What better way to express your loyalty and appreciation than by wearing examples of iconic gaming?
Today, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. has announced a new branded clothing line for men based on Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker for the PSP, which released last year to rave reviews. As the press release says- "This will be the first complete clothing collection for the franchise, allowing fans to show their METAL GEAR SOLID love by dressing the part from head to toe." The parternship is with Musterbrand; you may recall their participation in giving us the slick Gran Turismo Boutique . Said Careen Yapp, Vice President of Acquisitions and Franchise Development of Konami Digital Entertainment:
"Our partnership will give fans the opportunity to 'suit up' for one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, specifically for METAL GEAR SOLID: PEACE WALKER. The mass success and support for our latest METAL GEAR SOLID hit has allowed us to expand beyond what we've done in the past with the series, and we are very much looking forward to offering this new line to a global community of fans."
The apparel will be available for purchase as of next week – April 11 – and the collection will feature coats, sweatshirts, pants, t-shirts and hats, "all inspired by clothing worn by characters in the game." More items will be released quarterly "and surrounding certain special events throughout the year." So if GT isn't your thing, perhaps MGS is…which means you should soon make some additions to your wardrobe.
