Uncharted: Fight for Fortune Is a Card Game for PlayStation Vita

Posted by Sammy Barker


Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake has dealt some deadly punches over the years, but never a full house. Reports emerging over the past 24 hours have pegged a new casino card game for PlayStation Vita named Uncharted: Fight for Fortune. Thus far, the title has appeared on Brazilian and Australian ratings boards – and the rumour was even retweeted by Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida.

According to the various leaked listings, the handheld title is currently in development at One Loop Games. The studio – founded by a former Sony Online Entertainment employee – admits that it's working on a top-secret Vita release. What's that famous saying about cats and bags, again?

Regular readers will recall a trading card DLC pack being rumoured for Uncharted: Golden Abyss. It never emerged, but it's possible that it grew into this. Either way, we could certainly settle for some more small screen escapades from Drake and co – even if it is in Top Trumps form.

@JavierYHL Is THIS really what it needs? o_O
I feel like it's just taking a card game and slapping the Uncharted brand on it.

Why this sort of game? I rather have to wait for a game and get something like gravity rush than precious resources coming in this sort of games.




I find myself agreeing with @Savino and @Sanquine a little bit here.

This game is of course a harmless addition to the catalogue, but let's be honest, it's not going to shift any systems.

Sony have had a great crop of releases for the Vita as of late, big licenses and great games, and as I say, while this isn't going to do any harm, it seems a little pointless.

Would any of you buy it? @get2sammyb would it even get a review?



Savino said:

I am more inclined to think that they should not put efforts in those kind of games right now. It costs money and man/hour to do even a simple game and, to be honest, we have lots of cassino/card games around in our mobile devices, we really dont need one more.

Sure, it will not make the vita sell less, but it will not make it sell more either, and time was wasted.

And yes, I agree with you, they should not just bother releasing games... At least, not those kind of games.

I can see where you guys are coming from, but let's wait and see what the game looks like first. There's lots of scope to do something a little different with the Uncharted franchise, and I doubt Sony's putting a whole lot of resources into a game like this. It's being developed by an external developer concentrating on mobile games — so clearly it's going to be cheap and cheerful. It could be fun.

This might be worth playing, but it's going to have to be ridiculously cheap and good before I consider biting.
