by Colin Moriarty NOVEMBER 7, 2012

It looks like PlayStation gamers will be getting more Nathan Drake. Why? Because the Australian Classifications Board seems to have unveiled a new game in the Uncharted series.

Multiple sources have reported on the seemingly unintentional reveal, most notably GameSpot, which was re-Tweeted by Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida, all but verifying that the game is real.

So what does the classification listing tell us? Well, quite a bit, as it turns out.

For starters, the publisher, not surprisingly, is Sony Computer Entertainment, which owns the Uncharted franchise. What's strange here is that the developer of Fight For Fortune is a studio One Loop Games. The Uncharted trilogy on PlayStation 3, as well as the PlayStation Vita iteration in the series, were developed in-house by Sony-owned developers Naughty Dog and Sony Bend, respectively. It appears this entry will leave the first party development stable.

One Loop Games' website shows a picture of both an Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The company claims its "team has over 30 years of interactive entertainment experience behind it," with projects having appeared on XBLA, PSN, and elsewhere. Interestingly, the studio worked on God of War: Betrayal and Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando, indicating it already has a relationship with Sony. The studio also had a hand in the development of consoles games like Full Spectrum Warrior and The Saboteur.

The rating also indicates that Fight For Fortune may not be your typical Uncharted game. Australian games are rated in six categories: Themes, Violence, Language, Drug Use, Nudity and Sex. Each of those categories can be ranked from "none" to "high impact", with four other classifications in between. Fight For Fortune scores a "none" in Themes, Language, Nudity and Sex, with "very mild impact", the next step up from "none", in Violence and Drug Use. (Its overall rating -- G -- indicates a "General" game with "content... very mild in impact.")

Now, Drake and his friends have never been known for running around naked or using drugs -- so there are no surprises on that front -- but the four Uncharted games have, so far, relied a great deal on death-by-gun. So perhaps Fight For Fortune is something that deviates from the Uncharted formula. We'll have to wait and see.

Interestingly, the game is also listed as being multi-platform. Since Sony owns Uncharted and is publishing the game, this could very well indicate that Fight For Fortune is a cross-play PS3/Vita game. Or perhaps it's a PS3/next-gen game. Again, we'll have to wait and see.

We've reached out to Sony for official comment, and will update when we hear back.

Not liking the fact that Naughty Dog is not at the helm. Also, no gunplay? If that's true, then the whole direction changes. And that's just lame.

And people complain Nintendo milks their characters.... all companies do it because there is money in it.

They could put out an Uncharted game every 6 months and if they are as good as they have been I'd buy every one.

Yeah, you can milk anything with nipples.

I don't disagree on a personal level, I love Uncharted. I just find humor in people complaining about Nintendo reusing the same characters, meanwhile.... I think you get the point.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:26:26 AM PST
Well, they could release a Zelda every week and if it's good I'd play it.

I agree. I have argued that using the same characters doesn't make the game redundant and a clone. Carrier was more of a rip of the original Resident Evil than Resident Evil 4 was. Same characters can still result in a new gameplay experiences. Meanwhile a 'new IP' could very easily be the same type of game we have played before. Overall I care more about gameplay innovations/creativity then what character is the star.

20 something mario/ mario spinoff games just on the wii is hardly even in the same ballpark as uncharted for you to even begin comparing them.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:34:08 AM PST
See? This would be so much easier if you just typed something like "Flores comment", we know this already.

Believe me if Sony had IP's that were as high profile and successful as Mario they would be doing the same exact thing.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:36:05 AM PST
You mean an accurate statement becomes a "flores comment"?
I like that...

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:36:28 AM PST
Glad they don't.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:37:07 AM PST
Yes, exactly what I meant.

Accurate, heh.

You're glad the company you worship doesn't have successful IP's? Well it's Sony so I guess that makes sense.

Very interesting, and we care why now?

Did I say interesting? I meant not interesting.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 7, 2012 6:42:09 AM PST
The Playstation brand has plenty of successful characters. Sony just doesn't make 19 games featuring one of them on a single gen. And I'm glad for that.

So how do we spin this the Sonymite way?

Maybe this will be a 98 rated Metacritic poker gamer with impecabble animations and dude bro voice over humor?

Do we play strip poker with Elena or Chloe?

Or could this be a really cool themed card strategy game ? Probably not.
