Europe is getting two special editions of The Last of Us and Sony has provided a couple of new videos to give us a better look at what each edition contains. The Joel and Ellie editions each include the same stuff, the only difference is that either Joel or Ellie’s face will adorn all the extra goodies.
So you’ll get the game, a canvas wrap, mini artbook, mini comic, screen print poster, a PS3 dynamic theme, digital soundtrack, two exclusive avatars, a PS3 controller skin, and LittleBigPlanet costume. There’s also a bunch of extras for the multiplayer consisting of items, currency, experience points, a stronger melee attack, and two bonus skins for Joel and Ellie.
North American players will be getting a special edition as well, which includes a statue of Joel and Ellie. Neat if you’re into collecting extras that you’ll possibly not care about after a year or so.
UPDATE: Naughty Dog has Tweeted confirming that May 31st is the demo’s date. Original story follows…
We’ve known for a while that God of War: Ascension would pack a demo for The Last of Us, but we didn’t know when the demo for developer Naughty Dog’s latest would go live. Well, we still don’t know for sure, but we’re narrowing down the dates.
On the back cover of God of War: Ascension, a footnote reads “Estimated availability for The Last of Us demo is April 2013. SEN [Sony Entertainment Network] account and internet access required.” Seems like that would be the end of the story, but when you click to access the demo from the God of War: Ascension main menu, you get a black and white image of Joel and Ellie along with a countdown clock that’s set to end on May 31, 2013, at 9 a.m. Pacific/noon Eastern/5 p.m. GMT
