Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Hits PS3 November 12th

We hope you’re excited for Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Everyone here at Insomniac has been working really hard to bring you Ratchet and Clank’s latest adventure, and we’re happy to announce that it will be available in-stores and online on November 12th, 2013! An epilogue to the Future games (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, A Crack in Time), Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is packed with an all-new story, an all-new arsenal, and all-new gadgets – and it’s only $29.99.

Some of you have asked us why we made a shorter Ratchet game. The truth is, we relished this ability to tie a bow on the PS3 era of Ratchet with a shorter title. All of us love the Ratchet universe – and after 12 years developing the series, it feels like a very close friend. We have a lot of stories to tell, some longer, some shorter. This one felt just right. It’s a very polished self-contained return to the Ratchet adventures of yore. It’s impactful, too; filled with planet-hopping, guns blazing, joke-cracking Ratchet & Clank, and events happen here that will change Ratchet forever. Think of it as a small epic.

Another question we get asked a lot is how Ratchet & Clank games get created. We unearthed this excellent VHS promotional tape all about the Insomniac Gamatorium, detailing the process. Check it out:

We’ve also been asked if we’ll be offering a pre-order bonus for Into the Nexus. We’re happy to reveal that we will have a pre-order bonus at participating retailers. Ratchet’s Volcanox Armor is inspired by Gadgetron’s popular Infernox Armor. This lightweight durable suit is for the fashion-conscious adventurer. Besides granting a 5% damage-reduction, it also all-but guarantees “Best-Dressed” awards at high-school reunions.

Additionally, we’re including a large package of R&C-themed avatar content for PlayStation Home, a $30 value.

That’s all for now. The wait for more classic Ratchet & Clank is almost over! As always, keep up with the latest R&C news and tidbits by Liking Insomniac Games on Facebook and following us on Twitter.

  • ido

    why can’t you make thus long like the others??? YOU RUINED your record FIRST A4O THEN FFA THEN FUSE AND NOW INTO THE NEXUS!!!!!

  • dgvgege

    No thanks. I still won’t forget how you are backstabbing your PS fans with sunset overdrive, you know, the fans that have supported you since you opened and made sure you people did not become homeless? I’m ashamed that I was a fan of your work. The Spyro PS1 trilogy and the original R&C games were amazing. I do not support your latest projects for obvious reasons. Take a page from Naughty Dogs book and realize its about the fans. Making SO exclusive to xbox one not only alienates 90% of your fanbase, it also backstabs us as well.

      Agreed! I’m still getting Nexus but I whole-heartedly agree with the rest.

    Please don’t rush it if you want to release it before the PS4 launches. It’s better to have a finished game than a half-broken game that has to be updated after launch.

    I already per-ordered the game its going to be epic awesome adventure!

    This new armor for ratchet and clank looks sick

  • Martin Ebermann

    please do not only make singleplayer games or tower defense games like this ps vita crap title i almost bought.
    ratchet and clank 3 was soo good with singlemplayer AND really good multiplayer
    i still remember chasing my friend in a spaceship splitscreen while he just drives around in a buggy and the masses of bots shoot each other at the ground dne at the end we stole that core thing from the enemys base that was just pure fun.
    singleplayer is fun too but i wish for another multiplayer splitscreen title maybe for ps3 or for ps4, but then with even more masses of bots you can fight against with your friends

  • elite

  • elite

    YO what’s up with all you haters out taking trash about ratchet and clank all 4 one and full frontal assault! Those games are awesome, sure there not traditional ratchet and clank games but you need to respect insomniac games so chill the heck out!

    • BringSunsetOverdriveToPS4

      Although I did like A41 and FFA, your attitude is ridiculous. The people who dislike them are entitled to their opinion and Insomniac are not above criticism.
