There’s a Dying Stranding-themed jacket that’s priced at an eye-watering €1,752, equal to roughly $1,900 or £1,500 (through Eurogamer).
If cash’s no object, then I’ve unlucky information to interrupt—the jacket is bought out in the intervening time. The piece is a collaboration between Kojima Productions and German techwear retailer Acronym, and was supposed as a singular raincoat for Hideo Kojima, however then obtained a restricted launch by way of the corporate. Designed by Errolson Hugh, who starred within the recreation, the jacket is a “variant of the J1A-GT jacket they already promote, however with some Dying Stranding colors and particulars.” It’s additionally Timefall proof.
I’m simply going to say it: I’d put on it. It isn’t ostentatious, and the Dying Stranding particulars are subdued and built-in into the Acronym branding. There’s additionally an enormous yellow pocket on the entrance to carry your child. Simply kidding, that’s a gravity pocket. It retains your belongings secure and dry from climate circumstances or the environment.
The attract and thriller of Dying Stranding started to evaporate when the sport launched late final 12 months, and divided gamers. Some thought the cinematic, introspective treks throughout a ruined nation confirmed the medium what could possibly be potential. Some weren’t thrilled with the prospect of strolling forwards and backwards buoyed by a story that was all over. Kojima instructed that “stronger criticism” got here from American audiences, though American media rated it larger than European and Australian media.
Dying Stranding is out now for PlayStation 4, and can arrive on PC by way of Steam and the Epic Video games Retailer on June 2.
