Tecmo takes merchandising to a new low

Or high... depending on how you look at it.

We love videogame paraphernalia around here - well, you'd expect us to wouldn't you? One little bit of a spin-off merchandise we didn't see coming was, however, DOAX bikinis - we suppose we should have really. "Buy one for a friend, your girlfriend, or just as a collectible, but make sure you pre-order your favourite suit today because these DOAX original swim suits will not be around for long!" it says on the website. We'd like an excuse to get one, but we're not sure a healthy slap from any of our girlfriends is quite worth it... maybe we could squeeze Rob into one. Anyway, should you fancy forking out the healthy $149.99 for a colourful bit of string, pop off over Tecmo's shop website - or you could just look at the nice pictures like we did. Right! Back to work...

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
