These Throwback T-Shirts Featuring Your Favorite 80’s Video Games Are A Wardrobe Must-Have
Gamers, you’re going to love this! A Japanese clothing brand is paying tribute to classic video games from the 80s with their new t-shirts, and they are definitely a must-have for your closet.
The clothing brand Uniqlo has collaborated with Bandai Namco and Taito to develop a unisex t-shirt collection that gamers and others will love. The Game by Namco Museum collection has tees featuring some of your favorite games from the 80s. We’re talking Dig Dug, Galaga, and, of course, Pacman, along with a few others.
The collection launched exclusively this summer on August 31 at Uniqlo Orchard Central and the brand’s website. It was launched in all stores in Fall 2018 and has gotten great feedback so far. From the looks of the shirts, it’s easy to see why.
Sticking To The Original
What’s so great about these shirts is that they stay true to the looks of the original games. Using modern 8-bit pixel art, the apparel takes us back in time to the arcade gaming era, complete with joysticks. Other games like Xevious and Space Invaders are also represented well. The collection also is retailed at $14.90, a pretty affordable price for high-quality work.
The brand was hopeful that the shirts would be well received by fans of all ages, not just those who grew up in the 80s. “Famous scenes and characters are sure to trigger nostalgia among those who grew up in the arcade gaming era and among young consumers for whom retro gaming culture offers fresh and exciting complements to their wardrobes,” Uniqlo shared in a statement.
Uniqlo has stores not only throughout the country but all over the world. Recently, the brand opened up its first global flagship store in the Philippines––Uniqlo Manila. The two-story, 4,100 square meter store offers a variety of apparel from the brand, including Lifewear and UT shirts, as well as The Game by Namco Museum. “To Uniqlo, a shirt is not just a shirt,” a representative shared. There are so many designs to choose from, with new lines focusing on art, culture and different characters.” Those designs are loved worldwide.
A great feature of Uniqlo Manila? The store offers gamers the opportunity to play Jump Force, an unreleased game by Japanese company Bandai Namco Entertainment. This is the first Philippine preview of Jump Force, which will come out in 2019. The game will be available for playing at Uniqlo Manila until Dec. 31
