Naughty Dog the studio behind the Uncharted series, Jak and Daxter and Crash Bandicoot teased a new game at the Video Game Awards this past weekend. The Last of Us is their newest game which seems to be taking on a kind of I Am Legend approach to the story. Some of the shots remind of the Will Smith version of the story from 2007.
The characters that you see in the trailer are Joel and Ellie. You might recognize Joel’s voice from the Bioshock Infinite trailers, that’s because he’s played by Troy Baker who also plays the pinkerton hero in Bioshock. Ashley Johnson is Ellie who you might have heard if you’ve seen Ben 10 or Teen Titans.
It looks like Naughty Dog is trying to hit on the survival/horror genre. It should be interesting.
The Last of Us doesn’t have release date yet but it will more than likely be on the Playstation 3.
