KSC finally revealed their Persona 5 collaborative project — a beautiful airsoft pistol in the same style as Joker’s trademark gun.
Last month KSC Corporation revealed on their official blog that they would be doing an interesting collaboration with Sega and Atlus’s Persona 5 — an airsoft gun modeled after the one protagonist Joker uses in the game. The company finally released the special edition gun model for preorder and it’s even more lovely than I could possibly have imagined:
The left side of the gun has “The Phantom,” “Trickster,” and the Phantom Thief logo engraved on it. The right side features the motto “Take Your Heart” engraved in a stunning red font design. This is all topped off with the beautiful silver color and metallic finish of the gun itself, making it look even classier. It costs 24,000 yen (about $240).
The pistol is a TT33 model gas-type blowback, which is said to be the favorite pistol model of the protagonist. Joker certainly has good taste, as many pistol collectors in the West favor it as well due to its rugged looks and reliability.
You can check out the preorder page here to get a better look at the gun but beware that this particular product has already sold out. I guess Japanese fans are just passionate about Persona 5 as we are, including its merchandise.
This is hardly the first time fans came together for some very creative endeavors, including beautiful Phantom Thief-themed poker chips, lovely fanart depicting a crossover of sorts between the Persona 5 ladies and Catherine, and some wonderful cosplay of both Futaba and Makoto. We also have some excellent Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse x Persona 5 crossover fanart, an amazing take on a GBA-styled version of the JRPG, and even an elaborate board game that fans can print out and play themselves.
Those at DualShockers love Persona 5 as much as its very talented and devoted fanbase, judging by our glowing review of the title back in 2017. If you haven’t gotten around to playing yet, you can purchase Persona 5 here.
Recently new information has been revealed concerning a possible new version of the title called Persona 5 The Royal on March 23rd in a teaser trailer. The trailer debuted at the end of the anime’s final episode “Stars and Ours,” which was livestreamed on Japanese television, and featured a mysterious young woman who was critical of the Phantom Thieves and their methods.
