Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus

New "Traditional" Single-Player Ratchet & Clank Game Coming This Year

What was teased earlier today, has now been officially confirmed. Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus is coming exclusively to PlayStation 3 this year.

The last two Ratchet games, All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault, were experiments in the Ratchet world to a certain degree, but Insomniac says that it wants to return to the series' roots. Insomniac's community lead James Stevenson says, "It feels like the time is right to revisit Ratchet’s personal story arc," on PlayStation's blog showcasing the game.

You can check out the announcement trailer below which shows the Ratchet & Clank gameplay we are all familiar with, along with Dead Space-style anti-gravity sequences in space, as well as Portal 2-style excursion funnels.

The game will be available this holiday as a PSN downloadable game, as well as a retail release for $29.99. Right now the game is a PlayStation 3 exclusive. It's unclear if the game will release on PlayStation Vita, as well.

  • Was hoping this would be a PS4 title but whatever. *Sings* YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
  • Since I am upgrading my PC instead of getting a console these next couple of years, I am glad that its on PS3. Also, thank god Insomniac didn't sell out to M$!!!
  • Still kinda upset at Insomniac.
  • I'm luke warm about this. Though I'd rather have another ratchet and clank then a sequel to any of the other insomniac games
  • Insomniac stated they wanted to bring their games to everyone, so this may be why they are making a Xbox one exclusive title and PS3 exclusive title.
  • It's a smaller game? *Sigh* Oh well... I'm sure it will be great, however

  • *A certain loved franchise called Jak walks in* "Hey! What about me?" *A certain game that deserves another chance called Playstation Allstars walks in* "Can I please get another shot?" *A certain game called Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus walks in and will cost 30 bucks* "HEYYYY!!!!" I was really hoping for a Jak X Ratchet & Clank game OR a Playstation Allstars sequel but oh well.... We got this instead. It looks cool, though.
  • Still only cautiously optimistic at best since Fuse's disaster of a disaster, but I'm glad that Insomniac is at least trying at a real Ratchet & Clank game again. Full Frontal Assault and All 4 One were huge bores in my opinion. Having something personal and more humor filled like Crack in Time would be awesome, pretty concerned if this was a quickie like All 4 One was and only made in 2 yrs. More than wary of glitches and a watered down campaign length. Oh well, glad that Ratchet and gang are getting some more attention than just a movie.
  • A bit disappointed that it's not a Ratchet and Clank title for the ps4,but this will still be an amazing game.

  • For that price I'm definitely in.

  • I'm... not quite sure what to think about it at the moment. I'll reserve my judgement until we start getting more info. Still, I'm pretty pissed at Insomniac with the whole Fuse and Sunset Overdrive debacle.
  • This and The Last of Us are the only two games this year that are making me wish I had just had my PS3 fixed as opposed to trading it in when the blu-ray player went out.
  • I'm slightly disappointed, I was hoping for a Jak and Ratchet and Clank crossover.
  • Pretty wary of that reduced price tag. If the campaign is shortened I don't know how worthwhile it will be. Plus, with Fuse being mediocre and the whole situation with Sunset Overdrive being, oddly, an Xbox One excusive I think it's safe to say my faith in Insomniac has been shaken.
  • Too good to be true. Finally a true ratchet and clank game! I just played the hd collection and those games hold up so well.

  • Eh. Not sure another downloadable R&C is what we need. I'd rather they cool off for the remainder of the year and get to work on R&CFutureFuture for the PS4. And no more gimmicky multiplayer games no one wants.

  • Yesss! Very excited for this and crazy price makes this an easy day one buy for me. 2013 has been and continues to be an amazing year.

  • awesome.  wonder if microsoft already screwed over insomniac. lol.

  • Thus was it foretold in the Sly Cooper test chamber.
