The Last of Us: Joel and Ellie Editions Detailed

Naughty Dog has announced The Last of Us special editions for Europe.

They are named Ellie and Joel editions and are two separate ones named after the main protagonists in the game that is said to be released on May 7th. The contents of the editions are pretty good and you can check them out below.

These are exclusive to specific retailers though. The Ellie edition will be only available at GAME, while the Joel edition will be available at Tesco and other shops. The latter is what you can buy if you live in other European countries and cannot buy from GAME for some reason.

  • Exclusive Game Pack: The Ellie Edition showcases the character Ellie on the game pack artwork, while the Joel Edition will feature Joel’s face
  • Collectible Poster: An exclusive screen print effect poster of each character can be found in their respective editions
