Nintendo is adding to its growing list of collaborations, this time with apparel company Champion.
On Tuesday, the gaming giant unveiled a “limited edition capsule collection” in honour of the 35th anniversary of “Super Mario Bros.” One piece, overalls inspired by Mario’s iconic look, will be available in a “super-limited quantity,” the company said.
The collection will be available starting Nov. 18 both online and some brick-and-mortar retailers. Prices range from $US30-$US150. Pieces include a black hoodie with Princess Peach, a tye-dye shirt featuring Toad, and other iconic Nintendo characters.
“As a brand that celebrated its centennial anniversary last year, Champion was thrilled to commemorate another iconic brand’s milestone,” David Robertson, director of Champion global brand marketing, said in a statement. “From the beginning, ‘Super Mario Bros.’ has represented teamwork by introducing many beloved characters who work together for the greater good. Champion is a brand that celebrates teams, in any shape or form, and we’re excited to welcome the whole Super Mario Bros. crew to ours.”
This collaboration isn’t the only way Nintendo is commemorating 35 years of “Super Mario Bros.”
Earlier this year, the company re-released Super Mario 64 â€” along with “Super Mario Sunshine” and “Super Mario Galaxy” â€” on Nintendo Switch consoles, and partnered with Amazon for Super Mario shipping boxes.
The tech company has also collaborated with other clothing retailers in the past, including fellow Japanese brand Uniqlo.
Champion has also been catering to gamers this year, with a special “Gamer Collection,” according to The Verge.
