Since completing the Ratchet & Clank Future saga (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, and A Crack in Time) we’ve had a really amazing time expanding the universe of our intergalactic heroes. From creating the first four-player co-op Ratchet & Clank experience for the whole family to enjoy with All 4 One, to returning with the first all-new R&C competitive mode in QForce, we’ve challenged ourselves to bring new types of play to the Ratchet series.
At the same time, we love single-player Ratchet adventures. We’ve continued to generate new ideas for weapons, gadgets, and planets. It feels like the time is right to revisit Ratchet’s personal story arc.
We’re excited to announce that Ratchet and Clank are returning this year on PS3 with an all new original single-player epilogue to the Future games. Under the creative direction of Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time creative director Brian Allgeier, Ratchet & Clank Nexus is a story-driven platform adventure, with the humour and heart that make the franchise so beloved.
Check out the first trailer here:
As you can see from the trailer, Nexus has a bunch of new crazy weapons and gadgets. Gravity is one of the themes of the game: you’ll experience zero-G space, you’ll use gravity-defying new gadgets, and you’ll manipulate gravity to solve brand new Clank puzzles.
The game will be available for download on PSN this holiday season. It’s our biggest downloadable Ratchet & Clank game yet, dwarfing the size of both Quest For Booty and QForce. We’ll be bringing you more news soon.
