Following the announcement for Europe, we learn that the Monster Hunter World-dedicated PS4 Pro “Rathalos Edition” is also coming to North America.
According to the PlayStation Blog, the new console will be available in the United States exclusively at GameStop for $449.99 when the game launches on January 26th. Like the European release (and unlike the Japanese one), it’ll come with a physical copy of the game in the box.
That being said, for those who prefer something a little more subdued, we also get the announcement of the Glacier White version of the PS4 Pro. If you’re in the United States, it’ll be available exclusively at GameStop for $399.99. Canadian brothers will also get it exclusively at EB Games for $499.99 CAD.
No release date was announced for the Glacier White PS4 Pro, but all we got for now is “in the coming weeks.” Unfortunately, there is no information about any availability of the Rathalos Edition in Canada.
Again, no mention was made of the possibility of getting the Monster Hunter World controller on its own.
If you want to see more of what it looks like, you can check out some official pictures, and more images of the real thing that I shot myself at Tokyo Game Show. You can also watch the most recent gameplay from yesterday. Monster Hunter World will also be available for Xbox One on the same day, and for PC this fall.
