Uncharted and Ratchet Sequels Set for Japan

Sony sets final names and shares Japanese language trailers.


Two major US PlayStation 3 releases are on the way to Japan. Sony gave official titles and teaser sites to the Japanese versions of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Ratchet and Clank Future: A Crack in Time.

Uncharted 2 (I'm writing about it first because the first is my favorite game so far this generation) will lose its number and be known here as Uncharted: Ougontou to Kieta Sendan. This translates literally to "The Golden Sword and the Missing Ship Fleet." Glad they went with Among Thieves!

Sites for Uncharted and Ratchet. Do you have the katakana skillz to tell them apart?

In contrast, Ratchet and Clank is getting a number added to its name. The game will be known here as the far less imaginative Ratchet & Clank Future 2.

Uncharted 2 hits Japan this Fall at a currently undisclosed price. Access the game's official site for screens and a Japanese language trailer (it's just the original debut trailer of Nathan waking up in the airplane).

Ratchet and Clank Future 2 hits this Winter. Its official site also has screens and a Japanese language trailer.
