When developers expand their franchises into more tangible products, many revolve around the idea of toys and memorabilia, but 343 is taking Halo in a different approach to make an prosthetic arm themed after John 117. The studio has revealed their partnership with Limbitless to bring the dream of becoming Master Chief closer to reality.
Limbitless is well-known for crafting customized appendages varying from sports teams to super heroes like Iron Man and Super Man. The new collaboration will bring two different variants for those interested to choose: Master Chief’s Mark IV with complementing color scheme or a “multiplayer” option which holds a palette of different colors to choose from when customizing your Spartan prosthetic.
This isn’t the first time videogames have delved into making fans with disabilities feel more like their favorite protagonists. Previously Square Enix announced a partnership with Open Bionics to bring prosthetic arms inspired from Deus Ex to life.
