Naughty Dog won't make an Uncharted without Nolan North

Sony Computer Entertainment's Naughty Dog would never make an Uncharted game without the hugely talented actor Nolan North - the voice of series front-man Nathan Drake.

Asked how integral Nolan North is to Uncharted, game director Justin Richmond told VideoGamer.com: "He's a huge piece of it. Nolan is a great partner. When we sit down and create these things, he will come in and put his stamp on it. The way we shoot this… Nolan's with us the whole time, for two straight years, basically."

So there's no chance will see an Uncharted game without Nolan North? "Not unless they made us, or something," said Richmond. "If we're making a game about Drake, Nolan's going to be involved in it, for sure." (Nolan North, PS3, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception)

Thank you ND. <3 It wouldn't be an Uncharted game without the guy!

They've basically just offered Nathan a blank cheque for Uncharted 4 then.

I want an uncharted 4, but it'd be great if they made a crash game again.
koehler83  +   919d ago
They don't have the Crash IP anymore. Haven't for years. I don't think it was ever owned by Sony. Pretty sure it was Universal's.

ND is way past that kiddy crap. Lets not make our most talented, mature developer develop a kiddy game.
TopDudeMan  +   919d ago

Never before have I heard of crash being described as "Kiddy crap". You sir, are an embarrassment to the gaming community.
Drekken  +   919d ago
Okay Topdudeman - compared to Uncharted, Crash is a mature game. Right? Wrong.

Its a cartoon platformer with no mature dialog or situations of Uncharted. ND has grown up and my advice to you is to do the same.

I wonder if Nolan North is big enough 2 where he can get a small piece of the sales of games he's in
Royalties basically.

Maybe not, but I'm wondering what it would take.

He's my favourite voice actor

I really love how they make Uncharted, Everytime I hear it in an interview, everytime I see a Video of Naughty dog, I can FEEL they have fun making the game!!
Nolan North is awesome, so is naughty dog, they belong together! :) its great Sony is allowing their developers such freedom and they can use their money for what they want. great! LONG LIVE PLAY!

He's a fantastic actor and the series wouldn't be the same without him.His personality is the reason why people love Nathan Drake as much as they do.
belal  +   919d ago
i really can't choose between him and david hayter, both are great voice actors :P
lorianguy  +   919d ago
Absolutely terrific news. He IS the main guy after all, at least in terms of voice acting and motion, whom the uncharted series is loved for.

I also hope treyarch don't continue to produce Richthofen without him. He does a great Richthofen voice.

I hope they change chloe's voice cludia black voice acting is weak compared to north's voice
