Either tomorrow will bring a new announcement on the Uncharted franchise, or PlayStation is celebrating April Fool’s Day early. PlayStation Norway’s official Facebook page has posted an image of Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen with the word “Uutforsket” splashed across his face. Well what does uutforsket mean, you ask? The rough translation is “unexplored,” but we know better — in this instance, it says “Uncharted.”
Nansen’s claim to fame is crossing Greenland on an expedition to reach the North Pole. Nansen and his team reached a record northern latitude of 86°14′. His polar travel techniques paved the way for a generation of Arctic and Antarctic expeditions.
PlayStation Norway’s photo of Nansen is accompanied by a link to a teaser site showing the date “22.03.2012” stamped over a map. It is worth noting that Uncharted 3 received similar reveal treatment from Sony Denmark. Whatever this is, we’ll know by tomorrow.
