Sony announced recently that their Ratchet & Clank reboot released April 12th has hit the top spot in terms of sales within the franchise.
Though no numbers have been settled on yet, the company claims that their reimagining of the classic PS2 original title has seen the fastest sales the franchise has seen. The title was released in relation to (but not tied in with) the feature length movie that just hit screens. While reviews for the movie however are bombing, the game has been met with critical acclaim in its first few weeks of release.
Reviewers are marvelling at the franchise’s journey from its stocky PS2 origins, and returning to their childhoods with glee and nostalgia in this modern day throwback. With Update 1.03 having just been released, improving the game’s audio, difficulty in overboard races, and various bugs, the game has been further polished, especially with crucial additions to the trophy and achievement system.
Ratchet & Clank is available now on PS4.
