Don't know if this has been posted yet but here's the original.

Also, why is Joel bald, and why is his melee weapon now a machine gun? And who put those explosions in the background? And where the hell did those bikini models come from?

Shitty, both because it invizibilizes a non-tokenized girl character (which are so few and far between), and because it apparently was done without the consent of Naughty Dog.

Is there a version of that art with Ellie in it? Curious to see if they photoshop'd her out, or merely cropped her out of frame.

It's almost like there's sexism in the gaming industry.

No, that can't be it.

Woah guys, might just be the fact that the cover looks nice and centered. I agree it's odd but without seeing the original that cover looks good.

Maybe they thought the picture looked better with a single character, but it's probably sexism.

They probably sent a layered PSD and they just turned off the Ellie layer.

What a weird thing to do. Granted I'm not going to get up in arms over the girl part, I haven't played the game so I have no idea about the character, however to do this and insult the developer like that is just bullshit.

If ND gave them a pic to be used that had both characters, then it should have both damn characters.
