New shots of Ratchet in action

Ratchet and Clank will be reuniting once again on the PSP in Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters, and we've got new screens. Hit the Images tab above, and you can check out the sharpest shots yet of the trigger-happy Lombax and his robot sidekick tangling with robots, giant enemy crabs and weird little sumo dudes.

Due out early next year, Size Matters promises to pack in the same mix of shooting and platform-hopping that made the PS2 Ratchet games a hit. We're not sure yet if developer High Impact will nail the gameplay, but if the new screens are any indication, Size Matters will at least feature the diverse weapons and huge, wide-open levels we've gotten used to. And that's got to count for something, right?
