Burberry has created two new exclusive skins for the multiplayer online battle arena game Honor of Kings, solidifying itself as a leading fashion luxury label in China. The game has become the most popular game in China and one of the highest-grossing games of all time worldwide.
The skins are this time given to the character named Yao, titled the “Spirt of Nature” and “Spirit of the Forest and Ocean.” The former features a design that nods to the brand’s signature gabardine and House check, while the latter uses one of its looks from the Spring/Summer 2021 collection “In Bloom”: a royal blue trench coat paired with crystal vest.
Yao’s deer will be augmented to complement these two skins, taking on a mirrored form for ‘Spirit of Nature’ and emits blue light through its crystal form for ‘Spirit of Nature and Ocean.’
“I am excited to see how technology has found a way to build and nurture the core human needs of personal and emotional connections. Honor of Kings has created an incredible digital world where we can find a new way to dream with our Burberry community… I am so excited to have designed exclusive skins that will bring Burberry house codes into this immersive universe,” Burberry creative director Ricardo Tisci says in a press release.
Both skins are available now via in-game purchase for all Honor of Kings players in mainland China.
