Uncharted Prequel Motion Comic on the Way

With the sequel to Naughty Dog’s highly regarded action series now on store shelves, there is little doubt that the developer’s next major project will be Uncharted 3. It would make sense for Naughty Dog to consider investing more time in this franchise, especially since Among Thieves was welcomed by critics with open arms. However, it looks like fans of the franchise will have something else to look forward to first, and get this, it’s not a game.

Ever wondered how the over ambitious treasure hunter got his start? Well, it looks like gamers will get to take a look into Nathan Drake’s back-story when the series gets its first motion comic, which will serve as a prequel to the original Uncharted. According to Sony’s PlayStation Blog, Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann explained their plans for this unique prequel. “We’re releasing a prequel story to Uncharted 1 as a motion comic voiced by your favorite actors from the two games,” he wrote.

It’s clear that Naughty Dog has created a compelling universe with Uncharted, but is a motion comic the best move? Let us know what you think!
