The Microsoft Surface Pro has been slowly and steadily expanding to markets outside of the U.S. with the tablet finally making its way to Japan today, but in a version that has yet to be seen.

Microsoft Japan unveiled a new 256GB version of the Surface Pro, which will be made available for retail on June 7, and will mark the first country to receive a tablet with additional storage as the maximum amount of hard drive space made available was the 128GB version. Additional memory isn’t the only improvement to the Surface Pro being introduced in Japan as Microsoft is also making a number of limited-edition Surface covers available as well. The new covers were designed in collaboration with Japanese fashion brands Beams and Baroque Jeans, while two additional covers were designed for the upcoming Ghost in the Shell: Arise anime film.

When it’s made available on June 7, the 256GB version of the Surface Pro will retail for 119,800 yen ($1,182) while the standard 128GB version will retail for 99,800 yen ($985).
