Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One release date, box art and pre-order bonuses revealed

It's almost time to dust off those PS Move wands. Sony has nailed down a release date for Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, pegging October 18th as the day Insomniac's tent pole franchise returns to the PS3.

In addition to a drop date, Sony revealed the game's official box art (right), as well as a list of special in-game items that will be available as pre-order bonuses from various retailers. They include Mr. Zurkon, the (other) helpful sidekick robot from previous titles, from GameStop; a T-Rex Morph Mod from Amazon, which turns enemies into cutesy baby dinosaurs; a Pyro Blaster Unlock from Best Buy, which is designed to fry the living crap out of baddies; and the Sheepinator Mod from Wal-Mart, which operates similar to the T-Rex Morph Mod, only with sheep.

Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is a 4-player co-op game starring Ratchet, Clank, Quark and Dr. Nefarious. It picks up after Crack In Time, and finds the foursome teaming up to escape Planet Magnus after they are taken there to be kept as play things by the game's main villain, Ephemeris the Creature Collector.

Last month, Insomniac invited GR to try out their new take on the Ratchet & Clank series. Read our impressions here, and check out this early gameplay footage:

Kick-ass studio says it's kick-ass... or does it?

    I for one am getting so sick of different versions of pre-order bonuses. So there's no nice way to simply get it all, when it's already on the disc? Screw that shit.

    Let's face it - Nobody loves you, All4One, and no one will either. Go home, you're embarassing the real R&C games.

    All for one? There's no innuendo there!

    I mean, in every R+C game you can unlock a transformation weapon. Seriously. Fans know what I'm talking about.

    is the game move only? because you wrote time to dust off the PS Move wands
  • EnragedTortoise1 - May 20, 2011 7:18 p.m.

    So instead of allowing you to unlock the animal-transformation weapon yourself, you have to preorder it to get it? Laaaame.

    I could have sworn this game already came out, and that no one liked it. Was that just a round of previews I was hearing? Previews aren't normally that negative... Weird.

    T-Rex Morph Mod? Nifty.
