Unfortunately, it’s been delayed again.
The first delay noted that the game would come to Vita in January of 2013, but that month came and went without a peep. The game’s Sony-side producer, Greg Phillips, notes that “Our friends at [developer] Tin Giant have been working night and day to bring Insomniac’s PS3 game to the PS Vita system and to provide our fans with a great game. While the original delay has helped us make the game better, we still need more time to bring the game up to the standards expected by our fans.”
As such, the game will now be released on Vita in the nebulous “Spring, 2013” time frame. The good news is that “For those of you who have purchased the PS3 version of the game and are waiting for your PS Vita entitlement, we want to make it up to you as best we can. On the release date for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for PS Vita, we will be offering Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked [HD] for the PS3 system as a free download to all of our fans who purchased Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault for the PS3 system (digitally or on disc).”
So you may have to wait quite a bit longer to get your hands on the Vita iteration of the game. But at least you get a freebie as an olive branch.
