Do you remember that night when it was 2 a.m. and you still couldn’t fall asleep, and it was because you just couldn’t bear the thought of living another day without an officially sold Castlevania: Symphony of the Night pillow? Well, those tortured nights of tossing and turning are finally over, because the Official Konami Shop is now live (in beta, apparently). To commemorate the occasion, through Feb. 25 the Official Konami Shop is offering a Grand Opening Sale of 20% off selected merchandise, including for brands like Castlevania, Metal Gear Solid, and Suikoden. A lot of the merchandise feels overpriced in the first place, so 20% off brings the prices (almost) back into the realm of reason.
Still, the Official Konami Shop has some really nice stuff, including T-shirts, hoodies, hats, beanies, Castlevania pillows(!), mugs, and water bottles. And in addition to the aforementioned franchises, the shop also includes merchandise for Konami properties like Pro Evolution Soccer, Dance Dance Revolution, Sunset Riders, Track & Field, and Goemon. A notable absence is Silent Hill, perhaps because Konami isn’t prepared to sell a T-shirt designed to horrify friends, family, and acquaintances just yet. Give it some time though.
Is there anything at the Official Konami Shop that catches your eye? Perhaps a Castlevania: Symphony of the Night pillow?
