SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 14, 2013 – ASTRO Gaming, a division of Skullcandy, Inc. (Nasdaq: SKUL), and creators of premium video gaming equipment for professional gamers, has announced that the studio is supporting the upcoming launch of Konami’s Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance™ on February 19, 2013 with four sets of exclusively designed speakers tags for its award-winning ASTRO A30 and A40 Audio Systems. Developed with direct input from Konami and Kojima Productions, the ASTRO Gaming Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance speaker tags will feature artwork taken directly from the game to ensure a stylish, authentic and iconic representation of the latest entry in the Metal Gear universe.

Developed by Kojima Productions and Platinum Games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will deliver fresh and synergetic gameplay that combines the best and most frenetic elements of action gaming with truly epic storytelling. Taking place in 2018, four years after the events in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance introduces Raiden, a child soldier transformed into a cyborg ninja killing machine, equipped with a high-frequency katana blade and a soul fueled by revenge.

“Few gaming franchises have endured with such style and consistency while still managing to continually deliver innovative gameplay and engaging storylines as what we’ve come to expect from Metal Gear. A true testament to both Konami and Kojima’s commitment to relentlessly raising the bar,” said Brett Lovelady, Founder of ASTRO Gaming. “In much the same way, our goal at ASTRO Gaming is to continually challenge what gamers expect from a modern gaming headset. Whether it’s our mobile-fluent and street-savvy ASTRO A30 or our professional grade, audiophile quality ASTRO A40, our headsets and speaker tags deliver unsurpassed audio fidelity, vocal clarity and customizable style.”

ASTRO Gaming speaker tags provide customers with an opportunity to truly personalize their listening experience with magnetically interchangeable custom-made art designed specifically for the studio’s award-winning A30 and A40 headsets. ASTRO Gaming headset owners can create their own speaker tags using the ASTRO Customizer or choose from dozens of pre-existing and highly stylish tags, including several eye-catching series by Upper Playground, iam8bit, Penny Arcade and more.
