A new gameplay video for Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus—narrated by creative director Brian Allgeier—shows off Ratchet’s gravity-manipulating gear and new gravity-defying 2.5D game mode.
“One of the big focuses for Into the Nexus is gravity,” Allgeier says in the video. “This is something that Ratchet games have explored with spherical worlds, and Into the Nexus goes further by incorporating gravity manipulation in both our weapons, gadgets, and new game mode.”
The game mode in question appears about four minutes into the video, when Clank is sent to a pocket dimension where he can bend gravity at will. These portions of the game play like a 2.5D side-scrolling platformer.
Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus launches on PS3 November.
