The Quest for Booty starts right over there

On the Official Blog it was announced that Ratchet and Clank: Quest For Booty will be released on the PS Store on August 21st. (Sidenote: My cousin turns 21 that day. So his quest for 21 and up events begins that day) Not only will it be available on the US store, but the European store as well. *Applause* Japan will be getting this jewel of a title on August 22nd.

Quest For Booty will be $14.99 and will be 3-4 hours long. This game takes place right after Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction leaves off. For everyone that wanted to know, no, you don’t have to own this game to be able to play this. Thank you once again for a great title and addition to the PSN Insomniac.

Official post after the jump

For those of you who don’t know much about Quest for Booty, Ratchet continues the search for his missing mate, Clank, in this pirate-themed sequel to Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction. Even though Q4B is a downloadable game, it packs all of the AAA-production punch you’ve come to expect from every Insomniac Games title.

As for the gameplay, Q4B focuses heavily on exploration and platforming, along with some of new experimental action for the franchise. For example, Ratchet will use the new kinetic tether on his Wrench to manipulate the environment, and he’ll use elements such as light and shadows to his advantage.

We think Quest for Booty is perfect for existing Ratchet & Clank fans and players new to the franchise. If you’ve been a fan over the years, you’ll be compelled to help solve the mystery of Clank’s kidnapping and if you’re just getting started, Quest for Booty offers a great entry point with and action-packed 3-4 hour experience for almost the same price as a movie ticket. Plus, Q4B has pirates… and booty… and it’s really fun to say “Quest for Booty” out loud with a pirate accent.
