Metal Gear Solid 25th Anniversary Uniqlo T-Shirt Launch and Signing (with Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa)
Today saw the launch of Uniqlo’s 25th Anniversary Metal Gear Solid t-shirt range. To celebrate the occasion, their flagship store on Oxford Street, London hosted a signing for Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima and lead artist Yoji Shinkawa.
The event itself was a profoundly well run affair, with people queuing up from very early morning until beyond the start of the signing at 09:00. Everyone who showed up was allowed either an item signed, or one of the postcards provided, by both Hideo and Yoji.
A small band of cosplayers attended and solid amount of streetpass hits completed the event.
Uniqlo’s limited run of Metal Gear 25th Anniversary T-shirts come in eleven designs, three of which come in two colours, giving fans a total of fourteen to choose from. The t-shirts can be found in stores or online for £14.90 each.
Hideo and Yoji vowed to be back in the UK in September.
