Popular Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo is bringing their range of Nintendo-themed tees to Australian shores this week. The designs are pulled from the UTGP2017 global t-shirt design competition, were handpicked by Nintendo and video game royalty Shigeru Miyamoto and now you can get them if you want them.
The shirts themselves (some of which we’ve sprinkled throughout this piece) feature designs based on Nintendo’s most popular franchises Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, and Donkey Kong but we’re pleased to see Metroid, Animal Crossing, Splatoon, and StarFox getting a look in as well.
Brisbanites are the first to get their hands on the shirts with Uniqlo Chermside putting them on sale today, Thursday October 5. The rest of the east coast — Brisbane’s Queen St store, the MidCity Sydney store, and Melbourne’s Emporium and Chadstone locations — will have the range available tomorrow, Friday October 6.
Rock up early friends, and take your Switch — we’re tipping there’s gonna be lines.
