New Secret Agent Clank Details

Also from today is a post from Frank Simon, Secret Agent Clank’s Senior Producer. The reveal at TGS was shy on the details, so it’s good to get some additional feedback from the developers. Here’s the meat of it:

“One cool feature we showed off was Clank-fu, a full action move set for Clank as he takes on the ninjas, guardian robots and other nasties in his pursuit to free Ratchet – who is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. We also showed a new line of gadgets and devices and rhythm gameplay where Clank dodges and weaves through a laser field. One of my favorite sections so far is the boss fight with Jack where the player gets to play as Qwark. It’s about time that the big guy put his money where his mouth is. High Impact has done a great job of listening to the R&C fanbase and letting them play what they have always wanted to play. I’ve included a couple of shots from the stuff we showed for those who weren’t at the show (one above and below).”

I don’t know if I’m convinced about the rhythm sections. I love rhythm games, but they never seem to work out so well outside of their genre. Glorified QTEs for all that I can fathom. Still, finally having a Clank-centric game with plenty of combat is great. Though we’ve yet to get into R&C Future, it seemed that he had become more and more marginalized with each of the PS2 iterations. Let’s just hope that they make this game uniquely Clank’s, as he always played a little bit differently than Ratchet. He needs to be able to do his own thing!

  1. I hope it’s a great game. So far, the only things that have inspired me to purchase a PS3 are “LittleBigPlanet” and “Metal Gear Solid 4”.
