Yesterday, Bandai Namco teased some big Dark Souls 3 news. That news is clothes.
Specifically, a set of hoodies, T-shirts, and baseball caps are now available. I will grant you, there are some nice designs there (the Venn diagram of Alive/Hollow/Dead is quite good, and if I don’t forget about these within 20 minutes then I might well end up buying something because I am terrible with money) but I doubt this is quite what most people were hoping for when the publisher made their anticipation-baiting Tweet.

I’m also not quite sure what that big news could’ve been if it wasn’t clothing. Um. Did we perhaps think this might be some details on the first bit of DLC? Or maybe they were just really excited about our spoiler-free Dark Souls 3 review, which went up earlier today? Apparently not. Clothes ahead. Visions of clothes. Try clothes. Be wary of clothes.
On the plus side, at least it’s not a hot wings challenge. Clothing lines for popular games might not be what we were hoping for but they aren’t exactly unheard of, while that hot wings thing may go down as one of the weirdest marketing tie-ins of the year.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
