The recently announced Ratchet & Clank: Nexus (known as Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus in North America) has been picking up a number of headlines due to not only it’s unusual unveiling, but also it’s return to the classic Ratchet & Clank formula. The development team at Insomniac Games has been paying attention to the audience reaction and has commented on the change of pace for the series.
“All 4 One and Full Frontal Assault [aka QForce] were different. We know that. We made them that way. After years of refining the core Ratchet formula, we wanted to experiment and branch out a bit.” States a company representative in official communication to fans. “We’re proud of what we accomplished with them, but you know what? We’re excited to get back to our roots. Let’s make another kick-ass classic Ratchet & Clank game where you turn reptile baddies into snowmen, laugh at Qwark’s lovable incompetence, jump from platform to platform, become the Harbinger of the Apocalypse for crates, explore vastly unique planets, manipulate gravity, slap Clank on your back, and save the whole damn galaxy.”
Ratchet & Clank: Nexus is set to release exclusively on PlayStation 3 this winter. The videogame has a recommended retail price (RRP) of just $29.99 USD in North America, so is likely to be offered at a budget price in the UK also. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on Ratchet & Clank: Nexus and other forthcoming titles from Insomniac.
