Secret Agent Clank Update

Frank Simon's Avatar Posted by on Sep 28, 2007 // Sr. Producer, SCEA


Hi all. My name is Frank Simon and I’m a senior producer on Secret Agent Clank. I wanted to provide you all with a quick update on the game since we recently introduced it.

Well, I’ve just returned to the states after my most recent trip to TGS and am suffering jet lag that always seems to accompany such trips. Hopefully, this entry will make some sense. As you may have read, we announced Secret Agent Clank, an original PSP title coming out next year from the development team at High Impact Games, at the media cocktail party during TGS. We are finally giving Clank his time in the spotlight!

One cool feature we showed off was Clank-fu, a full action move set for Clank as he takes on the ninjas, guardian robots and other nasties in his pursuit to free Ratchet – who is accused of a crime he didn’t commit. We also showed a new line of gadgets and devices and rhythm gameplay where Clank dodges and weaves through a laser field. One of my favorite sections so far is the boss fight with Jack where the player gets to play as Qwark. It’s about time that the big guy put his money where his mouth is. High Impact has done a great job of listening to the R&C fanbase and letting them play what they have always wanted to play. I’ve included a couple of shots from the stuff we showed for those who weren’t at the show (one above and below).

Look for more on Secret Agent Clank soon!

are these the same people that made size matters?


+ Solace on September 28th, 2007 at 1:41 pm said:

Is there going to be any connectivity between this and ToD?
And will there be any bonuses if you played SizeMatters and have a save on your mem stick?
Can’t wait…..

+ lakaihigh on September 28th, 2007 at 1:55 pm said:

looks and sounds pretty sick. I haven’t played size matters yet but I heard its pretty good. Can anyone here make any suggestions or reviews?


+ optimusprime76 on September 28th, 2007 at 2:12 pm said:


Size matters is one of the best games out there on the PSP. I highly recommend it.

I also can’t wait for Secret Agent Clank. Excellent job Sony :)


+ lostboy85 on September 28th, 2007 at 2:16 pm said:

Thanks for the update Frank. I cant wait to play as Quark. Everyone at High Impact did such an incredible job bringing us R&C: Size Matters. And it looks like you are well on your way to outshining yourself.
Its Quarktastic!


+ Stoffinator on September 28th, 2007 at 2:23 pm said:

I just saw trailers of this on gametrailers,com and it looks great! Now if I could only get a PSP. :-(

Awesome update. I’m a HUGE fan of R&C myself and really liked the job you did on Size Matters. This is definitely one of my most anticipated PSP games.

The rhythm part looks fun lol.

Look forward to this :)


+ Globox82 on September 28th, 2007 at 3:49 pm said:

Very nice. Rather to see something “fresh” like this, instead of “Size Matters 2”


+ Jersey-Gamer on September 28th, 2007 at 4:34 pm said:

The video from TGS looked great. I’ve greatly enjoyed all of the previous games in the series, and I’ll surely get this one as well.


+ foolio_67 on September 28th, 2007 at 4:43 pm said:

Clank FTW!


+ RedHawk on September 28th, 2007 at 4:57 pm said:

@ Kinglink

Insomniac dosn’t make the PSP R&Cs High Impact Games does. Insomniac is in no way spreading the selves too thin. R&C for the PS3 was Okay? Have you played the game? I think not, It isn’t out yet. You may have played the Demo but that’s one level.


+ Kpepe on September 28th, 2007 at 5:22 pm said:

Wow. Another future game to add to my future PSP slim next week. Thanks sony!!


+ AmericanNinja on September 28th, 2007 at 5:52 pm said:

Awesome another GREAT PSP exclusive from High Impact Games and Sony. Thanks guys! :)


+ Cesar on September 28th, 2007 at 6:18 pm said:

That Game Would play perfect on the psp those games are not made for the Big console so it would work good for the psp
Lets get a Demo on the Playstatin Store

You guys realize that all of these positive comments will just make the team that much more excited, right?

You’ve been warned ;)


+ ParthianArcher on September 28th, 2007 at 6:23 pm said:

I wonder if it will have inter-connectivity to the PS3 R&C.
You know, extra cheats or unlockables, that kind of stuff.


+ gardea on September 28th, 2007 at 7:02 pm said:

So many games…not enough money lol.

Which to chooooooooseeeee?


+ Darkendless on September 28th, 2007 at 7:06 pm said:


The PS3 has sold as much as the 360 in the same time frame with less games, a much higher price tag and in competition with both the 360 and Wii at the same time while the 360 had nothing to compete with and it still managed only to sell the same as the PS3.


+ C-h-a-o-s on September 28th, 2007 at 8:04 pm said:

@ Frank Simon that is a warning I could live with. So if all these positive posts get the team excited maybe just maybe we will see more Secret agent blog posts? Or maybe just maybe a demo in my mail box next week? Ok the last one was pushing it but one can dream.


+ joel on September 28th, 2007 at 8:54 pm said:

Cool, another awsome ACTION/ADVENTURE original psp title. This + GOW,FF VII, MGS,KH BBS, and more is going to sell ALOT of psp’s. Ratchet and clank are a great series, and hopefully it doesnt die out like jak and daxter.


+ MrDaBucket on September 28th, 2007 at 9:12 pm said:

Thanks Frank!
Take your time with this game and do your best to make Clank’s first solo job “one to remember”.
I just bought Size Matters for PSP yesterday night and have been playing through it. I think so far, you’ve done a great job bringing such a [DELETED] good franchise over to the PSP( and you guys at High Impact made it looks sooo good too!).
So while I’m finishing up your first R&C PSP game, I hope you guys do well with this next one.
Can’t wait to see it.

Sincerely, Stephen AKA MrDaBucket AKA MDB


+ foolio_67 on September 28th, 2007 at 10:59 pm said:

@ Frank…..well that’s always a good thing:) I’d really like to seem some connectivity to the ps3 as well like #30 said!


+ Chike on September 28th, 2007 at 11:10 pm said:

I can’t wait for the demo, if there is going to be one.


+ RatchetFanatic on September 28th, 2007 at 11:24 pm said:

hopefully this one will be a lot longer than Size Matters.


+ Reddsk on September 29th, 2007 at 12:57 am said:

I’ve reeeeeally been looking forward to more time with Clank. I mean, his sections of the previous games were so much fun. I always wanted more of that. Now I get what I want, plus more!


+ Apostle on September 29th, 2007 at 2:17 am said:

Looks nice, more reasons for me to buy a PSP, which will please your Sony boss I guess :)


+ Globox82 on September 29th, 2007 at 3:28 am said:

Nice to hear that.

Lookin’ good.


+ StormLord on September 29th, 2007 at 1:23 pm said:

nice to see him get his own game :)


+ patrickp3 on September 29th, 2007 at 1:42 pm said:

I hope that this game, unlike others for the PS3, isn’t excessively priced for we Canadian Sony players.
On that note Sony guys, when can we expect to see the prices on Sony hardware here in the Great White North come down to reflect the parity of the Canadian and American dollars? Right now, for instance, we’re paying 50% more for the Sixaxis controller. Do you have stock in eBay or something?


+ reesimo on September 29th, 2007 at 6:34 pm said:

I want now.


+ I_Love_New_York on September 29th, 2007 at 7:11 pm said:

I might have to buy a new Slim PSP now with this game and Size Matters, God of War CoO and Crisis Core


+ Gunwing on September 30th, 2007 at 9:38 am said:

Yeah the PSP is finaly getting some good games and tons are getting announced the more time goes on. This is in part to the fact that the PSP is now out selling the DS/DS Lite and all other consoles/hadnhelds in Japan as of this week.

Now all we need is for Sony to release some more full length movies on UMD as I hear that those are also selling alot better now too!


+ 40cal on September 30th, 2007 at 11:20 am said:

I just wanted to say (again) that I love the new PSP. It loads so much faster and is crazy lite. As I have handed to people this week no one thinks its real because of the weight untill they turn it on and still there is some disbelief.

Great job on this hardware design.
Thank you :)
The video out is also great.


+ Random on September 30th, 2007 at 8:00 pm said:

looks awesome I’ll definitely get this, the story seems a bit to close to Daxter though…


+ saunderswan on October 1st, 2007 at 9:44 am said:

just 1 question will EUROPE be getting this R&C demo at the same time as America?


+ zellhazard on October 1st, 2007 at 4:03 pm said:

I am happy to see High Impact giving Clank some moves! His combos seem smooth for the most part. And I am very glad he moves much faster than in Size Matters or any other R&C game for that matter.

As for quark, using him will be awesome, not sure if it is announced, but hopefully you can upgrade his blaster :P Even though clank has some new weapons, and Tools gives Clank some new powers. Compatible, eh?

Well, either way, I will definitely be picking up this game. Here’s to hoping for a clank/quark team up! (well for this game)
