Konami fans in the U.S. and Canada will be able to buy a variety of products inspired by all three properties from Bioworld Merchandising, including clothing, sleepwear, and accessories. Collector Cup will release a line of shaker cups for all three games, while Stubbins will offer plush toys and Pixel Frames decor based on Contra characters. Internationally, Netherlands-based Difuzed, will offer lifestyle products inspired by the games in Europe, the Middle East, and South Africa.
“Gaming is a lifestyle that is expanding beyond consoles and PCs,” says Jennifer Coleman, vice president of licensing and merchandising at Konami Cross Media NY. “Fan engagement is at an all-time high and there’s a big demand for the latest official lifestyle collections and authentic accessories of a fan’s favorite characters.”
