Uncharted Trilogy Art Book Coming this Spring From Dark Horse Comics


Continuing a partnership that has already produced excellent books including The Last of Us: American Dreams, The Art of The Last of Us, and The Art of Naughty Dog within the past year or so, Dark Horse Comics and Naughty Dog are now set to publish The Art of the Uncharted Trilogy on April 28th.

As indicated by the title, The Art of the Uncharted Trilogy will contain artwork and developer commentary encompassing the core PS3 titles Drake’s Fortune, Among Thieves, and Drake’s Deception. (I guess Golden Abyss from the Vita didn’t make the cut since it was only overseen, not directly developed, by Naughty Dog. Plus, adding a fourth game would have ruined title options, because something about the word trilogy in a title just sounds right.)

Anyhoo, The Art of the Uncharted Trilogy will be 240 pages long and retail at a list price of $39.99, though pre-order prices at online storefronts like Amazon and Barnes & Noble are already starting below $30.

No disrespect intended to Dark Horse–I am a happy owner of a number of their art books–but part of me wishes Ballistic Publishing still had a partnership with Naughty Dog and Sony. Ballistic’s sadly short-lived ‘Art of the Game’ series, which previously covered Uncharted 2 in a standalone book (along with God of War 3 and Gears of War 3), produced some of the highest quality premium video game art books around.
