An upcoming videogame titled Uncharted: Fight for Fortunate has been revealed by the Australian Classification Board, suggesting a new game in the popular Sony-published, PlayStation-exclusive series (thanks PlayerAttack).
Fans getting excited for a new big-screen adventure from Nathan Drake should manage their expectations however, as the developer listed for Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is not Naughty Dog, but rather One Loop Games, which according to its official website is a new Los Angeles studio founded by former SOE Studio Head Shalom Mann, and Technical Director Jason King, and Pandemic veteran Steve Leff. The company's Facebook Page currently describes the studio as one that "makes video games for social networks along with the occasional title for XBLA and PSN".
One Loop Games only mentions two "secret projects" in the works, one of which is described as "it's [sic] first big game" and "unlike nothing you've ever seen before" (heart unintentional double-negation).
The only other hints offered by the classification listing are the words "multi platform" (which doesn't confirm much, as the Vita-exclusive Uncharted: Golden Abyss was similarly described), and the G-rating, which indicates only "very mild impact" violence and drug use, with nothing in the way of adult themes, language, nudity or sex.
Given the traditional Uncharted games have all been rated MA15+ in Australia, and involved shooting dozens of armed assailants and the odd supernatural creatures, we can only speculate that Fight for Fortune will be some kind of casual or social title, perhaps involving some manner of family-friendly battling in pursuit of riches.
