Surprise your friends with the Assassin’s Creed 4 hidden blade toy, joystiq.com advises. Roger that. I can imagine plenty of situations where the friends of young men wearing this novelty item would be plenty surprised by [rubber] blades shooting out of their mate’s bracelets. Sorry, gauntlets. But none where they would be well pleased. Which may be the point (so to speak). And besides, I’m probably reading this all wrong. They’d probably go KEWL! Unless they didn’t. Which would be sad on all sorts of levels. Anyway, “McFarlane Toys will produce hidden-blade gauntlets modeled after those seen in Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed series. This faux perforator, shipping this fall through GameStop for $40, is modeled after the signature weapon used by protagonist Edward Kenway in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag.” My advice: keep calm and assassinate Templars.
