UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss for PS Vita – Meet Marisa Chase

Bend StudioUNCHARTED: Golden Abyss for PS Vita

Hi everyone! I’m the the writer and director of UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss. We’ve just released a trailer that introduces a new and important character from our story. You met Jason Dante in our E3 demo and learned a little bit about him: that he and Drake have known each other a long time, that they each know Sully, that Drake taught Dante a lot about treasure hunting, that Dante can be a little, well, greedy.

This time we’re introducing Marisa Chase. But as she tells Drake at one point, call her “Chase,” only her grandfather calls her “Marisa.” I don’t want to give too much away at this point, but I can say this: once again Nathan Drake finds himself on a quest to solve a historical mystery which he hopes will lead to a fantastic treasure. The trick is staying alive long enough to get there. No easy task. And when Drake gets between Dante and Chase, events quickly spiral out of control.

We were lucky to get some really great talent to play our key characters. Nolan North, of course, reprises his role of Nathan Drake. Nolan brings more than just acting to the story, he helps make the dialogue his own, creates funny ad libs on the spot, and helps rework scenes that might be having problems. Chase is played by the talented Christine Lakin, who you might remember as Al from the television show “Step by Step.” Dante is played by the amazing Jason Spisak, who’s played almost as many characters as Mr. North. Working with these guys and watching them bring our UNCHARTED world to life was amazing. I think Amy Hennig, the writer over at Naughty Dog, once told me that good actors can make even my bad dialogue sound good. Not that I have any… :)

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoys the trailer. There’s more information on UNCHARTED: Golden Abyss coming soon.

All I needed was one title to convince me to buy Vita, God of War :) But I guess now I can just buy this game and keep the hope for a God of War on Vita.

+ x0xave on August 17th, 2011 at 1:25 pm said:

There probably will be a bundle later on, so I think I’ll wait!! I have my 3DS for now! I’ll be buying anything Uncharted, but I’ll have to see if it’s worth to buy…..


+ MarinoBrea on August 17th, 2011 at 1:56 pm said:

Is there going to be multiplayer for this game? I’m expecting “no” for an answer, but I really do hope Sony reconsiders this and add the feature, in some kind of way, even online-coop missions would be great, Uncharted 2 fans love those.


+ ThreeLeggedFreak on August 17th, 2011 at 2:07 pm said:

Will this game have multiplayer? Co op and or competitive? Will it have some kind of connectivity with Uncharted 3?


+ CloudBelmont on August 17th, 2011 at 2:21 pm said:

Wow, looks really good.


+ Shinra_Soilder on August 17th, 2011 at 2:50 pm said:

The game is looking great. Uncharted 3 then Golden Abyss?! The more Uncharted the better. Sure there are other games like Resistance, Assassin’s Creed, Street Fighter X Tekken and more but Uncharted is more exciting than all those combined. This game will be the main reason for me getting the PS Vita. A Uncharted bundle would be a huge selling point for me as well!


+ lisatsunami on August 17th, 2011 at 3:17 pm said:

The trailer looks fantastic. A taste of how awesome gaming on the Vita will be. Pre-ordered long ago. Now I’m just impatiently waiting.

I love Nate & I love Nolan playing him.

Vita PS when you leave the games are compatible with the PSP?


+ BrodiMAN on August 17th, 2011 at 3:34 pm said:

Love me some Uncharted. This looks good on the Vita.

Vita release date please….like now please….

I know that some PSVITA games are getting online multiplayer, like LBP and wipeout 2048, but I wonder if this game is going to get online. I know that Uncharted mayor strength is its SP campaign; but wiil it get online multiplayer and co-op just like U2 and U3??

I am saying this because, at launch the PSVITA will be put to the test of reviewers so if the console features online gaming, reviewers will ask “why its flagship launch title game doesnt has it”.

I really dont care if it has it or not; but the gaming media and gamers new to the franchise will consider it a plus.

I dont know what the other launch titles will be but I can say that I will get PSVITA at launch just for this game :)

Keep the good work Sony and Bend Studios.
PS: Now Sony needs to buy Ready at Dawn so we can have more GOD OF WAR!!!! XD

Am I the only one that thinks that there should be a Jak and Daxter logo on Nate’s backpack like Cole with his Sly pack?


+ SogeKing on August 17th, 2011 at 7:04 pm said:

Yes. Yes you are.


+ slydaniels on August 17th, 2011 at 7:07 pm said:

“Open to everyone, but don’t be a jerk.” XD


+ Red__5 on August 17th, 2011 at 10:02 pm said:

Oh man! just can’t get enough of Uncharted! definetly my favorite franchise of this generation, good thing I will have Uncharted 3 to tie me over until Golden Abbys comes out. This will definetly be my first game purchase for PSV when it launches, I just hope this game is also a launch title, this and LBP (whatever it’s called for the Vita).

John, you and the rest of the team at Bend Studios are doing a fine job with this game, keep up the good work, I’m sure you will not dissapoint.
