The announcement follows recent teases on the official PlayStation Facebook and Twitter accounts showing an obscured purple planet, and the text “When Worlds Collide”.

The upcoming game will return the series' more traditional action-adventure roots, rather than the duo’s most recent outings, the co-op-focused Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and 2012’s Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault

According to an IGN preview, the upcoming game will add a range of new weapons, including the Nightmare Box, an item that scares enemies or forces them to attack it; the Repulsor, which causes enemies to hover in midair; the Winterizer, a weapon that plays Jingle Bells, and transforms adversaries into snowmen; and two new types of grenades.

Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus is also said to include Portal-style gameplay that will use other new item, the Grav Tether. Sidekick Clank will be fully playable, and players will take direct control as they pilot him through 2D platforming and puzzles to unlock additional areas. The game will be available on-disc and as a digital download.
