There was so much said in that live chat with Naughty Dog that we need to do two separate news headlines. Right, like you're tired of Uncharted 2 …impossible!
First up, lead game designer Neil Druckmann made an "exclusive announcement" that involved a special prequel story to the original Uncharted: Drake's Fortune . No, it's not a game, but it's a "motion comic voiced by your favorite actors from the two games." This will be known as "Uncharted: Eye of Indra" and will boast a brand new character in the form of a girl named Rika; we can expect more information on this before the end of the year (presumably). And hey, if you've got complete game save data from Drake's Fortune on your PS3, you get an awesome bonus: Druckmann also mentioned that those people will get an extra $100,000 to spend in the store in Uncharted 2 ! Now that's what we like to see; incentives for being on board the Drake bandwagon before it became the toast of the town. If you don't already own the first Uncharted , we'll shake an admonishing "shame on you" finger and point you in the direction of the nearest game store; it's a Greatest Hit that you can nab for only $29.99. It's a must-play, too.
Everyone is Uncharted 2 crazy these days, and so are we. Nothing wrong with talking about one of the single greatest gaming accomplishments to date, right?
