The Last of Us Characters Look Awfully Familiar
Posted on December 14, 2011 by Shak
 

After watching the recent VGA trailer for "The Last of Us" we could not help but feel a sense of deja vu with the character designs, had we seen characters like this before in games, or real life actors? Well as it it turn out, it's both!

Below is a comparison of male protagonist in the trailer of Naughty Dog's "The Last of Us" and Hawke from Dragon Age 2, apart from a slightly more groomed beard there is little to differentiate the two.

Here is a comparison of the young female protagonist in the trailer, 'Ellie', compared with none other than Ellen Page. We are sure we aren't the only ones who instantly spotted the like to Ellen Page's charcter in the movie Juno. Surely her name and character design is not a coincidence?

There is still a long way to go with the development of the game, and Naughty Dog are prone to tweaking the character designs as they progress, but regardless of the similarities, the characters look amazing and incredibly detailed. We can't wait for the game and are eager to find out more about it.

everything is identical! They definitely used Ellen Page as reference, as for the Hawke guy, that had to be coincidence right?
