Nintendo Releasing Official Merchandise Through UNIQLO

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Nintendo isn’t a stranger to official merchandise – it easily makes up a good chunk of their profits as fans rabidly consume and hoard everything they release. Now, the company is offering new clothing merch via Japanese outfitter UNIQLO.

The new collaboration will make 25 official Nintendo-branded shirts available, and each shirt will be available in both genders sizes. Pricing is somewhat reasonable, with adult shirts costing $14.90 and Kids’ shirts at $9.90.

Each design was picked out of a global design contest, in which Nintendo’s own Shigeru Miyamoto helped select the winners. Designs include a variety of Nintendo games, including: Mario, Splatoon, Zelda and more.

You can view all the designs at the UNIQLO + Nintendo landing page.

    Nintendo, please just sell me the actual shirt and shoe designs from Splatoon. I want me an anchor tee, a red vector tee and some black seahorses.

    No Rover or Blanca on that AC shirt should have immediately disqualified it.

    Here’s something they should print on Tee Shirts:

  • same. But it’s not like they’d ever do anything that smart.

    Not gonna happen after Miyamoto sucked the soul right of the Paper games, I wouldn’t be surprised if they make special editions that replaces all the original characters with toads, rips out anything that feels removed from the Mario formula or subverts it and makes all their plots about Bowser kidnapping Peach.

    If Nintendo would do that, they’d be taken out of production after a month or so though.

    Hell yeah. 😃
