Early access to Hogwarts Legacy has inspired one player to use the game’s character creator to look like Ellie from The Last of Us.
This gamer’s action bridges a gap between two distinct gaming communities.
Some people are getting inventive with Hogwarts Legacy’s features even though the game hasn’t even been published yet.
In the nearly 10 years following The Last of Us’s debut, many gamers have come to see Ellie as one of their all-time favorite video game protagonists.
Due of her popularity, Ellie’s tale and persona have been honored in several ways throughout the years.
The Last of Us’ Ellie has become one of the most recognizable video game characters because to fan-made fan art and fan hacks that put her in other games.
The new Harry Potter action role-playing game, Hogwarts Legacy, has a huge fan base, and one such fan recently chose to replicate Ellie’s likeness while playing the game’s early access.
While there’s enough to do in Hogwarts Legacy, one Reddit user by the name of Shoni89 decided to put in a little more time with the character builder so that Ellie might attend the famous Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
This photo of Ellie was posted by Shoni89 on the official The Last of Us subreddit, and the resemblance is striking.
A total of over 3,000 upvotes at the time of this writing suggests that many other fans feel the same way.
Many players have been waiting for Hogwarts Legacy to come out so they may make their own characters, but Shoni89’s recreation proves that any character from any game can be brought to life in Hogwarts.
Many players will be able to take on the roles of their favorite characters from previous games if they have an eye for detail and the patience to locate the suitable character traits.
Although it hasn’t even been released yet, Hogwarts Legacy is already shaping up to be one of the most successful video games of the year.
There’s no knowing what innovative players will find and do when the game launches on February 10.
It will be interesting to watch what players come up with once the game is open to everyone, from homages to beloved characters from other games to recreations of prominent characters from the Harry Potter books.
