As GamesRadar reports, the most astute fans have discovered in the first episode of The Last of Us series some very clear references to Naughty Dog games. The one that has attracted the most attention is the one that is related to The Last of Us: Part 2 and Curtis & Viper 2, does it ring a bell?

In this first episode we can see Sarah (Nico Parker) gift her father Joel (Pedro Pascal) the movie Curtis & Viper 2. own Ellie talked about this movie at the beginning of The Last of Us: Part 2, where he tells Dina that he plans to invite Joel to see a movie: Curtis & Viper 2. And what is this movie about? Ellie never explains it, but describes it as one of those “cheesy ’80s action movies”.
It is quite likely that the rest of the episodes of The Last of Us series also hide clear references to the Naughty Dog games. Unfortunately, we are going to have to wait a bit to find out, since the episodes are released weekly on HBO Max. Episode 2 will hit the streaming platform at dawn on January 23.
While you wait for this release, we encourage you to give The Last of Us: Part I a chance, the remake of the original PlayStation 3 gamewhich now has a two-hour free trial for PlayStation Plus Premium subscribers.
