And before we start, yes, it looks like the “Future” part of the title is back (silly, press release).
On Friday night’s episode of GameTrailers TV, the WORLD EXCLUSIVE teaser for this fall’s recently announced Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time had its debut. (I type “WORLD EXCLUSIVE” in all caps because wait until you get a load of how dramatic the graphic and accompanying sound effects are.)
First impressions? Awesome … although not much is shown at all. Insomniac has a near flawless record with its Ratchet & Clank games, though, so I am not worried about A Crack in Time’s quality in the slightest.
I have do have one small hope, however: Out of all videogames that have featured time travel, the infinitely clever Ratchet & Clank series has the potential to use it in some of the most creative and cool ways ever seen. Let’s hope A Crack in Time doesn’t just settle for the basic “each level is just a different time period” format. I want some crazy Back to the Future – Part II oh-my-gosh-don’t-interact-with-your-past-self-or-the-universe-will-implode kind of scenario! If anyone can do it, you can Insomniac.
Hit the jump for the video and let us know what you think. Are you pleasantly teased, or are you holding out until you see some actual (assumedly stellar) gameplay?
