Insomniac Games and Sony have revealed the identity of the mystery project the pair has been teasing over the past few days: Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. The new single player platformer, which is billed as an epilogue to the R&C Future saga (Tools of Destruction, Quest For Booty, and A Crack in Time), is slated for release on PS3 this holiday, both in stores and as a PSN download priced at $29.99.

The story sees Ratchet and Clank lost in an abandoned sector of deep space, where they uncover an inter-dimensional event that threatens the universe. Insomniac community lead James Stevenson told the PlayStation Blog that the game will introduce a bunch of “crazy new weapons and gadgets”, while gravity is one of the game’s themes: “you’ll experience zero-g space, you’ll use gravity-defying new gadgets, and you’ll manipulate gravity to solve brand new Clank puzzles”. Check out the first screenshots above and the debut trailer below.

In April, Insomniac announced that Ratchet & Clank will hit the silver screen in 2015. The duo and friends are being made into a feature film for theatres by Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment. Insomniac is also currently working on Sunset Overdrive exclusively for Xbox One.

    YES YES totally wanted a new Ratchet game but this better be the Ratchet that we all know and love not some new guy.

    I got really excited!!!... and then slightly less excited when I saw that it was going to be a $29.99 download. I really hope it's not too short, has the same basic form as core R&C games, and doesn't recycle most of it's weapons like the downloadable ones have in the past.

    I'm hoping the price has something to do with the fact it is on the PS3 at the end of its cycle.

    Yeah, the REAL continuation to Crack in Time and Future. All 4 one and that Tower Defense game were just fillers.
