Halo Reach Bundle Announced for Japan

Microsoft shares plans for limited edition bundle and special accessories.


Japan may account for a tiny fraction of Halo's sales, but Microsoft is still giving fans here the full experience for the upcoming Halo: Reach. Coinciding with announcements made overseas, Microsoft Japan announced the Halo Reach Limited Edition for Japan this past week.

The Halo Reach Limited Ediiton bundle includes a special Xbox 360 slim, colored silver and with special Halo Reach markings on both the system and the two included wireless controllers. Also included in the special box is a standard headset, a retail copy of Halo Reach, and all required cables.

The bundle will be priced ¥39,800. This is a savings of about ¥3,000 over buying everything separately.

As detailed earlier this month, Reach will also be available in standard form for ¥7,140, as a Limited Edition costing ¥8,610, and as a Legendary Edition running ¥16,590. The content of the Limited and Legendary editions mirrors their overseas counterparts.
