Ratchet and Clank, the video game based on the movie based on the video game, has gone gold. What this means is that development on the project has now ceased, and the finished title is now swingshotting its way to mass manufacturers as we speak.
Developer Insomniac confirmed this after sharing an Twitter image, showing proof of the game’s first disc.

Ratchet and Clank is a PS4 exclusive that reimagines the first game in the series. Spanning around 11 hours, the game features some additions and changes to the original, including spacecraft combat and the Groovitron from the Ratchet and Clank Future games (via. GameSpot). In addition to airborne battle and the Groovitron’s reappearance, players can also expect to find a variety of new planets, bosses and weapons to discover, as well as an updated control scheme. Those who preorder Ratchet and Clank will also get access to the Bouncer weapon from Going Commando.
The game is set for release a couple of weeks before the film, which also re-pictures the events of the original Ratchet and Clank. The PS4 title will be available on April 12 for $40 (£25) rather than $60. The film will land in cinemas on April 29, starring Paul Giamatti, Bella Thorne, John Goodman and Sylvester Stallone, according to IGN.
