Ratchet & Clank turns ten years old this year, and Sony is celebrating in style by confirming the impending arrival of Ratchet & Clank Collection for PlayStation 3 in the autumnal quarter of this year. The collection will include the original trilogy of Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando and Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal, all featuring the compulsory HD remastering we've come to expect from these re-releases to a 1080p resolution as well as support for stereoscopic 3D (at 720p). And they're even throwing in the original online multiplayer mode found in Up Your Arsenal, which I'm sure a lot of people missed out on in the PS2 release.
The grunt work is being done by Idol Minds, who are said to be working closely with Insomniac. I'm excited because, for once, this is an HD remastering which consists entirely of games I never played at all, having not become entranced by the series until the Ratchet & Clank Future trilogy. Happy day! You can check out the first few screens released by Sony in our gallery.
