The title, The Last of Us Part I, falls in line with the original’s sequel, The Last of Us Part II, and is a way to help differentiate it between the original PS3 game and its PS4 remaster, The Last of Us Remastered.
The Last of Us Part I‘s cover is noteworthy because it features Ellie more prominently than Joel. It was the other way around on the original PS3 game. Back in 2012, Ellie’s actor, Ashley Johnson, said that Joel was centered on the original cover because some people were afraid that if a female character like Ellie was in front, then the game wouldn’t sell as much.
The game is expected to officially be revealed during Summer Game Fest’s kickoff event.
