It’s-a me, Uniqlo: Nintendo announces Uniqlo T-shirt design winners
The Japanese clothing brand has decided on its roster of winning designs.
Last July, Japanese thread-pusher Uniqlo and everyone's favourite video game company announced a competition whereby fans and designers could put forward their ideas on some unique T-shirt designs featuring classic franchises like Mario, Pokémon and Zelda.
Yesterday, the winners of said competition (the UT Grand Prix) were finally announced. In first place, we have a fairly basic 8-bit Mario design from Japanese designer Takashi Kawazoe, in second place, a colourful imagining of a squid from Splatoon by Japanese designer Shino Yamazaki, and in third place, a kids shirt depicting a silhouetted scene from Zelda by Mexican artist David Ricardo Flores Gomez.
Amongst the runner-ups was a fairly eclectic selection from Nintendo's most popular brands, including Pikmin, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Animal Crossing and Star Fox. To see the entire range of designs, head over to Uniqlo's website.
We're reaching out to Uniqlo for more information on pricing and availability in Australia and will update this article as soon as we know more.
