Folks in Japan can order the chocolate edition of Aibo.


Sony's robotic dog Aibo is getting a makeover in Japan. 

The company is offering a limited-edition "chocolate" Aibo, according to a translated press release

Aibo's new look includes dark brown ears, a lighter brown face and white legs. Sony did not immediately respond to a request for comment as to whether a multicolored Aibo will be available in the US. 

The robo dog is a refresh of a version Sony sold from 1999 to 2006. The new Aibo started shipping in the US in December 2018 with a price tag of $2,990.

Preorders start Wednesday in Japan.
