Fnatic has just dropped their Hello Kitty merch on their official online store.
The esports organization had teased fans with the surprising collaboration at the beginning of November. But aside from some exclusive wallpapers, fans were left in the dark as to exactly what the partnership would entail or what would even happen at the end of the promoted countdown.
Now it appears that the countdown was for Hello Kitty-themed attire and equipment, described as "Hello Kitty goes esports."
On Twitter, Fnatic informed fans that this was one of three drops, titled "BLACK."
"Keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for drops 2, 3, and some super-secret flash drops," they tweeted.
The BLACK collection includes a black hoodie depicting Hello Kitty playing games from a Fnatic gaming chair. She sports a bow on her headset. The $112 hoodie features a giant red bow, like the one on Hello Kitty's head, on the left sleeve. The back has the words "Fnatic" with yet another bow over "Hello Kitty," which looks to be the collection's official artwork.
That same artwork can be found on the bottom of a pair of black sweatpants. Listed for $69.99, the joggers feature Hello Kitty looking tough with folded arms and Fnatic clothing on the left leg. Another key item in the collection is the grey and pink jersey. Hello Kitty, sporting headphones, appears on the right, while Fnatic's symbol is placed on the left. A big Hello Kitty head is on the back of the striped $74.99 jersey.
The Hello Kitty collection also includes two mousepads, one of which stands out with orange tiger stripes, two caps, tee-shirts, and stickers. For gamers on a budget, the $5 sticker sheet includes an adorable winking Hello Kitty showing off her PC set up.
All of the merchandise selections are described as "limited edition items."
Fnatic fans will have to wait and see if the organization's Dota 2 team will sport the new jerseys in the MDL Chengdu Major tomorrow. Their first match will be against Alliance, starting at 6 PM PST.
