These Uniqlo x Nintendo T-shirts collaboration is the gaming fashion that we need

By Kin Boon on May 2, 2017

Hardcore gamers are growing in numbers over the years, and most of us are passionate to the point we want to show it to the world, and what better way to do so than displaying it on our choice of outfits? Video game fashion was mostly done by huge retail companies, but for those who prefer custom designs, they’ll have to rely on third-party printers which might not be as cost effective. Fret not, as Uniqlo has released a new video game clothing line in partnership with Nintendo.

The designs were chosen from 16,000 entries as part of the UGTP ’17 T-shirt design content held by the Japanese fashion retailer. They narrowed the selections down to 25 T-shirts, which were based on 10 franchises in Nintendo, and it’ll be on sale across Japan’s Uniqlo outlets later this month. The top 3 winners are Mario, Splatoon, and The Legend of Zelda respectively, and here are our favorite designs out of the 25.

The T-shirts are priced at 1,500 yen ($13.50) each for men’s and women’s sizes, while the kids’ variant costs 990 yen ($9.00) with size availability varies by design. You can get them at Uniqlo branches across Japan from May 19 onward, so maybe now is a good time to plan for a summer vacation at the Land of the Rising Sun. At the meantime, you can check out the rest of the designs on Uniqlo's official site
