SCEJA have made the rather shocking announcement that the Japanese HD Remaster of Ratchet & Clank: Deadlocked has been mysteriously cancelled. No exact reason was given in the for the cancellation other than a less than satisfying for “various reasons” and closing with the prototypical PR apology.

The surprising withdrawl of the title billed in Japan as  Ratchet & Clank 4th: Final Huge Battle for the Galaxy is made even more suspicious when one considers the fact that the localization for the game had already been completed when the game debuted in the land of the rising sun during the PS2 era. Moreover the HD Remaster had already been released in the West which would mean very little actual work would have to be done for the conversion. Keep it tuned to TVL as we will update you with more details as they come in.
