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.

  • Reminds of Sonic the Hedgehog, not my thing anymore but still a cool game.

  • Insomniac is developing exclusives for xbox and sony now?

  • Hmm, the $30 price tag makes it seem like it will be a short game. But I'm still happy that we're getting more R&C!

  • I skipped the last two, but I'll probably give this one a shot.

  • It looks amazing. Definitely going to get it!

  • A 30 bucks ratchet game.  *** yes


  • A traditional R&C game is music to my ears :)

  • See, THIS is why I have no choice but to get a freakin' Playstation. I missed out on R&C: ACIT, I will miss out on Beyond: Two Souls, and I missed out on Sly Cooper. Sly. Cooper. Screw Halo, I am tired on missing out on these fantastic games.

  • amazon preorder is up yes yes yes!!!!

  • YEEEESSSSSS!!!!!! but im a little confused. is it an official next chapter in the story? are we going to learn about Ratchet's race, family, father, or Max Apogee? is it coming to next gen? and Orvus? so many questions...
