It’s time to usher in the Year of the Rabbit (and the monkey that clings to the rabbit’s back), as we leap into a brand new Clive ‘N’ Wrench trailer showcasing the fun to come in this exciting 3D platformer. And, if that’s not enough to wrench your Clive into action, we’ve also got a whopping eight-minute gameplay preview to hop, skip, and jump through as well.
