The Last of Us Part II, the highly-awaited action-adventure game developed by the Naughty Dog is making waves these days because of its repeated launch delays. However, fans got another glimpse of it during an airing of a college edition of Jeopardy on April 15th.
The airing showed a category based on “World of Video Games” accompanied by some questions, one of which showcased footage of Naughty Dog’s forthcoming third-person action title, The Last of Us Part II, and asking the players what game it was.
“The long-awaited upcoming sequel to this PlayStation game revisits Ellie and Joel after a cross-country trek filled with zombies,” reads the description of The Last of Us Part II in the question from the host.
A player known as Xiaoke ended up getting $2,000 for correctly answering the question. They also answered another question that requested the identification of Qbert, the 80s arcade game, correctly.
Later on, Naughty Dog even took it to Twitter to share the Jeopardy question and thanked the popular show for mentioning its game in the semi-finals.
Neil Druckmann, the creative director working on The Last of Us Part II, also tweeted about the trivia show question and commented and said that it was cool to see his game on TV in this way, but that the title doesn’t have zombies, as the host’s clue said.
There’s a longer footage of the gaming sections from the episode of Jeopardy, which you can watch right here:
The Last of Us Part II was initially scheduled to be released on February 21st of this year but was then postponed until May 29th, 2020. However, after the pandemic started to install all over the world and numerous events were canceled and launches delayed, the game was also pushed back. There was no release date set as of yet.
