Ever since PlayStation Plus came to the PlayStation Vita back in November 2012, both Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Gravity Rush have been available for free. It was always known that they would be part of the Instant Game Collection for longer than a usual game, but the specific time frame was never nailed down.

Today though, Chris Howe, PS Store and Plus Content Manager at SCEE, took to the EU PS Blog and let us know when these games should be leaving:

When it was originally discovered that a card game based on the exploits of Nathan Drake was being made, I don’t think anyone jumped for joy or even really cared. Uncharted? Card… battling? The truth is that descriptors like “swash-buckling”, “handsome”, and “action-packed” are entirely antithetical to anyone’s sane perception of a card game.

That remains true today as Uncharted: Fight for Fortune fights for space on your PlayStation Vita. If you’ve played a lot of card games, Fight for Fortune might feel like an odd cross between Magic the Gathering and other resource-based card-fighters. While many of you might be tempted by Nathan Drake’s handsome, chiseled mug, I’m here to reveal that the Uncharted brand and card-battling are two great tastes that should never have been tasted together.

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is the latest installment in Naughty Dog's Uncharted franchise, but it is not what you might expect; it's a card game. Retailing for $4.99 on PSN for the Playstation Vita portable, Fight for Fortune can be had as a standalone game, but is at its best as a supplement to Drake's more traditional outing on the Vita, Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

If you are intimidated by the depth of card games, fear not; the developers have implemented a really easy learning curve. The eight-hour single player features characters from Drake's Fortune, Eye of Indra, and Golden Abyss. Expansion packs are available for $2.99 to add cards from Among Thieves and Drake's Deception.

Have you checked out that Vita game? You know—the one that's a shoddy spinoff of a big-name series?

Perhaps Call of Duty: Declassified, which currently has a whopping 32% on Metacritic? Or Uncharted: Golden Abyss, a game that our Kirk Hamilton called "a cut-rate version of the Uncharted games that most people have already played"? How about Resistance: Burning Skies, which Kotaku boss Stephen Totilo called "a mediocre new first-person shooter that has no excuses for underachieving"?

With the announcement that Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is coming to the PlayStation Vita on December 4th for $4.99, Bend Studio has released patch 1.03 for Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

The 83 MB update is more or less just to prep the game for Fight for Fortune’s card battling style gameplay, as you can see from the patch notes below:

Royale with cheese
There’s an elephant in the room, and its name is Super Smash Bros. No matter how hard I try, I can’t talk about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale without mentioning the fact that it’s a shameless knockoff of Nintendo’s beloved brawler. It’s so blatant, in fact, that I wouldn’t be surprised if there were high level design meetings where the team played Brawl together and had frank discussions about how much they could get away with stealing before the Big N’s lawyers came knocking down their door.

Uncharted: Fight for Fortune was only officially revealed this morning, but already the "fanbase" is up in arms and inconsolable at the idea that a spin-off game would dare to actually spin off from something. THE VERY IDEA!

At the time of writing, the Youtube upload of the game's trailer has 67 Likes to 124 Dislikes (Update: 225 Likes/583 Dislikes), and comments of outrage are pouring in. Sony's been accused of destroying its product, and wasting time that could have been spent on a Golden Abyss sequel. You already know what we did. Yep, we put our special JOURNALISM hats on and culled the very best comments from the video, displayed below for your sexual pleasure. Enjoy!

Earlier this morning, Uncharted: Fight for Fortune was confirmed to be hitting the PlayStation Vita on December 4th for $4.99.

Here’s a rundown of all the tidbits, in full bullet point glory:

Sony has officially announced Uncharted Fight for Fortune following the Vita game's outing by the Australian Classification Board earlier this month.



Chris Reese, co-director of Uncharted: Golden Abyss studio Bend Studio, which created Fight for Fortune with co-dev One Loop Games, describes the upcoming release as an action-adventure turn-based card game featuring the heroes and villains of the Uncharted universe.

Set for release on December 4 via the PlayStation Store for $4.99 in the US (Euro details to be confirmed), it's a standalone title which can also be linked up to Golden Abyss, with an upcoming patch for the Vita launch game enabling users to "power up the artefacts" they've collected for immediate use within Fight for Fortune.
