Ratchet & Clank: HD Trilogy compiles the first three games from the game series of the same, remastered and revitalised in incredible HD quality exclusively for the PS3. This trilogy was developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony, and includes Ratchet & Clank (originally released in 2002), Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando (originally released in 2003), and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (originally released in 2004), all originally created and released for the PlayStation 2.

The Ratchet & Clank series allows you to traverse around the galaxy in these innovative, vibrant, and incredibly fun sci-fi action games that incorporate both platform and shooter genre qualities in order to get the most out of the world and the weapons. The series includes the ability to purchase unique weapons, items, and unlock gadgets the further you progress throughout the game, as well as includes the feature of the upgrade system (in the second and third games) via the experience you earn from killing enemies, or via the collection of hidden Gold Bolt and regular bolt items (in the first game).

Ratchet & Clank: Step into the shoes of our mechanic protagonist Ratchet, an anthropomorphic creature called a Lombax, who desires nothing more than to explore the galaxy and visit new worlds. The evil super villain Chairman Drek of the Blarg race is planning on stealing pieces from other planets in order to make his own, eradicating these planets in the process. Join Ratchet and his robot fugitive friend Clank on their many adventures, as they attempt to save the galaxy from Drek.

Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando: Ratchet and Clank are hired by Abercrombie Fizzwidget, head honcho of the company Megacorp, and tasked to find a biological experiment creature called a Protopet that was stolen from the company's labs. Upon finding the thief, Ratchet and Clank discover that the thief was trying to save the world, as the Protopet is a dangerous predator awaiting mass production and designed to wreak havoc across the galaxy. Can you stop Fizzwidget in time and save the universe from these blue fuzzball menaces?

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal: Ratchet and Clank join forces once more in order to take on the nefarious robotic madman Dr. Nefarious, who is hell bent on destroying all biological life in the galaxy, via extermination or transforming them into robotic versions of themselves. Facing up against Dr. Nefarious' vast armies of Tyhrranoids, and having Clank captured by the super villain himself, this could be our pair of unlikely heroes' toughest adventure yet!


Features Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Locked & Loaded and Ratchet & Clank 3. Not only are all three remastered in full 1080p HD by Idol Minds but there’s 720p 3D, trophies and number 3′s online multiplayer is also included.

Ratchet & Clank HD Trilogy will reportedly support 60 FPS, trophies and multiplayer support for up to eight players.

The first three Ratchet and Clank games have been remastered in HD for the PlayStation 3, in this latest HD collection.

Not only will they look a lot better than they did on your PS2, the games also have trophy and 3D support.

Remember the 8 player multi-player in R&C 3? Yep, that’s still there too!

The Ratchet And Clank Trilogy – Coming May 2012

It’s amazing that it has been almost ten years since the release of the original Ratchet & Clank on PlayStation 2. A lot has changed since 2002, but your loyalty to our furry Lombax and his faithful robot companion has endured. As we reach the 10th Anniversary of Ratchet & Clank, we wanted to commemorate the achievement of the Ratchet & Clank saga.

Today, we’re delighted to announce the Ratchet & Clank 10th Anniversary Celebration, which also simultaneously addresses the biggest current request from our fans: The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy. This will contain Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Locked & Loaded and Ratchet & Clank 3 – all remastered by Idol Minds, working closely with our team at Insomniac.

In addition to a full 1080p HD remaster, 720p 3D support of all three games and the inclusion of three platinum trophies, we’re happy to confirm that the online competitive multiplayer from Ratchet & Clank 3 will be included. Now you can check out the acclaimed multiplayer mode that many of you didn’t get to experience the first time on PlayStation 2. Best of all, The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy will be available in just over two months, on May 16th, 2012.

We’re so excited that Sony has worked to give our original Ratchet & Clank PlayStation 2 adventures the HD remaster treatment. Stay tuned in the coming months for more on the Ratchet & Clank 10th Anniversary Celebration, as well as more details, screenshots and footage as we near the release of The Ratchet & Clank Trilogy.
