Monster Hunter World arrives on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on January 26, with the PC version coming later. Along with the standard release there’ll be a $69.99 digital deluxe edition with extra cosmetic items and a $149.99 physical collector’s edition with art book and statue.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases tomorrow and has a sizable collector’s edition. The package includes a number of goodies, including statues and replicas, but some fans are rethinking the $200 price point after seeing early images of its questionable Infinity Stones.

Most digital download only games don’t get a fancy collector’s edition release. Hyper Light Drifter is not most download only games, and its collectors edition, up for presale tomorrow from iam8bit, is very fancy indeed.
