It's not yet clear if the individual remastered games will make their way to the North American PlayStation Store, but we've contacted Sony for confirmation, pricing, and any other information they can share. We'll update this article as we hear back.
The fourth game in the series, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, released in May and was scored a 10/10 in GameSpot's review. It's set after the original Uncharted trilogy but features many flashbacks to various parts of Nathan's life, including moments spent with his brother Sam.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection received a score of 8/10 in GameSpot's review. Critic Mike Mahardy concluded, "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was a fine game in 2007, but its wrinkles are deeper now, its age more apparent. With Uncharted 2 and 3, though, Naughty Dog transcended Drake's own small beginnings. The Nathan Drake Collection is a firsthand account of Naughty Dog's growth as a storyteller, and this collection is the best way to relive that history, and witness its transformation up close."
