Japanese streetwear brand Kodama Apparel has landed a unique collaboration with PlayStation to enhance and celebrate the highly-anticipated release of the upcoming action-packed game ‘Rise of the Rōnin!’

The collab between Kodama Apparel and PlayStation sees authentic kimono jackets drawing inspiration from ‘Rise of the Rōnin.’ These distinctive jackets were made by hand exclusively for selected Australian game influencers in time for the game’s release. They feature intricate embroidery of the main character of ‘Rise of the Rōnin‘ on the back, and a small PlayStation logo embroidered in red on the front.
If you want to get your hands on your very own genuine kimono jacket, there are similar styles available online. It will have you feeling like a real Japanese warrior, as you get ready to shape the fate of Japan.


Kodama Apparel offers a range of unisex styles fusing contemporary fashion with Japanese culture. You’ll most definitely stand out in the crowd with its unique pieces! The creator, Natsuko Kondo, is also dedicated to a zero-waste philosophy. It’s no surprise then, that the name of her brand ‘kodama’ comes from the word for ‘tree spirits’ in Japanese folklore. She uses only high-quality, organic, sustainable materials. It’s also worth noting that the environmentally-friendly, Australian brand proudly designs and makes their pieces in Melbourne.



PlayStation‘s ‘Rise of the Rōnin‘ centres around Japan in 1863. The Bakumatsu era was a time of war, disease and political unrest. Amidst the chaos, you will face critical decisions – all with far-reaching consequences. Will you assassinate, or protect, prominent figures? Who will you ally with? As a ronin, a masterless warrior, your destiny is your own. Every choice you make will shape your dynamic story in different ways. Immerse yourself in deeply engaging combat, with layers of complexity suitable for any playstyle. Face your foes with a selection of close-quarter weaponry or attack from afar with authentic period firearms.

Get your hands on Kodama Apparel‘s authentic kimono jackets, available exclusively online. Rise of the Rōnin is now available at The Gamesmen, JB Hi-Fi, EB Games and at your local retailers. Also available online on the PlayStation website.
