New PSP with modified analog stick announced for Monster Hunter and it hits Japan in January…
Before you get too excited, although a new PSP has been announced for release alongside Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, its only a slightly modified version of the original.
The special edition Monster Hunter styled PSP features a new analog stick that’s slightly modified to include an indent for the thumb, an extended battery pack and it comes in a lovely black and gold.
Besides the Monster Hunter Portable 3rd graphics, the newly refined PSP also ships with a slightly enhanced analog stick and beefier 2200mAh capacity battery. Look for it to ship on January 12th for ¥19,800 (about $232).
This means the battery sticks out slightly in the new model, but hey it still looks rather sweet.
