With Monster Hunter: World releasing just over a week from now on January 26th, nobody could have predicted what Sony has just surprised us with: a limited-edition 1TB PlayStation 4 Pro bundle featuring the fire wyvern Rathalos on its casing. This eye-catching console will launch alongside Capcom’s newest entry into the Monster Hunter franchise, and features a matte-black casing emblazoned with the likeness of Rathalos in a deep grey colour.

Red streaks are etched into the console’s surface to give it a fiery look, and various symbols and the game’s logo itself are prominently displayed on the front and top of the console in a shiny gold finish. If this console design alone wasn’t enough to make the console a must-have for any Monster Hunter super-fans, the accompanying Dualshock 4 controller, itself adorned with tendril-like designs and a gold emblem of its own, is simply gorgeous.

In terms of the content of the bundle itself, the box will not only contain the 1TB limited-edition console and its aforementioned customised red Dualshock 4 controller, but also a physical (standard) edition of Monster Hunter: World, and even some voucher codes for an in-game Origin Armour Set, a Fair Wind Charm Talisman, and a Monster Hunter: World dynamic theme to decorate the console’s main menu with.

In the US, the console will be sold exclusively by GameStop and will cost $449.99 USD. Here in the UK, it will be exclusively available at GAME – and only while stocks last, and they are limited. Priced at £379.99 over here, and with such amazing designs as these, these consoles are bound to sell out fast – so if you’re interested, be sure to grab one quickly on launch day, or better yet, pre-order now in-store or online to guarantee one for yourself.
