    Remember that leak for a new Uncharted game? One that was suspiciously titled as a card game? Well, it looks like it's now official, as Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is, well, an Uncharted card game for the Vita.

    The game is a versus card game, similar to competitive card games like Magic the Gathering or YuGiOh. The rules will be a bit more apparent in the actual game.

    However, the interesting feature is that the game features some compatibility with the Vita's own Uncharted game, Golden Abyss. Collectibles in Golden Abyss can be used to power up cards in Fight for Fortune. So if you wanted a reason to nab those Mayan artifacts outside of trophies, here it is. It also works fine as a standalone game though.

    The game will launch for $5. It apparently contains an 8-hour single player campaign and asynchronous multiplayer, basically meaning you can play whenever. Think of Words with Friends for example, you take your turn, send it to a friend, and they take their turn whenever is convenient.

    Take a look at the trailer yourself and see what you think!

    This is by far one of the strangest decisions I have ever read about, but for 5 dollars I can't say people are getting ripped off.

    Yeah, I read the Youtube comments (always a bad decision) with people going "WAY TO CRUSH MY DREAMS". I mean the game was known to exist since the leak, and, for $5, it seems like a pretty worthwhile package. Gives your Golden Abyss more replayability, eight hours of single player isn't bad, and the multiplayer functions seems interesting (maybe you can actually use that 3G for something now).

    They should make that kart-racing game already.

    I guess the fight to improve the Vita's fortunes star now.

    Don't bother using "It's going into uncharted territory on this one" or something along those lines because I already used that pun in the thread about the leak.

    Seems like you're all too busy fighting for fortunate puns to realize they're all taken.

    I guess Sony "Unkarted" that idea.

    Nope, terrible.

    THE VITA IS SAVED! ;o;

    All jokes aside, it honestly doesn't look good at all. I mean, I'm not really a fan of card games like that, but it just looks really unpolished.

    I guess for $5, you get what you pay for, but still...

    I liked that one because I was thinking "UnKarting" would be a good name for an Uncharted kart racer. It works satisfactorily as a pun as well.

    As for the game, I don't expect it to be a super in-depth card game like Magic (speaking of which, port fucking Duels of the Planeswalkers onto the system already) but the Vita has really needed some asynchronous multiplayer game since 3G was announced. I would've preferred Words with Friends or SongPop but this'll do I guess, provided it isn't completely broken.

    The main thing to factor in is the $5 price tag so even if it is an average game, it's only $5.

    I do have to wonder which guy decided that the only thing Uncharted was missing was a card game. And what else can we expect?

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the rhythm based God of War spin off.

    I think that could actually work. Smash the buttons in line with the music to allow Kratos to brutally some mythological character.

    Well if you put a speed metal soundtrack to the God of War quicktime events it's just a rhythm game anyway.

    Guild making fun of a Sony game *gasp* But apparently you only insult Nintendo!


    Seriously though I can't say I understand where they are going with this.

    It's just a fun card game based on the franchise. I mean they've made card games for just about everything, this is just that but for Uncharted and digitally.

    At $5 it's sure to get some impulse buys and encourages people to buy Golden Abyss already if they haven't (or subscribe to PS+ as it's on the Vita roster).
