The Last Guy gets named, dated, and detailed

Downloadable PS3 title set for late July.


Following a mysterious teaser unveiling a couple of weeks back, Sony has at long last shared specifics on its newest PlayStation 3 title, The Last Guy, or as it's now fully known, The Last Guy Japan Premium.

This appears to be the official logo.

In The Last Guy Japan Premium, you play as Last Guy, who's come from the Himalayas to save the people of Asakusa from attacking zombies. Your job is simple: find people remaining in the Asakusa area and lead them to special escape zones.

As suggested in the original teaser trailer from two weeks back, the game makes use of real life aerial photos of the famous Tokyo tourist spot. Judging by the few screenshots Sony handed out today and the new trailer video that was posted at the game's website today, gameplay appears to be viewed from a strictly overhead perspective.

These appear to be actual screenshots.

The Last Guy Japan Premium hits the PlayStation Store on July 31 at 500 yen. The download will take up 314 megabytes on your hard disk.

While Sony hasn't made this official, there are a few strong hints in the new trailer footage suggesting that future installments of The Last Guy will follow, and will take the zombie rescuing to other areas of the world, including The Opera House in Sidney.
