Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus Gets a Box Art & Official Description, Pre-Orders Begin

As we let you know just a short while ago, Sebastian was at PlayFest today, and upon returning, he’s actually decided to work, despite running on 2 hours of sleep.

Now, one of the playable games at PlayFest was the recently announced Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus. Since it was a choice between either playing the game or “stalking” Mark Cerny, he wasn’t able to get his hands on time with Nexus, so we present you the next best thing, the box art!


Along with the box art, retailers have already begun taking pre-orders (Amazon.ca, GameStop), with more being added later. And, in case you’ve missed all our coverage on Into the Nexus this week, here’s the official game description:
