You know, that PlayStation Vita is capable of some lovely looking video games. Uncharted: Golden Abyss, for example, is one of the lovelier ones and not just because that Nathan Drake is so damn dashing.

Golden Abyss is more than just a pretty face, however, as Bend Studios' John Garvin kindly explains in this narrated walkthrough of what makes this portable Uncharted game special. Learn a little bit more about the on-the-go adventures of Nate and his new friends, plus how a few interesting Vita-only gimmicks are gonna work.

Our boys in Japan will probably be bringing you some hands-on impressions of Uncharted: Golden Abyss any minute now, but for some direct-feed footage, press play.
