Naughty Dog is making a game that doesn’t star Nathan Drake! But we knew that already. We also knew that The Last of Us has been keeping a low profile as we head towards the build-up to E3. Luckily, there’s a new clip from the game to remind us just how awesome things are looking.
On top of a new clip, we also get a new Ellie, the young, female heroine who we won’t actually control during the game. When we first met Ellie many people commented on how similar she looked and sounded to actress Ellen Page. The character is, in fact, being played by actress Ashley Johnson.
In an interview with website IGN, the game’s creative director Neil Druckmann claimed that the changes to Ellie were done so as to “better reflect [actress] Ashley’s personality, and also resemble a slightly younger teen more fitting to the story”. Hit the jump to see the clip; it’s some nail-biting stuff!
