Assassin’s Creed gets official clothing line

Official apparel collection includes cardigans, coats, long-sleeve tshirts; available only in Europe, Asia, and Australia.


Next week, gamers can not only pick up Assassin's Creed III at retail, but they can also dress themselves in clothing based on the franchise. Musterbrand has launched an official Assassin's Creed clothing line, which offers various cardigans, coats, and long- and short-sleeve shirts.

The most expensive offering is the "AC DNA Coat" (at right), which sells for £162, or about $260. Other items included in the virtual marketplace include a "Kingdom Knit Jacket" and an "Ottoman Long Cardigan."

This is not the first time a game franchise has been used to sell clothing. Earlier this year, Square Enix teamed with men's fashion magazine Arena Homme+ for a promotion that saw Final Fantasy characters Lightning, Noel, Snow, Sazh, and Hope modeling Prada attire.

Musterbrand also sells clothing based on the Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Hitman, and Metal Gear Solid franchises.

Assassin's Creed III is due out October 30 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC release will follow on November 20, with a Wii U version that is "exactly the same" as its console cousins is out as a launch title for the system on November 18.
