Yesterday we announced that UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves will be hitting store shelves on October 13. Don’t forget to pre-order your copy of UNCHARTED 2 at a participating retailer today. Special offers are available at Amazon.com, Best Buy, Game Crazy and GameStop. I know many of you can’t wait until October, so if you’re at Comic-Con this week be sure to stop by the PlayStation booth – we’re booth 5200 in the Exhibit Hall – where we will debuting some brand new, never been touched outside of Naughty Dog, UNCHARTED 2 gameplay for you to experience and it’s hands-on!
In addition, if you are at Comic-Con and interested in meeting Naughty Dog or some of the voice actors in UNCHARTED 2 – including Nolan North, Claudia Black, Emily Rose and Robin Atkin Downes – they will be taking part in a panel this Thursday, July 23, at 5:30 PM in room 6A on the Upper Level of the San Diego Convention Center (maps can be found on the Comic-Con website.) Greg Miller of IGN will moderate the discussion on how the Naughty Dog Engine 2.0 and the innovative motion capture process at Naughty Dog enables them to create the first active cinematic experience in a video game. With this group of personalities, I guarantee it will be a lot of fun and we will be unveiling some new footage that you will not want to miss.
Lastly, for the collectors out there, I am happy to tell you that we have entered a partnership with ESC-Toys to create Nathan Drake vinyl toys. The man behind the design is Esc-Toy’s founder/designer Erick Scarecrow. Erick is well known in the industry for creating some of the most sought after customs, vinyl and plush collectibles out there. He is also well known for the work he has done for recording artists, including the late and great Jam Master Jay of RUN DMC, Bad Boy Entertainment, Def Jam, and others. I have included a few images of the vinyls below.
Let us know what you think! More info to come on release timing but we are aiming for this Fall, they will be limited to 2500 pieces world wide, so start stalking your local vinyl stores!
