Naughty Dog: “Lots of clues” in Last of Us trailer

Watch it again. And again. And again.

The debut trailer for Naughty Dog’s new PlayStation 3-exclusive The Last of Us is more than meets the eye, according to Naughty Dog co-president Evan Wells.

Speaking to the PlayStation Blog at the Video Game Awards, both Wells and Naughty Dog co-president Christophe Balestra commented on The Last of Us‘ most surprising accomplishment: remaining secret for so long.

“We were surprised we were able to keep the secret for so long, because we’ve been adding a second team for a long time now,” said Balestra.

“I think it’s unprecedented in the video game industry to hold a secret like that for this long,” added Wells.

“Keep watching the trailer over and over again – lots of clues and little teasers in there about what the game’s about, but you’re going to find out more in the coming months.”
