It’s hard to believe, but the Ratchet and Clank series celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. To commemorate this momentous occasion, the team at Insomniac Games have put together a new title that strays a bit outside of the norm in the upcoming third-person strategy tower defense game, Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault.

For starters, Full Frontal Assault is not your typical Ratchet and Clank title. While the game does take place in third person and many of the controls are how you remember them, this isn’t your standard quest across the galaxy featuring crazy platforming, massive worlds to explore, etc. Instead, FFA is a hybrid arena battle/tower defense game that sees players (or teams) competing for controls of various zones while still having the ability to dish out damage on their own. When you aren’t focusing on tower control, you can strap on some of the series’ most infamous weapons and go to town putting holes in the opposition all by your lonesome.

Insomniac’s Senior Community Manager James Stevenson dropped by the PlayStation Blog to talk shop, revealing the game’s official release date and cheaper-than-expected price point. For starters, Full Frontal Assault will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Vita on Nov. 27 at retail and on the PlayStation Network. Either version of the game will set you back just $19.99. But that’s still not the best news.

“Both the download and the retail versions support cross-buy as well,” Stevenson said. “So your purchase gets you both the game on PS3 and a digital copy for PlayStation Vita.”

That’s right, you’re getting two versions of the game, complete with cross-save and cross-play for the online (co-op and competitive) mode, for the price of one. Look for Ratchet and Clank: Full Frontal Assault on PSN and store shelves on Nov. 27.
