Today, taking to Twitter, developer Naughty Dog revealed brand new concept art of The Last of Us Part II, its highly-anticipated PS4 exclusive shipping in May. More specifically, the official Twitter account for the California-based developer announced a special new partnership with Cook and Becker to release a series of gallery-quality prints of concept art of the game. Of course, the prints aren't cheap, and there's only a limited number of them, but, at the moment of publishing, they are already available, though who knows for how much longer.
At first glance, the concept art doesn't seem to reveal anything, but it does reaffirm that the game has a terrific art direction. That said, if there's one thing of note, it's the last picture of Ellie sitting next to a dog, suggesting she could have a canine companion in the game. Now, Naughty Dog hasn't said anything about this, so, who knows, it could be a random dog, but it's interesting nonetheless.
