When a fairly new franchise comes out with a sequel, it's always a concern for those who did not play the original title whether or not they'll need to catch up on their game backlog in order to have sufficient experience for the next one.
However, Naughty Dog made sure that this won't be a problem for their Uncharted sequel, Among Thieves, as they reassure the gaming public that there will be "no experience needed" here.
GamePro's issue #47 holds an interview with Evan Wells, and here he was caught saying that their devs are "making sure that you do not need to know about the experiences Nathan Drake had in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune to understand or follow the story in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves."
Glad to know that the titles are still independent from each other. This means that we should have just the fair amount of familiarity and a new adventure awaiting us in the fields of the prettiest snow we'll ever see.
