The PlayStation Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (aka Qforce, as it is known in Europe) has just been pushed back to January of 2013, meaning those who get the PS3 edition will have to wait a bit until they can redeem their free PS Vita copy.Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault promises to deliver the same classic experience seen in previous games in the series, while combining it with quite a few new elements, including a bold new tower defense mechanic that will test the strategy skills of the players.
The title was also set to be a part of the Cross-Buy system, which gives a free PS Vita copy of a game to anyone who purchases it on the PlayStation 3.
Sadly, PS3 owners who get Full Frontal Assault will have to until January to download the free Vita version, as Sony has confirmed that a delay has been made.
“Our friends at Tin Giant have been working hard to bring Insomniac’s PS3 game to PS Vita and to ensure that your experience is packed with all the action and polish you’d expect from a Ratchet & Clank game,” said Sony’s Greg Phillips on the PS blog.
“In order to provide the best gameplay experience possible, the PS Vita version of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault will be coming out in January 2013. The PS3 version will still be available for purchase at participating retailers and on PSN starting on November 27, 2012.”
In order to make the wait a bit more bearable, Sony also confirmed that the first piece of DLC for Full Frontal Assault, the Mini-Boss Skin Pack, will be offered for free to all owners of the game.
“This skin pack features three fan-favorite boss characters from past Ratchet & Clank games, including Chainblade from Going Commando and the Two-eyed Tyrhrranoid from Up Your Arsenal.”
Look forward to the release of Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault (Qforce) next week, on November 27, for the PS3.
