Your eyes do not deceive you as yes the title does read correctly, Bandai Namco are out for blood…TwitchCon goers specifically. Promoting the launch of the their modern vampire title Code Vein, they’re encouraging Twitchcon goers to donate they’re blood, in exchange for a copy of Code Vein and a “promo blood kit”. The blood drive will be held on September 27th the release date for Code Vein, running from 10 a.m. to 4.p.m. in San Diego’s Gaslamp Square.
The Lost aren’t the only ones who need your blood! On September 27th, celebrate the #CODEVEIN launch by donating blood to those in need.

Namco have instructed those who are willing donate to register on the American Red Cross website to pre-register, but at this time of releasing this article there are no more appointments left.
While you could say it worked since there are no remaining appointments, the whole thing sounds rather strange. But it’s for a good cause as according to the American Red Cross “every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood” and this will go towards those who really need it.
While you may not be selling your left kidney, it’s now possible to trade your blood for a copy of Code Vein. What do you think of this news? Would you be willing to donate a pint for a game and a cause? Let us know in the comments below.
Code Vein will be released on September 27th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
