To hell with the PlayStation 4, long live the PlayStation 3! Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus, one of the best reasons not to go next-gen this fall, now has a release date. It's not just any release date, either. Available starting November 12, Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will be going head to head with the PlayStation 4's launch titles. Who will win? Why, us gamer's win, naturally.
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will act as an epilogue of sorts for the three "Future" games that preceded it on the PlayStation 3 (Tools of Destruction, Quest for Booty, A Crack in Time). Perhaps that serves as the best explanation for Into the Nexus' shorter format and $29.99 price. Will Into the Nexus be wrapping up a story, or preparing us for a new one entirely? Described as a "small epic" whatever Into the Nexus is, it will be exactly what fans have wanted since A Crack in Time.
In addition to the reveal date, Insomniac also revealed Ratchet's Pyronox armor which will be available as a preorder bonus at certain retailers. The fancy red space-suit will offer the wearer 5% damage reduction, but at what cost!? Check out the header image for a look at the suit.
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus will launch November 12 exclusively on the PlayStation 3, both digitally and through retail. Revisit one of Sony's best exclusive franchises for the PlayStation 3 one last time and cross your fingers that we'll be seeing more of our favorite duo soon.
