Whoa. That's a nice surprise, actually!

Sounds like it's a runner, but still... that's really cool to have a runner for Ratchet and Clank!

Looks like it has some good production values. Hopefully it feels like R&C (highly doubtful)

Damn, it's always sad when one of my favorite franchises becomes yet another endless runner. I'll really be sad when Crash Bandicoot becomes one.
