Naughty Dog finally released Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, the long-awaited sequel to one of the PlayStation’s most popular and critically-acclaimed franchises, this week. Much like Nathan Drake’s penchant for locating relics from the past, there are quite a few interesting Uncharted facts to be dug up. Naughty Dog is a company that likes to go the extra mile with their games, and it shows with the sheer variety of cool details that can be unearthed with this series.
Here are a few bits of Uncharted trivia that you may not have been aware of.
12. Ottsel Wetsuit
Naughty Dog loves to stuff their games with Easter eggs, especially ones that reference their own games. While some are easier to spot than others, there’s a pretty good chance you missed a reference to one of Naughty Dog’s other franchises near the beginning of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. In the first chapter of that game, Drake is outfitted in a wetsuit. If you look closely, you can see that the wetsuit is branded as “Ottsel,” the made-up animal species that the character Daxter is in the Jak & Daxter series. There are a few other Jak & Daxter callbacks throughout the Uncharted series, including the Strange Relic treasure, which is actually a Precursor Orb (but you probably already knew that).
