Today marks just one month to go until The Last of Us Part II launches on June 19. What better way to celebrate than with the reveal of a brand new collection of The Last of Us Part II Limited Edition hardware? We’ve worked closely with the teams at PlayStation to design and create a new Limited Edition The Last of Us Part II PlayStation 4 Pro Bundle, Limited Edition DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, and Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset, as well as a Limited Edition The Last of Us Part II Officially Licensed Seagate 2TB Game Drive--all of which will be launching alongside the game next month.
Head over to the PlayStation Blog to learn all about them, but for now, check out the gallery below and this quote from our own John Sweeney, Art Director on The Last of Us Part II, about the design inspiration for the Limited Edition The Last of Us Part II PlayStation 4 Pro:
When we first revealed The Last of Us Part II, we had no idea how quickly fans would embrace Ellie’s tattoo. Within a day, we started seeing real-life versions showing up on social media and fans have been sharing photos of their new tattoos with us week after week ever since.
When the opportunity arose to create a custom PS4 Pro for The Last of Us Part II, I worked with our graphic designer at the time, Angel Garcia, and we considered a few different ideas, but we kept coming back to Ellie’s tattoo. By that point, it had become a symbol of the game and for the community--much like the Firefly logo in the first game. It was the clear choice, but we wondered: what if it could be engraved? It hadn’t been done before, so we weren’t sure it was even possible, but thanks to the incredible efforts of the teams at PlayStation, we found a way.
The result is something we feel is really special--a design that honors the passion of our incredible fans and that we ourselves would be proud to own.
We can’t wait for you to see it in person and for you to experience The Last of Us Part II for yourselves!
