Secret Agent Clank is undoubtedly the next really big game on PSP. This addition to the Ratchet franchise adds a fun new spy element. Clank will have to done a few outfits, as evidenced by this video. Being an undercover robot -- we can dig it.
The intro to Secret Agent Clank raises a good number of questions: why is Ratchet breaking into a museum dressed in a robe? Why is he so crazed? What is the Eye of Infinity -- and where is it? Within minutes, Secret Agent Clank is thrust into a world of mystery, intrigue, and kung-fu ninja action.
We have our preview build ready to play -- we hope to provide some impressions in the coming days.
Playing well at the PlayStation Patrol Truck could net you the chance to meet Bamboozle artists. Top players will have the chance to challenge artists such as Armor For Sleep, Chiodos, Circa Survive, The Color Fred, The Audition and All Time Low. Winners will receive VIP access to the show.

Make sure you hit those back links, too; there's a lot to read up on this game. Secret Agent Clank is expected to hit retailers by June 17.
Finally! We can see Captain Quark in action! Secret Agent Clank hasn't been pushing the limits of PSP graphics, but we have to say that things look a bit more charming in these new screens. The lighting effects look really great, and the number of characters on screen is impressive. We're glad to finally see the new enemies that'll be featured in this PSP-exclusive spin-off -- they look just as zany as the series' past creations.

This is the second PSP game. What has High Impact Games learned from Size Matters?
Well, we learned a lot of things. Obviously, the PSP is a very different platform than the PS2. We learned a lot of things about adapting the game to that platform, making sure the controls work, etc.
Is PSP a platform the team would like to continue with?
The PlayStation Portable is a great platform. We love working with it. At the same time, we're excited about the next generation of hardware as well. We'd be happy to work in any direction, so long as its an exciting and interesting project.
If grainy low-res gameplay videos get you all hot and bothered under the collar, then you're in for quite a treat. IGN has posted four Secret Agent Clank videos that aren't exactly the prettiest we've ever seen, but they do show some more of what we can expect from the Clank's adventure, and it's pretty funny to see Ratchet get thrown into the "big house."

Can you figure it out?
Update: Okay, so our shenanigans are over. If you highlighted the text, you would've gotten access to a downloadable trailer for the game. Because some were unable to extract the file properly, we're showing you the YouTube'd version of the trailer, after the cut. Happy V-Day!
How are you going to improve on Size Matters? Are there any improvements on your previous engine or are you building a new one?
Dave Goodrich, Lead Designer: High Impact Games has taken advantage of the Size Matters engine to give us a strong base to work from for this exciting new adventure. Secret Agent Clank has a different style than Size Matters and has expanded into new game types such as timing and stealth. Along with new gameplay modes, there is an assortment of playable characters, each with their own unique levels.
What kind of multiplayer support will there be? Will it work through Infrastructure?
Dave Goodrich, Lead Designer: Secret Agent Clank is a very story intensive game with lots of unique gameplay elements. We have decided to focus our efforts on the single player game to make a really engrossing experience for the player. There is no multiplayer planned for this installment of the game.
