Monster Hunter: World “Starter” PS4 Bundles and Rathalos Edition DualShock 4 Releasing in Japan

In addition to the custom Monster Hunter: World PlayStation 4 Pro that was announced last September, Japanese players will be able to get their hands on two themed “starter” PS4 bundles, Capcom announced during a recent livestream event.

Coinciding with the game’s launch are the 500GB bundles that include either a black or a white console, and a copy of the game for 35,980 yen. In addition to this, the controller (pictured above) that comes with the Rathalos Edition PS4 Pro will be sold separately for 6,480 yen.

At present, there’s no news of a Western release.

Last but not least, there’ll be a third beta test session from January 19 to 22 that’ll have players hunting Nergigante.

Monster Hunter: World releases worldwide on January 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. A PC version will release this fall.
