The sequel won't be available there though.
Video game themed products are always cool to have. Recently, we witnessed several brands jumping on a number of major game franchises. Levi's Mario-themed clothing line and League of Legends' Louis-Vuitton collection are prime examples of how video games can get into our daily lives. What if I told you there are credit cards with The Last of Us Remastered artwork all over them?
Recently, the Bank of Communications and PlayStation China collaborated to design The Last of Us Remastered credit cards. There are two designs for people applying for new cards to choose from, either the renowned Fireflies logo or the original title's Joel and Ellie artwork. Both of them look aesthetically pleasing, and a joy to take out of your pocket.

It is worth noting that China probably will never get The Last of Us neither its upcoming sequel due to the country's strict regulation laws. There are certain elements, themes of violence, and other reasons why the country won't let Naughty Dog's title onto its soil officially. Many players will still experience it though, via the grey market ordering it internationally or from Hong Kong, and the card could be useful for that.
This isn't the first time Sony and the Bank of Communications partner together to design cards based on the studio's IP and PlayStation theme. At the time, players were able to get discounts and bonuses for using the card on purchases from the PlayStation Store.
