Monster Hunter World’s expansion Iceborne is getting a physical release in the west as the “Master Edition” combining base game and expansion, but we aren’t getting a collector’s edition.
On the other hand, Japanese fans have quite a few more physical options available, including multiple Collector’s Editions, depending on how much they’re willing to pay for some shiny goodies.
The most pricey option is the Master Edition Collector’s Package + Palico Stand. It costs 22,129 yen including taxes, which translates to just north of $200.
It comes with the whole range of goodies including the game and the expansion, a download code for the deluxe bonus package, a figure portraying the cover monster Velkhana, a Monster Designs artbook, a soundtrack CD, a metal plate, and a special palico figure that can be used as a stand for your DualShock 4.
Those who will buy it at Capcom’s own online store will also get a bonus keychain. You can see all the items below.
On the other hand, if you want just the palico figure (because he’s super cute), he’s also available separately for 4,860 yen, which translates into a much more affordable $44.
Do keep in mind that the image above portrays simply an unpainted prototype. The actual product will be painted in accordance with the illustration in the gallery, and a final picture will be released at a later time.
Incidentally, the little dude is made in the usual mix of PVC and ABS, and he’s 15 cm tall.
Monster Hunter: World Iceborne will be released for PS4 and Xbox One on September 6.
The Steam version will be released in the winter, so the gap won’t be as long as it has been for the main game.
