The Last of Us appears on Jimmy Fallon, confirmed for 2013

Naughty Dog has confirmed that The Last of Us will absolutely, positively, pinky-swearingly be ready for retail in 2013. Studio developers Bruce Straley and Neil Druckman confirmed the release window last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as part of the show's “Video Game Week” promotion.

The announcement was accompanied with The Last of Us's “Ambush” demo, previously seen running at E3 2012. See it for the third (fourth or fifth) time:

The Last of Us was first glimpsed during the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards, and has since been outed as a post-apocalyptic, action-adventure survival game starring Joel, a do-whatever-it-takes survivor; and Ellie, his 14-year-old ward. Read our impressions of Naughty Dog's Uncharted-meets-Fallout title in The Last of Us preview - survival gets real.

    I love all the game features Jimmy has on his show.

    would love to see this game done right on the PC.

    The game will be done right on PS3...and there's plenty more awesome gaming experiences coming that won't happen on PC. You elitst PC titheads are really sad. They won't make it for PC because it won't sell...because most people are smart enough to game on consoles....and games don't sell on PC unless they're called Diablo 3. Have fun missing out on all the important games. Idiot.

    I liked the ellen page version of ellie better but still can't wait for this game, to bad we have to.

    exactly the same as seen at the E3, seems like a purely scripted demo unfortunately

    Yay!!! Last of us, last of us, last of us, last of us!

    Please not March, that's all I ask.

    Probablly in the fall lineup

    If the rumors are true that the PS4 is coming out in the fall, I highly doubt Sony would release it then. It'll either be in March, or in the summer. Plus if they release it in the fall, they run the risk of clashing with COD

    It's a good thing those rumors aren't true!
