All Articles: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus
The last pre-PS4 PlayStation Store update is full of this Fall’s biggest PS3 releases…
- 2K Games released the alien invasion expansion XCOM: Enemy Within.
- WB Games released a bigger Injustice: Gods Among Us package with the “Ultimate Edition.”
- Ratchet & Clank rode off into the sunset in Insomniac’s Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus.
- And Sony expanded the Wonderbook line of games with Diggs Nightcrawler and Walking With Dinosaurs.
Also available this week is a Cross-Buy version of Flower that will add the title to the game library on your PS3, Vita, and PS4.
It can be a little intimidating to jump into the epilogue of a series when you’ve only sparingly dabbled in the franchise throughout the years. But Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus offers everything one would expect it to; steady gameplay with outlandish upgradeable weapons and some wise-cracking humor to go with a no frills sci-fi adventure. A few new mechanics have been added to spice up the mix to make Into the Nexus a solid but brief final entry that doesn’t go out of its way to be great as Ratchet and Clank ride off into the sunset with the PS3.

Part One of this year’s next-generation console extravaganza begins this week with the launch of PlayStation 4. If you haven’t already ordered one, Sony’s new machine may be hard to find, but peripherals like the PS4 Camera are plentiful. However, if you have the next-gen plunge, here’s what gaming opportunities you can expect to see on store shelves this week:
- Angry Birds Star Wars
- Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag
- Battlefield 4
- Call of Duty: Ghosts
- FIFA 14
- Injustice: Gods Among Us – Ultimate Edition
- Just Dance 2014
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- Lego Marvel Super Heroes
- Madden NFL 25
- NBA 2K14
- Need Foe Speed: Rivals
- Skylanders Swap Force
If the next-generation of consoles is still a bit too expensive for you (or you’re waiting for the impending Xbox One launch), there’s also a few current-generation games to keep us busy this week. XCOM: Enemy Within, the expansion to last year’s massively well-received XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will be released for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. And the possibly final voyage of Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus, will be released for the PS3. Finally, Mario & Sonic square off again in Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games on the Wii U.
There’s more new games where those came from and you can find a complete list of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Sony has announced that Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will be available for the PS3 on November 12. In the past, Insomniac has referred to the game as a “fun size” adventure and it’ll carry a budget price to match ($29.99 in stores and on PSN).
Now then, let the lovely people at Insomniac explain how the game was made by watching the video above. And be sure to read all about the special Pyronox Armor (which is available as a pre-order bonus) at the PlayStation Blog.
While Sony may see the PS3 as the sputtering jalopy parked next to the shiny, new sports car that is the PS4; there’s also a crusty, old mechanic standing next to the console, ready to give it a slap and a, “There’s still some life in the old girl.” this folksy tableau is a way of saying that Sony announced a brand new Ratchet & Clank game for the yesterday, and that it’ll be available for the PS3 by the end of the year.
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is in development at Insomniac and is considered a “return to form” for the series. After the family adventure of All 4 One and the competitive aspects of Full Frontal Assault, Insomiac wanted to return to the more “traditional” gameplay of Ratchet’s “personal story arc.”
You can watch the first trailer above, which gives you a look at some of the crazy new weapons Ratchet will have at his disposal (because, of course he will) as well as the game’s signature gameplay hook: zero gravity. Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus has been priced at $29.99 and will be available in stores and as a PSN download this holiday season. You can get out a few screenshots at the PlayStation Blog.
