Bandai Namco launches a Dark Souls clothing line, but...

My heart is breaking.  

Dark Souls publisher Bandai Namco has launched a clothing line promoting From Software's action-RPG series. However, it looks like this:

Prepare to cry.

That's the pattern on a hoodie, but the other clothing in Bandai Namco's line-up is equally ill-befitting of From's fantasy franchise. The "screamo" ska-punk aesthetic clashes wildly with the ethereal aesthetic of Dark Souls. "It's soul farming time"? Who says that? "Back stab"? That's not even part of a witty phrase. And don't even get me started on "keep dying" overlaid atop an Xbox gamepad.

There have been other Dark Souls shirts that better capture the series' feel - or are at least more fashionable. Meat Bun has featured a few unofficial Dark Souls shirts that are pretty stylish, though the only one in its current catalogue portrays Nito.
