One of The Last of Us: Part II’s most touching moments is something you could skip entirely. During the Seattle Day 1 chapter, Ellie and Dina take some time out of hunting down Abby by exploring a music shop filled with instruments. And on the second floor, the budding couple has a good old sit down as the protagonist discovers a guitar in tip-top condition. This leads to Ellie’s rendition of Take On Me by a-ha and Naughty Dog vice president Neil Druckmann has shared on Twitter what that looked like during rehearsals.
As you can see, we have Ashley Johnson as Ellie and Dina’s Shannon Woodward taking up the exact same positions the in-game lovers do. It’s a beautiful moment that helps to break up the intense combat sequences which surround it, proving that there’s still some love left in this post-apocalyptic world.
