Here’s that Uncharted card game you always wanted
Over on the PS blog, Sony has announced the next game in the Uncharted franchise. It’s called Uncharted: Fight for Fortune, and is an ‘action-adventure turn-based card game’ for the PS Vita. And no, we’re not joking.
Once you’ve picked yourself up off the floor (or removed your palm from your face), you may wish to watch the above trailer. It looks very similar to the card minigame in Rage (which was actually pretty good fun), so don’t judge it too harshly yet.
Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is being developed by SCE Bend Studio (another good sign), and will tie-in heavily with the team’s previous game, the awesome Uncharted: Golden Abyss.
Chris Reese, Co-Director of Bend, explained more about the game:
“The core gameplay involves creating a team of Faction cards featuring heroes, villains and mercenaries from the Uncharted universe, and using that team to defeat your opponent while defending yourself from their attacks.
Each Faction card can be equipped with powerful Resource and valuable Fortune cards, which enhance their stats and give them special abilities. Once you’ve selected and equipped a card, it’s time to head into battle!
During combat, attacks either reduce the health of opposing Faction cards or the health of your opponent. Defeating an opposing Faction card removes it from play, while reducing the health of your Opponent to zero wins you the game.”
If the studio’s previous work is anything to go by, then Uncharted: Fight for Fortune could be a great little companion game to Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Chris also mentioned that the release date is fast approaching, suggesting that we haven’t got long to find out.
