Blade & Soul’s Chinese server dropped a new patch recently… Aside from adding the 9th class — Soul Fighter, and some additional content; the thing that’s really catching everyone’s eye is a specially themed costume for everyone’s favorite February holiday.

As MMOSite reports, a special Valentine’s Day themed costume has been made available…to some characters, specifically the female ones. The costume consists of a long dress shirt — and sometimes tie — that I can only assume are meant to be swiped out of the girls’ boyfriends’ closets. They — kinda — cover everything that someone might find questionable. So, at least there’s that.


I have some doubts as to whether or not these will make it into the western version of the free-to-play game, although stranger things have happened. If they do, I have only one question: where are the guy’s costumes? I mean… Can’t they at least get a little red speedo, or maybe some boxer shorts with hearts or cupid on them or something? I mean… The guys should have something to wear on the most romantic day of the year too…. RIGHT?

    I feel like something pretty important was swept aside for journalism on something fairly mundane.

    The funny thing is that the Chinese version is supposed to be the censored version.
