Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault Vita Delayed Until Spring
Posted by Sammy Barker
Sony has finally broken its silence on the PlayStation Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault. The title – which had been set to release in January – will now arrive in the spring. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, product manager Greg Phillips explained that developer Tin Giant has been “working night and day” to bring the title to the handheld, but that it still needs time to hit the “standards expected by our fans”.
As the title was originally billed as a cross-buy release, the publisher has pledged a couple of goodwill gestures to make up for the delay. In North America, you’ll be able to snap up a free copy of Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked for the PS3 when the Vita version of Full Frontal Assault finally releases later this year. Meanwhile, in Europe, you’ll be sent a voucher code for MotorStorm RC assuming you’ve played the PS3 release of Full Frontal Assault online by the end of the week.
North America’s clearly getting the better end of the deal here, but we suppose that it restores the balance after a slew of unfavourable PlayStation Plus updates. That will serve you right for being so smug, Europe.
