As part of the industry-wide April Foolsgags this year, Konami releasedfootageof Snake in an Altair (from Assassin's Creed) costume. We chortled, but it turns out that it wasn't a joke.
Kotaku'sreporting that Konami has confirmed at a Metal Gear even in Japan today that the comical costume will in fact be a hidden unlockable in the final game.
After fulfilling the as yet unknown criteria, Snake will be able to don the white rugs of the Assassins Creed lead character, only without the horse riding, or cowering in piles of hay.
