Naughty Dog recently celebrated The Last of Us Day on September 26. The developer announced several new upcoming items, including some digital bonuses.
The Last of Us Day, which was tentatively called “Outbreak Day,” but changed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, was a celebration of all things related to the popular series.
Some of the first few announcements were for scale figures. The developer is teaming up with Mamegyorai Amazing Works for a limited-edition Joel and Ellie 1/9 scale figure of their appearances from the first game. The figure is currently available until supplies run out.
Gaming Heads has announced two Ellie statues from her appearance in the second game. In one statue, she is holding a bow and arrow, while in the other, she is wielding a machete. A board game based on the game is also currently in development.
We're still in awe of this The Last of Us Part II-inspired art created by the one and only Yoji Shinkawa of @KojiPro2015_EN for #TheLastofUsDay.

Yoji Shinkawa, known for his work on the Metal Gear series, also provided artwork to celebrate the new event. The artist created an illustration of Joel, Ellie, and Abby in collaboration with Kojima Productions.
The artwork is displayed with low saturation, with only a hint of color on the figures. The artwork is a must-have for fans of both The Last of Us and the Metal Gear series.
