Ellie’s Look Gets Tweaked As We Witness A Hunter Ambush
The drought of information for Naughty Dog’s next game The Last Of Us has had fans clambering for information, but ahead of some reveals at this year’s E3 we’ve been given a few minutes of in-engine cinematics in hopes of keeping us at satisfied. While it may not seem obvious, the trailer also debuts a slightly-modified look for main character Ellie. You can see the trailer for yourself after the jump.
In an interview with IGN, Creative Director Neil Druckmann explained that the subtle changes to Ellie, which include the removal of her freckles and reshaping of her nose, was done to create more of a natural association with her voice actress, 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.”
While it was always highly expected that we were going to get more information on The Last Of Us at this year’s biggest industry convention, the official Playstation EU blog has confirmed that we will be hearing more about Naughty Dog’s next project at E3 in June.
