There is no doubt that Uncharted is among the top franchises in PlayStation's catalog, but it is time for Nathan Drake to sit out of the series' future on PS Vita.
Maybe the PS Vita version should have a new, younger protagonist, then UC 4 would have Nate, but this new protagonist would be a secondary character that ends up taking the place as the main protagonist at the end. So for Uncharted 5, instead of Nate/Sully you'd have new guy/Nate, with Nate being the mentor
That's a great idea! As a fan of both the franchise and the character the future of the series moving forward scares me; especially on Vita.
This is a BAD idea, this is EXACTLY how they go wrong on film sequels. Indiana Jones Crystal Skull new young protagonist? TERRIBLE. Die Hard 5 new protagonist? TERRIBLE. New protagonists are stupid, make a new IP if your going to do that. I want Nathan Drake.
I would NEVER want a new guy to replace Drake....it's then not Uncharted I don't mind spin offs doing it but not main games Sully's younger days should be on the PSV or maybe Cutter/Chole.
That's just it, Golden Abyss isn't a main game due to its lack of a number. The PlayStation Vita is a capable system, but not of competing with the PS4. Any games comparable to the console counterparts will be disappointing due to unfair parallels drawn between the titles. Give Chloe, Chase, Sully, or someone else a chance in the portable spotlight.
New guy/Nate/Greatgrandpuppy Sullivan What would also be quite cool is exploring more of Nate at say 16-18 years when he first takes a bad guys life and have Sullivan as the 45 year old hot head. Similar to the start of Uncharted 3 but a bit older.
In my opinion there is enough room in the Uncharted Universe lore to keep Nathan Drake as the main protagonist for Vita entries in the franchise. But I would love to see Sony do a Nintendo thing with more of it's succesful IPs, similarly to how the Vita version of Batman Arkham Origins(with Blackgate)offers a different type of game and thus gameplay or how the cardgame for Golden Abys expanded the Uncharted universe.
Would be funny and cool if a woman instead. Gravity Rush and AC3L :) The VITA needs a new game, period.
I don't know about a woman, certain people who don't own a PlayStation gaming machine would complaint that they want to rip off Tomb Raider
@Heavy Fair enough lol.
would be amazing a new Uncharted Vita Golden Abyss is just PERFECT!
uh... it's uncharted. it would not be uncharted if it wasn't nathan drake.
I personally would like Sir Francis Drake for UC4. As long as he resembled Nate, lol. EDIT: @below Damn. It's been a long time since I played UC3, lol sorry. Welp. I'm at a loss for ideas. Nate Drake 4EVER then!
Spoiler But we found out in 3 that he isn't related to Sir Francis Drake so it wouldn't make sense (he came up with the name himself)
Thank you... what's uncharted without drake. i was reading some of those comments thinking wtf,why would that even seem like a good idea. Like coolaid with no sugar.
Ive heard this argument before with Cole and Infamous.
@logicwins I still feel like that with Cole and the new inFamous. I love the inFamous mini franchise but for me the story ended with the second. I will still get the next one but I hope the story doesn't ruin what has happened before (it is bad enough how "convenient" the set up is for the next one)
^^Although Sucker Punch doesnt want to admit it, Second Sun is set in an ENTIRELY different universe where Cole, Zeke, Trish, and Kuo never existed. Infamous has become an anthology (concept of superheroes remains the same, but the characters change). This is how Sucker Punch plans to keep the series fresh.
Nathan could easily be replaced by another cocky dark hairred white guy. As long as the concept remains the same, the next Uncharted protagonist could be Sir Francis Drake, a young Sully, or anyone else pretty much...and Im betting ud still buy it too.
I'd bet your full of it logic but you normally are which is why i seldom respond to what you post. The games are about drake and sullys adventures and the crap they get there selfs into.
No, Uncharted is a popcorn action adventure movie in videogame form. Drake and Sully are merely the characters that drive the action. They can be replaced easily, especially considering that their story ended in UC3 as every loose end in the franchise was closed. Drakes lineage or lack thereof to Drake is explained and him and Elena are together again. Dont be surprised if Nathan isnt the lead for UC4(if that game even exists).
There nothing to suggest that drakes going just settle down at the end of uncharted. He geting married or so the game looks but that dosn't mean he done or that the series with him in it is over. Each uncharted game is a self contained story.i'm not sure why they even number it.When it comes to infamous which i don't really follow to much ,sucker punch said there are lots of references to cole in second son. In fact they said the events from good cole are the reason for them going in the direction they did. I'm unsure where you get entirely different universe when it's still related but your entitled to your opinion.
Uncharted needs more supporting character or villian, but new protagonist. Hell no.
How come Nintendo can use the same main character for 25 years and no one complains but sony can't? Drake needs to stay tuvm.
Idc what they do just make another one...to this day uncharted is still the best game on the vita visually
I think they need to stick with Drake the vita version needs to tell the story up to the first Uncharted game before anything like introducing a new character I would like to find out what happens to the girl that is in golden abyss why she is not in the first Uncharted I have a feeling that is why he was so against having a relationship in the first game.
What Uncharted needs is a fourth installment on PS4. Like... ASAP.
maybe a young sully spin off..or Chloe
I kinda want some more chloe vs elena drama lol. It was entertaining in Uncharted 2! Hottest spin off ever haha
I don't think they need a new protagonist because this is not Assassins Creed and even though Nolan North Both Nathan and Desmond it still doesn't need to be done. Thats like having God Of War without Kratos . Just don't do it. Nathan is young strapping and good at what he does. There is no need to replace him.
Young Sully adventures would be awesome!
IMNSHO the Vita doesn't need these type of games at all Port more jRPGs pls, rails adventure for the yawn
No way. No nate means no buy fir me.
I would be in for a Vita game entirely on young Nate, focusing on stealth, stealing, platforming and running away. Not much in for Sully, Chloe would nice though
I would actually like the Vita games to follow Chase instead of Drake. She's a great character, and it would allow for a change of formula and mechanics. Rather than being just portable versions of the console games the Vita games could be their own series with their own feel and look.
Maybe I need Syphon Filter or Folklore on my vita
I need legend of the dragoon 2 for vita but another uncharted is alwasy good.
Sony really needs to get started on a new LotD game. I don't care if it's a remake, reboot, sequel, prequel, whatever. Just make it. PS4+Vita cross saves would be nice too.
It might be nice to see the franchise go in a different direction.
