The Last of Us gets a pair of special editions for protagonists Joel and Ellie

Sony has released a pair of trailers for Naughty Dog's upcoming post-apocalyptic survival title The Last of Us showing off the game's special editions.

Both special editions essentially contain the same things: A mini artbook, the game's soundtrack, a single-edition comic book, a character poster, a PlayStation 3 wireless controller skin, and a Sackboy costume for LittleBigPlanet. The editions also contain digital content like a custom wallpaper for the PS3 XMB dashboard and the Survival Pack DLC. The only difference between the Joel and Ellie editions seems to be which character is featured on the posters, packaging, and Sackboy skin.

The two trailers are largely the same, as well. You can watch the Joel edition trailer embedded below.

The Last of Us comes out as a PS3 exclusive this June.
