A new shop has provided an updated release date for the upcoming software product, "The Last of Us: Remastered." According to a report from Gear Nuke on May 30, an international retailer listed that the next-gen port should be arriving on Aug. 12. The unspecific region usually share the same release date as the North American territory.

So far, Sony Computer Entertainment has only announced a summer release period for "The Last of Us: Remastered." However, a representative did deny reports of a potential delay after some retailers pushed the date to Dec. 31 of this year. The individual confirmed that it is simply a placeholder.

The development for the PS4 port is apparently going smoothly at Naughty Dog as a lot of the new assets were already pre-made for the PS3 game. One of the potential problems is disc space as the product is apparently filling up the 50 GB Blu-ray. The development team decided to render the cut scenes at 1080p in addition to including all three DLC packs in the same package. Doing so may have push the amount of space to the limit, however.

Along with the improved cut scenes, Naughty Dog is also enhancing the in-game models for both the main characters as well as the enemies. The other changes include better lighting and some gameplay tweaks.

"The Last of Us: Remastered" is launching with a full price tag of $59.99. Naughty Dog did promise fans that some kind of upgrade plan is being put together so that existing owners of the PS3 game do not have to buy the same software product to play on the PS4. With the original version selling over six million copies, the port should be one of the most popular titles for Sony's new console.
