Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus coming to PS3 on Nov. 12
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, the epilogue to the Future games in the franchise (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, etc.), will be coming to PlayStation 3 on November 12, 2013, Insomniac Games confirmed today. It features an brand new story and an all-new arsenal of weapons and gadgets. And best yet, it's only going to cost $29.99.
"Some of you have asked us why we made a shorter Ratchet game," Insomniac Games community lead James Stevenson addressed on the PS Blog. "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," he said. "Think of it as a small epic."
In addition to today's release date announcement, Insomniac revealed Ratchet's Pyronox Armor, available as a pre-order bonus at participating retailers. The lightweight, durable suit grants a 5% damage reduction while offering a snazzy look. Additionally, pre-ordering via Amazon.com will net you the R&C-themed content for PlayStation Home -- a value of about $30.
