UPDATE: Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is a casino card game for PS Vita, the Brazilian ratings board has revealed.

Eagle-eyed gamers on NeoGAF spotted the classification and, helpfully, translated it.

Sony declined to comment when contacted by Eurogamer this morning, but worldwide studios boss Shuhei Yoshida tweeted about the game overnight. So yeah,

ORIGINAL STORY: What is Uncharted: Fight for Fortune?

It's a video game that popped up on the Australian Ratings Classification Board overnight. Sony Computer Entertainment is the publisher, and One Loop Games is the “author”.

What is One Loop Games? According to its website, it's a “cutting edge, full-service game development studio”. The team is “small, focused, and driven to developing great games that you'll want to play over and over again”.

It's worked on Star Wars Episode 3, Full Spectrum Warrior and The Saboteur for console, and for mobile God of War: Betrayal, Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile, Spider Man 3, Wheel of Fortune and James Bond: Casino Royale. Perhaps this is why fans are speculating that Uncharted: Fight for Fortune is a mobile spin off, perhaps for PS Mobile.

According to its website, One Loop is working on two secret projects. One of these, its “first big game”, is finished, but it can't tell anybody about it yet. “Suffice it to say, it's unlike nothing you've ever seen before - and it's really fun! When you see it, you're going to love it! Hopefully we'll be able to announce it soon!” Is this Uncharted: Fight for Fortune?

Or maybe it's Secret Project number two, which One Loop is working hard on right now. “Unfortunately, we can't make this one public yet until we get a little further along on the project. Check back often, as we'll be making an announcement about this one soon!”

One Loop was founded by Shalom Mann, the former senior vice president and studio head of Sony Online Entertainment in Los Angeles, so the Sony connection is well established. His focus at Sony was on making games for PlayStation Network. Is Uncharted: Fight for Fortune a PSN game for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita?

A cursory glance at Shalom's LinkedIn profile shows he is "currently in deep production on an unannounced title for the PlayStation Vita". Is that Fight for Fortune? He's also got "additional titles in development for mobile, and XBLA/PSN".
