MSI is teasing a collaboration with legendary mecha IP Neon Genesis Evangelion just hours before their launch event at CES 2022. This could be part of their announcements for new products but its still unclear if the announcement is for an entire PC or branded- components. Many will remember that ASUS has had very good results with their Gundam-themed products and MSI may want that same mecha vibes.
MSI has already collaborated previously with a Japanese IP, namely Toho with their MSI x Godzilla graphics card but it seems this project has also been in the works for a while. In February 2021, Norwegian designer Øyvind Engevik updated his Behance port folio with concept art for MSI for their EVA MAG 27 monitor concept.
This looks to have evolved further and has now resulted in a gaming PC collaboration. MSI’s teaser is very secretive and doesn’t reveal a lot but shots of the products shown on their teaser suggests we’re getting unit 01 (EVA-01) themed product with the case featuring distinct design elements like the familiar colorway and logos.
The full teaser is below. We’ll monitor this teaser for further updates.
