Ratchet & Clank’s Full Frontal Assault on Vita Begins Next Week


Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault came out last November on PS3. I bought it months ago for my birthday, but still haven’t so much as cracked the case open yet because I’ve been waiting for the Vita version so I can take full advantage of the whole cross-play/cross-save thing. As a lover of all things Ratchet & Clank, it’s been a long, painful wait.

Thankfully, the wait is finally over. Almost.

The Vita version of Full Frontal Assault is scheduled for PSN release next week, on May 21st. Players with a retail PS3 copy will be able to download the game and transfer it to the Vita from the “Disc Benefits” XMB menu, while purchasers of the digital version will be able to freely download the game to the Vita straight from the PlayStation Store. New PSN Store shoppers altogether can nab both versions for the price of one through the wonders of cross-buy.


As a thank-you bonus for the wait, Sony and Insomniac will also be making Ratchet: Deadlocked HD available to download for free for those who buy Full Frontal Assault. Other than Full Frontal Assault, Deadlocked is the only Ratchet game I still haven’t played. I’ll be all over this bonus freebie.

In other Full Frontal Assault news, a new game update has been released today adding a new map, Molonoth Fields, and a new match type, 2v2 Full Frontal Assault, to the game’s multiplayer mode. Both are free, and both are exclusive to the PS3 version. DLC customers can now also pick up character skin packs for $1.99 each, including Monsters, Intergalactic Foot Soldiers, and Plushy.
