Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus on PS3

Everyone here at Insomniac has been working really hard to bring you Ratchet and Clank’s latest adventure, Into the Nexus, 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:

Ratchet’s Volcanox Armor, available as a pre-order bonus at participating retailers, 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, if you pre-order via Amazon.com, you’ll score a huge package of R&C-themed content for PlayStation Home – a value of roughly $30.

That’s all for now. The wait for more classic Ratchet & Clank is almost over! Follow Insomniac on Facebook and Twitter for the latest R&C news.

  • Will we be able to see Ratchet’s face with the new armor on during in- game cutscenes?

    Also, will ever find out what truly happened to Max Apogee?

  • Thanks for not using Gamestop! I already have it pre-ordered from Amazon!!!! You guys should let High Impact games do a stand-alone R&C game like they did for PSP.

    I can’t wait for the PS4 version.

    Don’t forget voice controls to operate ship with PS4 eye! hint hint

  • I just preordered it at Amazon. I hope Mr. Zurkon makes an appearance.

  • This could be the game that i pick up, but not sure if i ‘m purchasing anymore games for PS3.

  • Dear Santa,……………………

  • Darn it, I posted that previous comment hoping you would hint towards a next-gen game, but it was ignored, sad.

  • Why the Boxart change?

    This one was sooooooo epic! :(


    Oh and for $29.99, I can’t wait to see the Brazilian price for this baby :D

    I love R&C :3

  • Well I been per-order it and I can’t wait for this game…On another note Ratchet looks like scorpion from Mortal Kombat in that armor..No Lie.

  • Would you consider a Ratchet and Clank Future Collection with the four future games?

  • I’m so excited for this! I thought I would have to wait until like Christmas or something. Anyways, this is great news! Definitely pre-ordering :)

    Any chance the Groovitron will make an appearance in this game? I love that device & I think it would be funny to see how the Thugs would dance lol.

  • Still feel bitter about Insomniac appearing during MS’s E3 conference. *coughtraitorcough*
    Make next gen Resistance then we can be friends again. Beyond!

  • I hope to see this series continue on PS4!

  • this looks awesome ive been a big fan of ratchet and clank my whole life, to me its the best video game series ever created i hope there is a ratchet and clank for ps4 XD

  • What participating retailers??,,, how are we supposed to know where to get the pre-order besides Amazon…

  • WHY NO FOR VITA!!!!!

  • Wow, PlayStation Home is still a thing people do? I had no idea.

  • I love seeing all of the PS Plus members here!

  • PS Home pre-order bonuses? 2 t-shirts and a pair of ratchet ears, that ought to cost $30 in Home right? Haha just kidding this game looks awesome!

  • When will the demo for Ratchet and Clank Into the Nexus be released to the Playstation Store for download?

  • So happy that Ratchet and Clank are going back to solo play again Ratchet and Clank 3 was my very first game and is my favourite game of all time but I have preordered the game and I got it from my local EBgames shop does that mean I get the awesome armour. Hope more games come on ps4.

  • Thank you! So, will there be any more pre-order bonuses in the future or is this it?

  • What about the vita version its listed on newegg.

  • I find it insane and disappointing how everyone is talking about the PS4 and acting as if gamers everywhere are upgrading to the PS3. What the heck? Our household is on a economic gaming budget. My sister and I LITERALLY just bought a PS3 and now everyone online is talking as if the PS3 is no longer relevant. I hope that Sony PlayStation and third party companies like Insomniac Games, Naughty Dog, Ubisoft and Gearbox Software continue to develop and support the PS3 for a couple more years.

    Anyway, my first Ratchet and Clank game was “Size Matters” on the PSP and boy did I enjoy that game very much. When it comes to platformers such as Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Uncharted or Jak And Daxter I prefer handheld consoles and I sincerely hope that Ratchet and Clank Into The Nexus gets a PS Vita release. The PS Vita is truly the most powerful handheld gaming console ever and I love Killzone Mercenary on it and I sincerely want to see Ratchet and Clank on the PS Vita. Not only “Into The Nexus” but a Ratchet and Clank title built entirely from the ground up to make the most of the PS Vita. The PS Vita is the end of the old low quality portable gaming era. The PS Vita is home console quality gaming made handheld.

  • when can we pre-order on the psn?
