Following the well known sentiment that no home is complete without vampires and combat boots, Konami has made it's presence felt Playstation Home with items from Castlevania and Contra. While I've always been fond of the side scrolling shooters and continually good quality of the Castlevania games, I still don't see anything here worth using Playstation Home for.
KONAMI FINALLY MAKES IT HOME,
JOINS PUBLISHERS ON PLAYSTATION® HOME
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Contra are the First Franchises to Provide Virtual Items now Available on PlayStation Home
KONAMI announced today that new virtual items are now available for purchase in PlayStation® Home. While KONAMI has plans to distribute plenty of famed franchise content for PlayStation Home in the future, the first two franchises to join the party are Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and Contra.
The items that are now available for purchase for Castlevania: Lords of Shadow are Gabriel Belmont's Brotherhood of Light Armor, Cyclone Boots, Combat Cross, and Dark Gauntlet just in time for fans to get their avatars to look just like Gabriel as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow gets set to launch next week.
For Contra, fans of the run-and-gun side-scrolling games can purchase some of the fabled series' most iconic items, including the blue and red bandanas that Lance Bean and Bill Rizer don, as well as the famed cargo camo pants and combat boots. Players can also complete the authentic Contra look and go with a shirtless physique option or the signature white tank and gun option as they prepare to punish alien scum.
Additionally, KONAMI will be producing living environments for purchase in the coming months giving players the ability to deck out their personal spaces with various KONAMI themed items to bring some of their favorite franchises into their virtual homes.
