Here’s some hopefully happy news for folks who couldn’t manage to make it out to That Party — the Venus Patrol Shop has just been refreshed & our new Legend of Romantics T-shirt is now shipping worldwide!
The shirt’s the latest in Keita Takahashi & Venus Patrol’s ‘Videogame Romantics’ line & comes in two colorways: MIDNIGHT (above), which features glow in the dark ink that lets the stars & ‘legendary objects’ shine through the evening…
…and ATHLETICS, printed navy on heather-grey — perfect for jogging or whichever calisthenic endeavor you personally prefer.
I should probably slow down a bit with the Big Announcements, but there’s just too much to get through before everything explodes next week, so here’s One More Big One: in addition to the debut of Tenya Wanya Teens, our March 27th GDC party will also see the release of a new T-shirt designed by Katamari Damacy creator Keita Takahashi.
The ‘Videogame Romantics’ shirt, inspired by Takahashi’s speech featured on Venus Patrol a few months back, will be released at the party in the ‘Sunset’ colorway pictured above, in a very limited edition that will be exclusive to that one night.
Following the party, the shirt will be the first item available worldwide on the Venus Patrol Shop — long teased in that top bar, but now actually coming soon in partnership with our superpals at Fangamer — in two new colorways, and probably even more colorways after those sell through, and then, hopefully, branching out into many more new designs after this.
Until then, if you want to fly your fellow Videogame Romantic freak flag in those colors above, I would suggest literally like bee-lining to the Fangamer booth at our party on March 27th as soon as possible, because I honestly don’t think they’re going to last long.
Frequently-featured artist Daniel Bressette’s latest (and awesomely starkest) latest is this kaiju-esque Metroid T-shirt, now available through Fangamer, and described as follows: “Civilizations crumble as the King of the Parasites descends from the skies! Behold the fell majesty, the speechless terror, the black fear from the depths of space: PARASITO.”
