*Not what you're getting.
This probably wasn't what fans had in mind when they demanded an Uncharted
game for Sony's handheld. A series of new ESRB ratings reveals a new pinball franchise, most likely under the PSP Minis
label, based on various first-party PlayStation properties. Pinball Heroes: Uncharted
is the most noteworthy of the bunch which according to the ESRB descriptor
, is based on Drake's Fortune
. "Players use flippers to hit the ball around a crashed airplane, into silhouetted character targets, and off bumpers shaped like gold coins to score points."
In addition to Uncharted
, other franchises will be getting the pinball treatment, including High Velocity Bowling
and Hot Shots Golf
. Wait, no Pinball Heroes: God of War
? That's a missed opportunity!
Unfortunately, no further details of the Pinball Heroes
franchise can be garnered from the ESRB listings. We're submitting a few questions to Sony (like "how much?" and "why?") and will update when we hear back.
