At first, “Clone of the Kingdom” seems like that. But you realize that Dbrand replaced the Triforce with The Eye of Providence, a symbol that is often as famous for its connections to conspiracy theories and the Illuminati as it is for its sinister appearance on the back of a US Dollar. (Actually, the top of the Sheikah is an eye with three pyramids for eyebrows.)
Then, you can notice the runes. What will they read? “Go fuck yourselves, lawyers” was the first thing I decoded; I won’t spoil the other two for you but they have the same line!
Here are the answers to some questions I sent Dbrand CEO Adam Ijaz:
Does the same skin work on both Switch and Switch OLED?
“No, the Console & Dock on Switch and OLED are dimensionally different, and the kits for Switch / OLED are sold as unique SKUs.”
“There is no support for Switch Lite. We are sure that both owners will be very disappointed.”
Are the symbols printed flat, or with a raised texture?
“The JoyCons and front of the Steam Deck are smooth to the touch; all prints are under a protective matte laminate layer. However, the back of all the consoles (Switch, OLED, Steam Deck) has a more subtle textural difference in the alternating shapes of the concentric hexagonal pattern. It is designed to accurately represent the finish behind the actual one ToK Move.”
Care to, um, comment on everyone who can see the eye that made it to the design? :_)
“It’s real money, Sean. What else do you need to know?”
“Nice try, Nintendo.”
Oh, and: if you want some concentric hexagons on your Steam Deck, knock yourself out: you’ll pay the same $50 for the one you see below.
