New Uncharted (Novel) Confirmed For Fall 2011

Who knows if we'll have an Uncharted 3 to play a year from now, but at least we can be certain that we'll have a new Nathan Drake adventure we can read. The first Uncharted novel hits next fall.

Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth will be written by Christopher Golden, an author whose novels include The Ferryman, Strangewood, The Gathering Dark and a slew of Buffy The Vampire Slayer adventures.

Official plot details from the press release issued by publisher Del Rey:

Nathan Drake will embark on an all-new, original, action-packed adventure-in search of a secret that will put him on the trail of the legendary labyrinth of Daedalus, and take him from the ruins of Crete to a secret crypt deep in the heart of China!

The book won't necessarily be canon, a spokesperson for the publisher explained to Kotaku: "It's a standalone adventure, intended to not impact the continuity of the game stories. It's not necessarily a prequel or a sequel.

Scant details, but Nathan Drake's Uncharted exploits seem book-worthy to me. Agree?
