for information to prove Ratchet's innocence, Ratchet is in prison fighting for survival against criminals which were put there by him. Meanwhile, Captain Qwark is one step behind Clank, arriving to locations and claiming credit for Clank's successes with outlandish stories executed by the player.
Featuring exotic locales suitable for only the classiest of robotic spies, Clank's adventure finds him snowboarding down a comet, engaged in a dance of death with the exotic Countess Lottbolts, competing in a high stakes card game, and discovering the foundry which produces all the bolts for the galaxy. Armed with high tech gadgetry, Clank must subdue enemies twice his size using an arsenal of upgradeable gadgets from cufflink bombs to a blowtorch briefcase.
The independent Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has rated Secret Agent Clank "E10+" for "Everyone 10 and older."
