The Last Of Us


 

Naughty Dog has released a new trailer for its PlayStation 3 exclusive, The Last of Us, featuring a very subtle redesign to main character Ellie.

The latest video sees Joel and Ellie encounter an apparently wounded survivor while on the road. Turns out he’s not as injured as he’s making out. Those with eagle eyes may have noticed some slight changes to Ellie’s character model from earlier screenshots and footage. Her freckles are gone and she now has a slightly different shaped nose.

Creative director Neil Druckmann told IGN that the changes were made to make Ellie look more like her mo-cap artist Ashley Johnson.

“After delving further into the game’s narrative over the past few months, we decided to modify Ellie’s model to better reflect Ashley’s personality, and also resemble a slightly younger teen more fitting to the story,” Druckmann explained. “We’re happy with the final result shown in the cinematic we have released today, and hope the fans like her too.”

Actually, we think these small changes make her appear a lot older than she originally did, which probably fits better with her personality. Freckles say young to us, what can we say. Either way, the character, and this game, look amazing! Every new piece of footage we see from this game raises our excitement levels even higher, we seriously can’t wait until 2013.
