Konami wants to get in on that Fall Guys thing.
Fall Guys, currently the game all brands want to associate with, has garnered a bit of interest from Konami. The Metal Gear publisher recently showed off its interpretation of Solid Snake as a Fall Guys character.
On Twitter, Konami revealed three chubby, thumb-shaped recreations of the iconic character. Fall Guys makes it easy to customise characters with outfits, and these Metal Gear Solid-inspired skins could work about as well as all the other tie-ins.

The idea isn’t outlandish, of course, as Fall Guys already has costumes themed after Hotline Miami (another Devolver-published game), and Half-Life’s Gordon Freeman.
Fall Guys has been selling really well, dominating the charts on Steam and Twitch. This is why those attempts at brand synergy exist, even if they do seem a little desperate.
If you’ve been fumbling your way through Fall Guys yourself, see if you agree with the changes we want to see in Season 2.
