Ratchet & Clank HD Collection Announced!

Hey everyone,

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 Collection . This will contain Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal – all remastered by Idol Minds, working closely with our team at Insomniac. In addition to a full 1080p HD remaster, and 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 Up Your Arsenal 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.

The collection will release this fall in North America. I know it’s a little bit later than the Spring European release, but it’s because we have something very special planned to celebrate the tenth anniversary, and we’ll share all the details very soon. We’re also working to make a special bonus available for fans who wait in North America, details when we can share!

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 Collection.

    I played UYA’s multiplayer with a friend. I loved it and there were only two peopele playing. I can’t wait to see how awesome it will be with even more people.
    Is there any chance of Gladiator / Deadlocked being released on PSN? My copy broke. I don’t even care if there is no HD or trophies, I just want the game.


    So looking forward to these games on PS3!!!!!

  • opus-v

    I love you guys! I own every Spyro and almost all of the RC games except All 4 One. I’ve been hoping for sometime that you guys would get the first 3 RC games on PSN and in HD and my wish has come true! I can’t wait. Can’t we get it sooner 😉

  • crazyfan1

    Finally I’ve been wanting this game for a long time ever since The Sly Collection !!!!! 😀

  • TheAJD321

    Oh my, I cant believe that this collection will come and Im like so excited now that I finally get to remember when I used to play all the old Ratchet and Clank games back then, and now this is brilliant! 😀 Looking so forward for this to come! Get to experience three classic games again, now on PS3!

  • Eric

    So you finally get this collection out and it has so many glitches that I can’t finish the first game. I thought it might be my disk so I got a new one. Same problem. I haven’t had these problems on my PS2 version.
    Are there any fixes
