Ratchet & Clank: Full Front Assault hits PSN this fall, and developer Insomniac Games has taken to the PlayStation blog to share some details. Aside from the series-standard third-person gameplay and variety of crazy weapons, this new entry has a twist: tower defense.

As well as tackling invasions in person, you'll need to plan, strategise and build a base to help repel enemies. We trust it'll have some peculiar weapons included, but could provide a good contrast from running around and blasting the bad guys away. The title will include five levels across three worlds where you repel alien armies, with split-screen or online coop for those that want to play with friends. Upgrades, unlockables and a to-be-announced online mode will apparently provide plenty of replay value in the download, so we'll keep our eyes peeled for more details.

Are you interested in picking this up later in the year?
