This Is Why Uncharted: Golden Abyss Isn’t In The Nathan Drake Collection

The PlayStation 4-exclusive Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection is missing one of Nathan Drake’s best adventures, and that is Uncharted: Golden Abyss. Many have been wondering why the PlayStation Vita game was not making an appearance in the Nathan Drake collection, and now Naughty Dog has revealed their reasoning.

According to community strategist Arne Meyer, they actually were considering adding the game into the collection. Here’s what Arne said during a panel at EGX 2015 last week:

“It was definitely under consideration, because we were trying to see how we could collect all of the Uncharted games, but when we went back and looked at what we were trying to do with the Nathan Drake Collection, we realized that those three games – the trilogy – actually provided a particular narrative arc that led into Uncharted 4. We wanted to keep that as a holistic collection for that reason, and Golden Abyss kind of lives a little bit outside of that.”

While it kind of makes sense, it’s still weird to call a game the Nathan Drake collection and not have it contain all of Nathan Drake’s adventures. I’ve played Golden Abyss and love it, so hopefully they find some way to add it in later on.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection Graphics Comparison Shows Big Improvements

While the video goes tackles a lot of things, the best moment comes when we get to see the game put side-by-side with the original PlayStation 3 version. Everything looks much more vibrant and detailed, and with the original games still looking impressive to this day that is saying something.

Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection launches on October 9 exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
