As we move into 2016 another New Year will be taking place, the Chinese Lunar New Year. This year it will be the Year of the Monkey, which Microsoft have celebrated with some new Xbox One designs in celebration.

These designs that can be seen below have been revealed by Xbox who have worked with a group of local artists from Chin, Hong Kong and Taiwan to create these Year of the Monkey Xbox One consoles. Don’t expect these to be available for sale though.

“In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Xbox worked with local artists from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan to help ring in the Year of the Monkey. This collaboration resulted in eight one-of-a-kind themed Xbox One consoles that capture the essence of the Lunar New Year.

From stylistic decaling to a full-on monkey-themed Xbox Ones, the designers truly let their imaginations run wild to create some of the most unique consoles we’ve ever seen. More impressively, the hand-picked local artists conceptualized, designed and fabricated their creations in a short period of only one month.

While you won’t be able to purchase these purely-decorative Xbox One consoles at local retailers, we hope you enjoy checking out the unique designs and the stories behind them. Happy Lunar New Year!”

Be sure to head on over to the site linked above to read about the console designs and the artists who worked on them. I’m sure you’ll admit this is impressive work, though the more technical minded may notice that some of the designs may not work well with the air vents on the top of the Xbox One console.
