If you’re a big shoot ’em up fan, you’ll undoubtedly want to mark such a momentous occasion in the genre’s history appropriately and luckily, high quality Japanese fashion brand GAMES GLORIOUS have you covered with their limited edition Vic Viper pilot jacket!
The jacket, which is handmade and an officially licensed Konami product, stylishly sports four different Gradius-themed emblems. It’s perfect for informing anyone staring at your back that you that you enjoy a good ‘Trans Dimensional Space Fighter’! The front is proudly emblazoned with the number ’85’, representing the original game’s release year of 1985.
