Ratchet & Clank: Before the Nexus is an endless runner for mobile

The Ratchet & Clank series is running, endlessly, to mobile. Ratchet & Clank: Before the Nexus is a brand new game for mobile platforms that has you hopping between grindrails while avoiding hazards and collecting bolts. Best of all, it actually looks like a real game (screenshot above).

Before the Nexus will tie into the upcoming Into the Nexus on PS3, by letting you sync up your PlayStation Network account and transfer Raritanium from the mobile app to upgrade your weapons in the PS3 game.

The upcoming app is part of Sony's initiative to bring more of its franchises to mobile platforms. Knack for PS4 will also launch with a companion app.
