IGN: What can you tell us about the storyline? The trailer hints at a treasure and a curse. What sort of background are we looking at?
Wells: Unfortunately, at this time, the hints in the trailer are all that we can reveal about the storyline so far.
"Hints in the trailer", he says? After reading that phrase, I promptly decided to play the video again, and examine it closely. Nothing remarkable (storyline wise) on the action scenes, not that I've noticed at least. However...
Let's take a look at the final image instead, the one with the logo. This one:
See the island above the "D" in "Dog"? It has a label that reads "Ilol de la bermud". That could be portuguese, not sure, but it's close enough to the spanish language for me to translate: Isla Bermuda. Bermuda Island.
Does the name Bermuda sound familiar to you? It sure did to me. Have a look at this:
That is none other than the Bermuda Triangle. One supposedly "cursed" place where ships mysteriously disappear. Hm, did I say curse? The trailer sure mentioned a curse too.
So, let's do a comparison now:
Some shapes are a bit off... but it's supposed to be an ancient map - cartography wasn't exactly mastered at the time it was drawn. Even so, similarities are striking.
Could this be true? Or am I thinking too much about it? Will Naughty Dog prove my theory to be completely wrong? Discuss. =P
Here's a bigger and clearer image of the map:
Other names are readable now, "Cuba", "La Florida", "Porto Rico"...
Yep, it's the Bermuda Triangle region (Bermuda Isle - Miami - San Juan) no doubt. Also, I forgot to mention how the trailer references how "Some things lost should never be found"...
Come on, Naughty Dog. Prove me right, please =P
