Ubisoft has given prop makers Atlanta Cutlery and Museum Replicas rights to make weapons, clothing and accessories based on the Assassin's Creed licence.
The agreement has given Atlanta Cutlery and Museum Replicas to make wristblades (aka the "Assassin Extension Knife"), throwing knives, swords, boots, belts, tunics and more, all based on the in-game items that Assassin's Creed Altair wears. For Altair's hangers-on, the Crusader Priest Robe, William of Montferrat Tunic and Lionheart Gambeson are also available.
Price? Not cheap. A full Altair get up with every available prop could easily set you back $US1000.
According to the official announcement, gear based on the original Assassin's Creed is shipping now. Licensed goods for the sequel will hit sometime in Q2 2010.
While we can't see ourselves playing Altair or Ezio dress up any time soon, we greatly look forward to someone being non-mortally wounded by the new Atlanta Cutlery and Museum Replicas, just for the ensuing mainstream media coverage.
