In The Last of Us Remake, as shown by the Naughty Dog Central Twitter page, there is a shot in which a Mortal Kombat II poster can be seen on the wall. This shot is taken from a cutscene in the Left Behind DLC update for the game.
A fun fact, one of Naughty Dog's very first games was a fighting game called Way of the Warrior, which was a glorified MK clone, which obviously flopped. Naughty Dog are clearly fans of MK, and perhaps in the spirit of the upcoming Mortal Kombat 30th anniversary, they felt it was the right time to pay homage to the iconic fighting game franchise. And it surely is an awesome one at that.
