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.

  • I'm tired of this recent trend of annual Ratchet & Clank games, ever since All 4 One the series has been going downhill. Yes, the graphics are beautiful as always but there's no heart to the story anymore.

  • Can never have enough R&C. Glad to see Insomniac bring the series back to it's roots. One of my favorite series in video games.

  • This is great news! Now for a PS4 Ratchet & Clank game..........Please?

  • Only $30?  Well I might get it then.

  • I must give my thanks to Ashley, who posted here last week comment about system she uses to earn online... I've got my FIRST check total of $550, pretty cool.! I am so exicted, this is the first time i actually earned something. I am going to work even harder new and i can't wait for next week payment. You can try it for yourself www.Blue46.ℂom
  • I would happily pay 60 for this. Been waiting since 2009. Thank God!

  • I'm so getting this!

  • i reallywanted a jak and ratchet game :(

  • Awesome that they are going back to the Original formula; not saying that All for 1 and Full Frontal Assault were bad. For $30, It might be like the DLC that led up to Crack in Time. But to have one more  Ratchet &  Clank  full game before the end of the PS3, that would be Pretty cool.

  • This looks pretty cool, though taking into account Insomniac's recent games...

  • Another reason to get a PS3.  I need to go ahead and get one.

  • I've never actually played any of the Ratchet & Clank games. Worth trying out?
  • EVERYBODY HAVE FUN TONITE!!!

  • awesome!

  • Good to see another traditional Ratchet and Clank game in production. However, the early release date and the low price tag insinuates that this game will be small in size and possibly rushed out. I hope it still can retain the quality that the series is known for, albeit in a smaller package.

    I will say this though, I would love to have fun tonight!
  • YES OH GOD YES YES YES YES YES

  • I *** lost it at the EVERYBODY HAVE FUN TONIGHT! part. Looks like a pretty cool game though. I haven't played a Ratchet game in years though. Probably since back in the days of the PS2.

  • cant wait but wished it would also be on the PS4

  • The lack of innuendos in the title makes me rather sad.
  • I was hoping PS4 too, but still day one purchase for me. R&C is one of my favorite gaming franchises.
