The God of War ‘Kratos’ and Ape Escape ‘Pipo Monkey’ costumes have recently popped up on the PlayStation Asia Store, listed as being available from January 8th.
However, we’re not quite sure why these costumes have popped up on the store. Their descriptions seem to imply that they are only available to a select group of people. The Pipo monkey costume is one of the prizes available in the PlayStation Asia Design a Sackboy competition, however the final winners are not announced until February 15th.
The descriptions are as follows:
Congratulations! It looks like you managed to get your hands on the exclusive LittleBigPlanet™ Kratos costume. Download it now and feel the power!
Congratulations! It looks like you managed to get your hands on the exclusive LittleBigPlanet™ Pipo Monkey costume. Download it now and see how really cute it is!
Considering that the Kratos costume has been available in the E.U and U.S for some time now (through special promotion codes) - we’re guessing that the Pipo Monkey costume might well become available via a similar means. That is, if Sony wish to keep him ‘special’ in that way. We think Pipo looks very cute:
Incidentally, you can vote for the winners of the PlayStation Asia Costume Competition over on the website.
[UPDATE - January 16th]
The dates on the site have now been changed from January 8th to January 26th.
