Assassin’s Creed Unity is now available for the PS4 and Xbox One, and now you can be like Arno, the main protagonist, by owning the replica Assassin’s Creed Unity Phantom Blade.
The Phantom Blade is crafted and designed by McFarlane Toys. The hidden blade and dart are made of plastic, so you won’t have to worry about accidentally or intentionally assassinating someone (unless you’re really good at killing people using plastic objects). It also comes with a wearable leather-like strap, so you can be an assassin on the go.
The hidden blade can retract by pressing the button at the bottom. Once released, you can push the blade down and lock it in place for another kill.
For the crossbow, you’ll have to first load the dart in. Make sure it’s on the right side and then push it in until it locks. After that, push the button near the wrist to extend the bow to ready your kill. Finally, you push the button above the blade button to unleash the dart.
Owners of the Phantom Blade will be treated with a bonus code to download the French Cavalry Pistol that can be used in Assassin’s Creed Unity.
If you’re a fan of the franchise and love Assassin’s Creed merchandise, then this is definitely recommended.
Assassin’s Creed, running along roof tops like a fiddler and leaping from great heights just to shiv a guy. Assassin’s Creed is one of many games where I’ve taken the game sub consciously into real life. I’ve been waiting at bus stops and looking at the buildings around thinking “I’d run along there and climb that, jump over there and swing down that pole” all the while tracing a route with my eyes. Of course I can’t do those things, firstly because of the legality of prancing about on other people’s roof tops and secondly because I am a man in his late 20’s who is overweight and with a bum knee.
I’ve seen the excellent hoodies/bathrobes/gloves that are available at INSERTCOIN but I also have to say that just because I’m wearing an Assassin’s Creed dressing gown it doesn’t make me Ezio or any other Desmond ancestors.
But then I found something online, something that made me realise a) I could feel like Ezio and b) oh god this is the first clue that police will find to use against me in a murder trial. I talk about Neca’s Ezio Auditore Roleplay Gauntlet.
This little bit of kit is for dress up and not murder. The gauntlet and blade are all made of plastic with a fair amount of attention to detail when it comes to the shading on the engravings to make it looks as close to metal as plastic can.
