Nintendo Switch’s The Last of Us Knockoff Removed from eShop

The Nintendo Switch game, The Last Hope, which was criticized for resembling Naughty Dog's popular title, The Last of Us, has been removed from the eShop. It appears that Sony filed copyright strikes against the game, leading to its removal from sale.

While the reason behind the game's removal is uncertain, it is noteworthy that the title's YouTube trailer also received a copyright strike from Sony Interactive Entertainment. This suggests that PlayStation's legal team took issue with the blatant similarities between the two games and the attention it was garnering from the media.

The Moldovan studio behind The Last Hope may have found itself in hot water this time. We will reach out to Sony, Nintendo, and developer VG Games for further information to gain a better understanding of the situation.
