Uncharted 3′s The Last of Us Reference
There’s a The Last of Us reference in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.
The Last of Us is a PlayStation 3 exclusive that’s set to be revealed this weekend at the Spike TV Video Game Awards. This past weekend, a teaser site for the game went live with a post-apocalypse feeling trailer and a viral video that referenced a fungus using bodies to grow. Yesterday, a new screenshot featured a newspaper talking about the end of humanity and quarantine zones.
Well, today, the folks over at iWaggle have posted a video from Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception. During the bar fight at the beginning of the game, players can walk over to the dartboard and spot a newspaper on the bar. The headline of the paper reads “Scientists are still struggling to understand deadly fungus.”
Very interesting — is The Last of Us fungus the same as the Uncharted fungus? Could Uncharted and The Last of Us happen in the same universe? Could developer Naughty Dog be behind this new exclusive? Is Naughty Dog just friends with whomever is making The Last of Us? Is this all just a joke? Come back to IGN this Saturday to find out.
And thanks to IGN reader David Porges for the tip!
