Uncharted: Golden Abyss, an Uncharted game for the Sony NGP/PlayStation Vita, has just been revealed by Sony and Bend Studio. Details are a bit sparse as to the plot, but we know the game stars Uncharted hero Nathan Drake, and introduces a new character, Jason Dante too. According to the developers, it takes place before the events of the first Uncharted, but is not a prequel... I'm not sure how that's possible, but that's what they tell us.

According to Bend's creative director John Garvin, the NGP is the only handheld that could possibly handle an Uncharted game. "This is the first Uncharted game on a handheld device, because the NGP is first handheld that could do a game like Uncharted," Garvin told us. "We're doing rendering techniques that have only recently been done on the PS3 -- things like deferred shading and advanced real time lighting. we have something like 150 shaders on the characters and on the environments."
