Uncharted: Golden Abyss is 'astonishing' NGP entry

New screens and details on handheld adventure

Sony's officially subtitled Uncharted NGP as 'Golden Abyss', and released new details and screenshots.

The new game's described by our inside man, OPM's Leon Hurley, as "every bit as good as Drake's Deception", and apparently it's "looking and feeling just as huge as the PS3 version".


The Bend Studio-developed entry, which is said to take place before Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, features touch screen controls that "actually add another dimension," according to Hurley.

"When climbing, for example, you can draw a line over all the points you want to clamber across and let Drake get on with it," Hurley reports in OPM's next issue. "You can also tilt the whole machine to swing and lean into jumps - a subtle but clever idea that you start to use without even thinking about it."

The portable game's story is also said to be "top-notch", with over two hours of motion-captured cut-scenes set for the final game.

Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra recently hinted that the handheld game will "most likely" interact with Uncharted 3 on PS3.
