Didn’t like the recent Ratchet & Clank cooperative adventure? Neither did I. In fact, neither did a lot of fans. Most asked that Insomniac drop the locked camera and basic gameplay in favor of the series’ classic roots.

Guess what… They’re doing just that with a brand new, “fun-sized” adventure for the PlayStation 3 this fall.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Ratchet & Clank franchise. As such, we already know that we’ll be getting an HD collection of classic Ratchet titles for the PlayStation 3. Now, by way of the PlayStation Blog, Insomniac Games has announced Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for the PSN.

This will be a downloadable only title (much like Quest for Booty) and will stand as a return to form for the Ratchet gang.

Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault is a fun-sized Ratchet adventure which will be available for download exclusively on the PlayStation Store. We’ve returned to the series’ classic feel, camera, controls and weapons, while innovating and giving you a whole new way to play. Even better, the addition of online features means you can experience Full Frontal Assault with your friends, so stay tuned! We’re really excited about this game, and we hope even these small tidbits about it get you excited too.

We assume this pre-E3 announcement will be further detailed during Sony’s press conference and subsequent booth time at E3 itself. If we can manage some hands-on time with the game, we’ll bring you our impressions straight away.
