Uncover an inter-dimensional event in deep space.

Update: Sony has confirmed Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus as a $29.99 PlayStation 3 title heading to both disc and digital formats this fall. The PlayStation Blog has a post up here and IGN has the first preview here. Watch the debut trailer below. See the first set of screenshots at the gallery.

Original: Sony’s “When Worlds Collide, Heroes Return” teaser is indeed for a new Ratchet & Clank title. Leaked via Insomniac’s website (now taken down), the game is called Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. A platform was not mentioned, so whether it’s on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, or PS Vita is still up in the air.

Find the full story outline and feature set from the website below.

Ratchet and Clank are back! The beloved duo return with an original single-player epilogue to the acclaimed Tools of Destruction and A Crack in Time. Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is a story-driven platform adventure with humor and heart, featuring outrageously upgraded weapons, extreme planet hopping and brand new worlds begging to be explored. Into the Nexus marks a true return to form for the acclaimed series.

After one of the most infamous manhunts in galactic history results in the capture of Vendra Prog, Ratchet and Clank offer to escort the dangerous criminal to the Vartax Detention Center. After a daring orbital jailbreak at the forgotten edge of the galaxy, Ratchet and Clank find themselves lost in an abandoned sector. There, in deepest space, they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe—and forces Ratchet to decide what’s really important.


  • A return to the Future – Series protagonists, Ratchet and Clank, return along with Captain Qwark, Talwyn, Cronk and Zephyr in a brand-new, story-driven single-player adventure.
  • Even more crazy weapons and gadgets for your arsenal – Arm yourself with a variety of exotic new weapons and gadgets, including the Winterizer and Nether Blades.
  • Clank strikes back – All-new gameplay offers inter-dimensional challenges where Clank can alter gravity, manipulate objects and solve mind-bending platforming puzzles.
  • Discover new worlds… and the dangers of space – Traverse through the zero-gravity of space and explore a mysterious sector filled with new planets to explore along with hidden dangers and dark secrets yet to be uncovered.

Below is a screen capture from the game’s debut trailer, which was linked on the web page, but is currently to private:

      I think Captain Quark should get his own game on the VITA.

    I’m guessing this is a PlayStation 3 title.

    I don’t recall Insomniac being on the PS4 developer list. Which is weird, considering their relationship with Sony (which hasn’t gone bad, like some have suggested, considering this new Ratchet game).

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    So much for all stars 2 or JakXR

  • Elvick

    PS3 or PS4.

    I’m hoping for PS4. I’d like to see them take advantage of that hardware. I can’t imagine this game looking much better than what we’ve already seen of R&C on PS3. (which is great mind you)

    Insomniac doesn’t make handheld games. So if it would be a Vita game (which based on that screen, doesn’t seem like it would be) then I would be jaw drop level shocked.

    Plus, I think in terms of sales R&C would be better to move to a new platform. There are already a ton of PS3 games for the series.

    Besides, by the time the R&C movie comes out and boosts the IP. People will likely be looking for PS4 titles, not PS3. And they can then pick this up.

    Awesome! :)

    I’m guessing PS3 if it’s an Epilogue to the Future series.

    EDIT: IGN just said it was on PS3.

    It’s PStreezy.

  • bloodiOS

    I think the game is very likely going to be a cross-gen title.

  • Elvick


    YouTube for those who hate IGN’s player (like me~)

    Also $30. It’s considered their biggest “downloadable” game on the PS Blog, so they’re putting it at retail as well like they did for FFA.

  • DarthBrian

    Just watched trailer and IGN’s first look video and I am all aquiver with anticipation. :D

    Been waiting for this forever.

    I want it so bad!!!

    And only $29.99. o_O

  • whiteferrero

    Happy times are here again!
    Here’s to hoping the disco ball gun thing is in here! :D

  • Sae-Won Yoon

    Someone I know actually assumed it to be a Jak title since the teaser image resembled a Rift from Jak 2.

    So much for predictions; that said, this is pretty cool.

  • Hating Ass Nigga

    !!!!RED FLAGS!!!!!
    Really hope this isn’t some 2-3 hour piece of shit.

  • King-Podigy-X

    WTF man, make a next gen Ratchet & Clank game.

  • rockman29

    only $30? Sign me up!

  • MrRobbyM

    You best believe I’m going to pre-order that with a trailer like that…but mostly because it’s a true R&C game for $30.

  • Adol Christin

    I was hoping it would be a new Vita title :(

  • McPoo

    Seriously, who cares anymore? As far as I can tell, nobody gives a shit about Ratchet and Clank anymore, and quite rightly too.


  • DragonSix

    Is it me or does it actually looks better than Knack?

  • http://www.rpgplayer.org MechaMefi

    Finally a real Ratchet game. After Crack in Time there’s nothing good.

    30$? Hell Yeah. I would pay all of 60$, but if is cheaper, good for me, and good for all the R&C fans.

  • Bobby Jennings

    Wait, $30? And where the multiplayer?

  • Tracy

    Sony still amazes me with more exclusive games for the PS3,I love the R&C franchise,didn’t care too much for the last game (R&C:FFA)but I’m looking forward to this.

  • xMCXx

    Love how the PS3 still gets a ton of exclusives, even though the PS4 is almost here.

    $30!? Here I thought console games can’t go that cheap…

  • EspadaKiller

    Oh man I hope for a next gen Ratchet and Clank game.

  • Gilgamesh2025

    So it IS a ‘Ratchet and Clank’ game! Sweet! ^^
