First Uncharted Novel Scheduled For Late Next Year
Well sure, if they're doing a movie, they should do a book, too.
According to Kotaku, the first novel based on the award-winning Uncharted franchise will hit bookstores in the fall of 2011. It'll be called "Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth," and it'll be penned by author Christopher Golden, who has produced such titles as "The Ferryman," "Strangewood," "The Gathering Dark," and a bunch of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" tales. The summary for the "Uncharted" book, which was provided by Del Rey Publishing, reads:
"Nathan Drake will embark on an all-new, original, action-packed adventure-in search of a secret that will put him on the trail of the legendary labyrinth of Daedalus, and take him from the ruins of Crete to a secret crypt deep in the heart of China!"
Yeah, we know what you're thinking, but forget it. A spokesperson clarified that the novel will be a "standalone adventure, intended to not impact the continuity of the game stories" and it's "not necessarily a prequel or a sequel." Well, that's all right. At least it might get the fans to read something, which nobody seems to do anymore. This type of book isn't my thing, really, but it should still be great for fans of both the awesome game series and action/adventure stories.
