Uncharted fans looking to take the adventures of Nathan Drake on the go won’t be left with a game that has a short campaign. Upcoming PlayStation Vita launch title Uncharted: Golden Abyss will actually have a campaign comparable in length to — if not slightly longer than — its big brother console installments.
NowGamer reports that they spoke to Sony Bend Writer and Game Director John Garvin, who commented about the length of the campaign in a comment about bringing a big PS3 franchise over to handhelds:
We tried to focus on the kinds of things that read well on a 5-inch screen versus a 50-inch screen Story for example: we have over two hours of cinematics in a game that is 10+hours long, so story is very important to us, just like it is on the [PS3] console.
Garvin also expressed much enthusiasm for the future of games on Vita:
A driving narrative that makes you care what happens next, that compels you to get to the next chapter… that kind of experience is possible no matter what kind of platform you are on. I’m sure all Vita developers would tell you that we’re just scratching the surface of what this device can do. I’m really excited for what we’re going to see in the next few years.
Uncharted: Golden Abyss is a launch title for PlayStation Vita, which arrives on February 22, 2012.
