Fan-Designed Nintendo T-Shirts Picked By Miyamoto Now On Sale

Japanese clothing retailer Uniqlo’s line of Nintendo-inspired t-shirts is now on sale.

The new collection, which features shirts based on Pokemon, Animal Crossing, and a host of other Nintendo properties, is the result of Uniqlo’s most recent T-Shirt Grand Prix. The annual contest asks fans to submit designs based on a particular theme; the winning designs would then be produced and sold at Uniqlo stores. Nintendo was the theme of this Grand Prix, and all of the winners were chosen by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto. More than 16,000 submissions were entered in the contest, from which only 25 designs were selected. You can see the full gallery of winners here.

The first-place design, featuring a giant pixelated rendition of Nintendo’s iconic plumber Mario, was submitted by Takashi Kawazoe, who won $10,000 and a Nintendo Switch autographed by Miyamoto. Shino Yamazaki took home $3,000 and an autographed Switch as well for his second-place design, an Inkling squid formed out of paintball splatters, while the third place Legend of Zelda-inspired shirt won its designer, David Ricardo Flores Gomez, $500.

Fans can purchase the t-shirts in stores and on the Uniqlo website. Men’s and women’s shirts retail for $14.90, while kids’ shirts run for $9.90 each.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
