Naughty Dog are known for their Easter eggs, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy has a bunch. There are Last of Us references, mountain yoga exercises, and more games of Marco Polo. Long-running Easter eggs continue, and brand new ones surface — and we’re going to show you how to find them all. It’s all very simple, but like any good Easter egg, they’re really easy to miss.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy follows Chloe and Nadine, previously secondary characters in the Uncharted universe, and sends them on a dangerous journey to the heart of India in search of yet another ancient civilization. Originally slated as a small additional story chapter for Uncharted 4, The Lost Legacy blossomed into a massive mini-adventure that stretches over 5-7 hours of gameplay, featuring the biggest map in the entire series. That’s nothing to sneeze at.

The Lost Legacy Easter Eggs
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is full of Easter eggs, and we’re going to break them all down for you right now. Let’s get hunting.
A Very Strange Skull
Later in Chapter 8, Chloe will just barely escape a crumbling metal tower with her grappling hook. At the top, you’ll need to make another precarious grappling hook swing across a long gap and land on train depot structure with open windows. Before jumping to the windows, you’ll want to pause, because there’s an awesome Last of Us Easter egg nearby.
While swinging to the windows, look down below the grappling hook branch to spot a tiny little area. Lower the rope and hop into this corner to discover the very well-hidden Strange Skull. No, this isn’t an actual strange skull, it’s a plastic toy! Shake it to read your fortune, just like a Magic 8-Ball. The Strange Skull first appeared in Last Of Us: Left Behind, a similar stand-alone expansion pack to The Last of Us, a different Naughty Dog adventure.
For examining the object, you’ll earn the “Shake For Your Fortune” trophy.
Yoga And A View
Here’s an easy secret thing to miss. In Chapter 4, while hunting for the three temples in the truly massive map area, Chloe can take a pit stop at a tower dead center on her map. This tower, once you enter the main chamber up top, can be used to mark the locations of the three weapon-themed forts.
But, there’s more to this little temple. You can use one of the open hatches to climb to the very top. If Chloe stand idle at the tiny peak for long enough, she’ll begin to do yoga! She does some pretty death-defying moves all the way up there, and the animations last for upwards of ten minutes. That’s a lot of yoga, and a whole lot of motion capture to keep hidden in a hard-to-find spot like this.
Near the end of Chapter 5, after escaping the collapsing building after solving the shadow puzzle, Chloe and Nadine will sit and look out at the active aqueduct in the far distance. Nadine will walk right — go left instead!
Immediately turn around and drop into the small pool. Chloe will attempt to play a quick game of Marco Polo — this is a long-running Easter egg from the franchise. It’s been in practically every game, with Nathan Drake taking a dip in a pool and offering the familiar call-and-response. Nadine is a no-nonsense kind of gal, and she refuses to play any of Chloe’s games. Sorry, denied.
For attempting to play Marco Polo, you’ll get the “Marco Po-No” trophy.
