The new Uncharted game in development for Sony's freshly-announced NGP handheld is being put together by Sony Bend Studio, rather than franchise creator Naughty Dog.
According to Game Informer, the title – which is a new game rather than a port of Uncharted 1, 2 or 3 – is being developed by the internal Sony team responsible for PSP titles Resistance: Retribution and the Syphon Filter franchise.
However, Naughty Dog will be "overseeing" development to ensure it matches the standards of its PlayStation 3 series and doesn't take any wild narrative liberties.
Sony hasn't unveiled plot details or a release date for Nathan Drake's new portable outing. Uncharted 3 however, arrives on PlayStation 3 on 4th November.
