It's been a long time since we've had Kotaku tees for sale...
But now we have Kotaku-tan. Based on the moe anthropomorphism style of 2chan's OS-tans—or if you prefer, console-style-tans—Kotaku-tan taps into references that are probably familiar to the longtime reader: the friendly Pointer Fish, our unhealthy love of cake, the 'K' logo, the... um... memorable Kotaku color scheme. The long and flowing black hair? Totally a coincidence.
We worked with the talented Jason Chan, perhaps best known to Kotaku readers as the artist responsible for "Zombie Playground" (or maybe for his work on Dragon Age: Origins), to create Kotaku-tan for Meat Bun. Jason worked in some amazing little details, like the little d-pads placed on the white shell armor and K logo boot-wings.
We're super excited with the way she's turned out, thanks in part to a ridiculous 13-screen printing process that made for a beautiful print that's surprisingly soft. Kotaku-tan is available now at Meat Bun in black, asphalt, and natural organic.
