Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Is Yet To May Win Our Hearts

(Originally posted on laurawritesanarticle.blogspot.com on the 27th of April 2021)

Did the title of this article just rhyme? There may not be an official trailer for the second season of Green Eggs and Ham on Netflix yet [8], but there is a brand new gameplay trailer for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart that reveals some more about the forthcoming experience. Aside from how I sang about Spider-Man just standing there on the PlayStation 4, I have predicted that the digital edition of the PlayStation 5 may not sell as successfully as the standard edition due to the value game discs and their cases have to game collectors Nonetheless, we are still hoping for stylish black versions of both editions to be officially available soon, despite how some owners can always change the white skin of the standard edition to a custom black one from Dbrand, though I somehow might not recommend that due to how cautious the procedure would need to be. Whether a PS5 owned by a Ratchet & Clank fan who wants to play Rift Apart is the digital edition or standard edition, the game still has a lot of potential. Furthermore, I shall analyse some new aspects of its plot after wishing the Surviving High School franchise and the first-ever video on YouTube a happy sweet sixteenth anniversary.

Only over a month left until the new chapter begins!

No PS5 scalping or PS5 scamming allowed…or else!

The new lombax’s name is Rivet and she will be playable at specific points in the game. She will be able to use the same weapons as Ratchet, including the new Rift Tether. “Rivet” is quite a nice and unique name for a new heroine who I still think is a different lombax breed or may turn out to be transgender due to how Ratchet and Angela Cross were samples of sexual dimorphism within the lombax race in Going Commando, even though it has been revealed that Rivet is from another dimension. Oh no! Poor Clank appears to have lost an arm after meeting her! How can he get it back? Speaking of arm, I would be interested to find out why Rivet’s right arm is mechanical, leading to some fascinating backstory. It is exciting how a possible new breed of the lombax race will team up with an estranged robot as an element of some new development for him. Furthermore, it has been confirmed that Rift Apart takes place after the events of Into The Nexus, which means Ratchet may finally get to know more of his species besides Angela and Alister Azimuth.

I am delighted to see that there will be some brand new female empowerment that could be combined with positive transgender representation in the new chapter of Ratchet & Clank. How different Rivet’s tail looks backs up the theory of her being part of a new breed.

Clank is still so cute, whether he is missing an arm or not!

I am sensing some more A Crack In Time vibes as Ratchet is seen once again playable in Rift Apart, but with hover boots that are like the ones that belonged to his father and the determination to reunite with his best friend. Previously in the extended gameplay demo, he makes a mistake by aiming at the open Dimensionator, causing dimensions to collide. I feel like there could have been an opportunity to introduce an equivalent of Clank who resides in Rivet’s dimension and will team up with Ratchet, but I suppose there might not be enough room for the plot to develop a new robotic sidekick…or bring back Klunk. Nevertheless, a sudden reintroduction of Klunk could somehow thicken the plot, as long as it does not seem tacked on. As for Ratchet going solo, it seems that he will not have those thick black eyebrows in the Japanese release, which is not really a big deal to me. It would be awesome if the game had a multiplayer mode that will allow Ratchet and Rivet to be seen voyaging and fighting either together or against each other. My boyfriend would play as Ratchet and I would play as Rivet!

I wish my face would be on a red poster. Other than that, I strongly believe setting Rift Apart sometime after the events of Into The Nexus could finally make up for how long we have waited for Ratchet to discover the lombax race.

Ratchet may make a slip-up, but I know he can at least try to make up for it later on in the plot, like how he did later on in the Ratchet & Clank movie and the game based on it.

The parade balloons based on Ratchet, Clank and Captain Quark seen at the beginning of the new trailer sure are quirky and festive, but a familiar threat occurs! Dr. Nefarious seems to be as dastardly as ever, sending our duo to a dimension where he is always the victor and free of the consequences. So much for being a playable ally in Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. And what the heck? Is there a version of him as an emperor in the dimension Rivet resides in? No way! I feel bad for Rivet as I dread to imagine how ruthless the way of Emperor Nefarious ruling a dimension would be, although there could be an alternate dimension where Conker the Squirrel has become a happy billionaire after many more instalments of his franchise. Will the two robotic tyrants team up against the reunited heroes and a new heroine in an epic boss battle like how Dr. Eggman and Dr. Robotnik did in Sonic Generations? It will be up to our three heroes to snatch the Dimensionator from the two different interpretations of the mad scientist!

Wow. Imagine being hushed only to get whacked in the face. I sure hope I will be able to tell the differences between Dr. Nefarious and Emperor Nefarious.

Who knows how Emperor Nefarious will be dethroned and how Dr. Nefarious will once again lose?

My stars! Look what the digital deluxe edition has to offer to those who pre-order the game! There are brand new armours for Ratchet and Rivet. Why does the Android armour remind me of Bumblebee? The Rebel armour for Rivet would be my favourite as it makes her as fashionable as Lara Croft. To an extent, the Scavenger armour for Ratchet reminds me of Sam Fisher from the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series. The Imperial armour for Ratchet looks like the more empowering one and I love the shade of purple on Rivet’s Hacker armour. As a collector’s edition, the digital deluxe edition also comes with:

  • A sticker pack
  • A digital art book
  • A digital soundtrack
  • Twenty shards of raritanium

There also appears to be a launch edition of the game that will consist of early unlocking of the Pixelizer from the 2016 reimagining and the Carbonox armour from Going Commando for both lombaxes only be available in Canada and America this June. Whether the edition of the game will be regular or something special, the overall gameplay experience with a large variety of weapons, including the Burst Pistol and new aspects of character development within an engaging plot should matter the most.

I think my boyfriend will go for the regular edition of the game if he ever has a PS5.

Look how protective and empowering the Carbonox armours are.

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart will be released worldwide on the 11th of June 2021 and begin a new era of the franchise on the PlayStation 5 before our tama-caretakers become tama-photographers with Tamagotchi Pix. If only the Ratchet & Clank movie was not a box office bomb, so that there would be a sequel based on the events of Rift Apart. Nonetheless, our fellow galactic rangers in Canada got to see an animated spin-off short titled “Ratchet & Clank: Life of Pie” earlier this year. Moreover, I am still quite proud of how I wrote and published a fanfiction about Ratchet cheering me up by activating a smoothitron back in mid-2016. As much as I hope that a sequel to High School Story will be exceptional with familiar yet fresh gameplay and new stories that some new teenaged players can empathise with, I hope that the daring lombax and his cute robot sidekick will be reunited in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, no matter which language dub the whole experience will be in Bring on some gorgeous official black editions of both the digital and standard PS5 with black controllers soon!

I would not be surprised if a nickname for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart would be “Rivet & Clank”.

We need to find out how Ratchet and Clank will reunite! Maybe on a red carpet again? Stay tuned, galactic rangers.
