A Special PS Vita Covered in Metal Slime

Remember the Metal Slime-covered PS4 console that Sony released in Japan last December? This is pretty much the same thing, but it’s a Vita.

Much like how the PS4 console launched with Dragon Quest Heroes, the Metal Slime Vita will be bundled with the Minecraft-ish Dragon Quest Builders. It comes with a pre-installed custom theme, and there is also an actual Metal Slime—the PS4 got one in the form of an USB cover, and here, it’s a headphone jack cover:

The game itself comes in a neat little chest:

Also, there’s another slime hiding in the D-pad. Aw.

The Dragon Quest Metal Slime Edition PS Vita will be out in Japan on the same day as Dragon Quest Builders, on January 28. It’ll cost ¥25,980, or roughly $210, plus tax. No word on whether it’ll make it overseas (its PS4 cousin didn’t—at least not yet).

What were the benefits of the second Vita model? I’ve never held one in my hand, but the photos I’ve seen look pretty bad compared to the original. It’s nice that they have colors, but the black rectangle around the screen looks terrible, it looks like a cheap android tables with controller addon, and the whole thing kinda looks cheap-ish to me. I’m gonig only by photos and videos, so if anyone ever held one in their hands, maybe you can tell me how it feels/plays.
