The Last of Us Day kicks off tomorrow, the official annual event in celebration of Naughty Dog’s beloved action/adventure game, bringing with it new merchandise and fun activities for fans. That includes two awesome new statues, discounts on The Last of Us content, a vinyl OST release, a free PS4 theme, photo mode competitions, and more.
Today’s information comes by way of a PS Blog post from Naughty Dog senior communications manager Scott Lowe. It’s worth noting that in addition to everything announced today, Naughty Dog says there are a few more surprises in the pipeline.
Vinyl Soundtrack Release + Posters
First up, Mondo is set to debut a special vinyl release of The Last of Us Part II Original Soundtrack, as well as two new posters.
All will be revealed and available for pre-order tomorrow starting at 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET/6:00pm CET. Head over to Mondo’s site for more information.
The Last of Us Board Game
Next, there’s a The Last of Us board game in development! There’s not much in the way of details to share, but we do learn that it’s being made by CMON, makers of Bloodborne: The Board Game and God of War: The Card Game, to develop a brand new board game for The Last of Us.
Abby Cosplay Guide
For Abby mega-fans interested in cosplaying the character, Naughty Dog has put together a detailed cosplay guide that can be downloaded from the game’s official website.
Two new statues are available to purchase, one 16 inch figure with interchangeable arms that comes in three different versions from GamingHeads, and another 1/9 scale of young Ellie and Joel from Mamegyorai Collectibles.
