Sony has announced that the next full PS3 Ratchet & Clank game will be on shop shelves this autumn.

It's called A Crack in Time, for some reason, and follows Ratchet on his mission to rescue Clank from Dr. Nefarious. Along the way, the titular heroes will discover their true origins and so reveal their destinies.

Series developer Insomniac (also of Resistance 2 fame) is adding spaceship battles and navigation this time, plus the usual refreshed assortment of bonkers weaponry.

All that plus laughs aplenty and top-notch visuals that don't look too far off an animated film, if previous PS3 releases Tools of Destruction and Quest for Booty are anything to go by.

Also, if they are, then we should be in for a treat. Pop over to our Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction and Ratchet & Clank: Quest for Booty reviews to find out why.
