We posted recently that Kalahari Games had tweeted about the possibility of Rock Band Beatles making its way to our shores. Today we’re happy to tell you that it’s no longer a possibility – it’s confirmed!
Once again, thanks to Kalahari Games we have news that EA South Africa will be bringing in Rock Band Beatles – both standalone and bundled. Furthermore, they’ll be bringing in Rock Band 2 – meaning we’ll finally have the superior, Harmonix-developed rhythm game available locally. They’ve also given recommended retail pricing, details of which can be found after the jump.
The standalone versions of both Rock Band Beatles and Rock Band 2 both have a tentative RRP of R599.
The real kicker of this whole shebang though is the RRP of the limited edition bundle, which includes plastic recreations of the Beatle’s instruments, including Paul McCartney’s signature Hofner Bass. The bundle will also include the software, a microphone and accompanying mic stand, and a Ludwig-branded Rock Band 2 drums, complete with a classic pearl finish and vintage replica Beatles kick drum head. The price for such awesomness? A paltry R2499.
As awesome as that price is, I’m not going to get my hopes set on it staying that way – if you’ll recall, the local RRP of Guitar Hero World Tour before its local release was almost half of what it sold for when it finally hit retail.
