Konami announces that "complete clothing collection" based on popular franchise's portable entry will be available in North America April 11.
Fans of Metal Gear Solid's latest portable entry--Peace Walker--will soon be able to show their affection for the title by wearing clothes from the game.
Konami has announced a men's "complete clothing collection" based on the attire of Peace Walker's characters. The clothing set will include coats, sweatshirts, pants, T-shirts, and hats. Konami also says additional apparel will become available quarterly and around "special events" scattered throughout the year.
The clothing line was created via a partnership between Konami and Musterbrand LLC, a design group whose focus is bringing digital properties out of the screen and into the real world.
According to Konami, the clothing line will become available in the United States and Canada beginning April 11. However, the publisher did not note where the attire will be available. A likely shopping spot, though, would seem to be Konami's online store, KonamiStyle.

great now there going to be people going around with stupid lines like "Hey want to see my Peace walker" ......still I buy like one shirt xD.
I would probably get a shirt, but I got a feeling that the clothing would only be available at that scary looking mall store, Hot Topic. So many malls I have shopped at and I never dare venture into those stores just cause I always see goths and emos haunting them.
I half expected to see negative comments when I read the article, it's cool to see a game series taken... well, so seriously. The fact that MGS can have a clothing line well received by the gaming community is actually worth noting. I wouldn't mind some MGS cargo pants or something myself. =P
@ kavadias1981 HAH Funny story I had a chick walk up to me the other day and complemented my Pacman shirt. Meh I don't get by with my shirts, I get by with my awesome personality =P
@Gooshnads lol I bet you're a hit with the ladies. Im kidding, I'm kidding. I actually wish I had half of your collection of teez.
Oh, so they can sell real life pants but you have to make do with a single pair of virtual pants on MGO?!?!?!?!?
"... based on the attire of Peace Walker's characters" Yes, folks, you heard it. Now we can all look somewhat like Snake. So yeah, anybody up for getting the costumes and walking around together looking all badass? 8)
Sweet, I already have my Zelda crap the girls love now to show off my inner-badass-er-y with Big Boss on my chest!
Finally I will be able to hide in the grass in camouflage to scare my friends! How awesome is that!!
Meh I have my Peace Walker shirts already UNIQLO usually has promotions on these I have my Evangelion, Phoenix Wright, MGS 4, Peace Walker, Pacman, Monster Hunter shirts =P
I hope the clothes have optic camouflage abilities. :P But regardless, this is something you don't hear all the time.
I'll go to school... but, due to my awesome camo.... I'll be misteriously marked as absent everyday I go with MGS clothes....
Metal Gear clothes... don't stop there Konami - give us Zone of Enders, Yugioh, and Castlevania stuff too!
