Ellie takes on the role of the Hunter from Bloodborne and it kind of suits her.
Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II has been out just over a week and it’s, unsurprisingly, one of the top games everyone is talking about at the moment. Whether you’re for or against its brutely harsh and emotionally charged storyline, there’s no denying why it reached an impressive milestone as the PS4’s fastest-selling exclusive ever released. Its array of talented voice actors combined with stunning environments, The Last of Us Part II purposefully pushed boundaries in its narrative and character design. Many fans were glad to welcome back Ellie who, other than growing up in the years that have past, is the same smart-assed and feisty young woman we grew to love. But have you ever wondered “what if Ellie was the main protagonist of Bloodborne, how would that look?” Wonder no more, folks.
Twitter user Izzums has graced us with a wonderful, albeit a little jarring, fan art piece of Ellie but instead of the drawings we are used to seeing of Ellie, this time she takes on the decrepit Gothic, Victorian-era–inspired city of Yharnam in Bloodborne as the Hunter. In Izzums’ somber sketchings we see Ellie donning the hunter’s hat, the Beast Hide Garb draped over her shoulders and Ashen Hunter Gloves cover her hands whilst holding something that looks similar to the Rifle Spear. It’s certainly a very different look from the Ellie we all know and love who is never seen out of her jeans and chucks but going on what I’ve seen her do in The Last of Us Part II, there’s no human or beast she wouldn’t take on so maybe this is her true calling. Look out Bloodborne 2!
The Last of Us Part II has already and probably unsurprisingly reached over 4 million in sales and has become the PS4’s fastest-selling exclusive ever. Sony revealed the news on the PlayStation Blog today that as of June 21 the highly anticipated sequel has done extremely well in such a short space of time, overtaking PS4’s previous record holders, God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man. This news comes after we heard that in Japan, The Last of Us Part II became its top-selling first-party PS4 game selling 178,696 copies in total. If you ever wondered how The Last of Us Part II’s developers created those chilling sounds that The Infected make, you can check out Naughty Dog’s sound designer who delved into the process.
Naughty Dog’s Neil Druckmann has more information on whether The Last of Us Part II would have a DLC like The Last of Us: Left Behind. During a spoilercast with Kinda Funny Games, Neil stated that currently there are “no plans” to release DLC for Part II. But who knows, maybe we will see a DLC drop sometime into the future.
