Publishers and developers often draw inspiration from other titles. PlayStation 4’s exclusive title Ratchet & Clank is no different, with a number of gameplay elements drawing comparisons with Nintendo’s very own Star Fox.
As a sign of respect and good faith, developer Insomniac games has included a lovely reference to Star Fox in Ratchet & Clank PS4.
In the video below at the 2:19 mark, you can hear the renowned meme “do a barrel roll,” which is of course is Peppy’s Hare famous quote from the Star Fox series. It’s a nice gesture by Sony and Insomniac Game, that will likely earn them brownie points from the community.
Star Fox Zero for the Wii U has a revised release scheduled, now due for Q1 2016. Additional time to polish the game was cited as the reason for the titles delay.
