Answering the question "if there's a Crash Bandicoot remake, why aren't Naughty Dog doing it" was the announcement of The Last of Us Part II. Set to be a continuation of the story and featuring Joel and Ellie in the post-apocalyptic wilderness in which we left them, the second game will be a PS4 exclusive.
In this teaser trailer, we see how Ellie has aged a little, and got a fair bit more vengeful. Turns out she's got some pretty good pipes on her too, and she's not too bad with a guitar. Even in a zombie-filled apocalypse it turns out, there's still time for a little folk music.
