Uniqlo Announces New Street Fighter Collaboration

Choose your fighter!

By 1 min read

Uniqlo is no stranger to collaboration. The fashion brand’s UT line of graphic t-shirts has already been graced with designs from Disney, Lego, SPRZ NY, and almost 50 others.

On the 15th of April, one more will join the fashion fray.

Uniqlo x Street Fighter

“The Game by Street Fighter” takes inspiration (and, of course, art assets) from the side-on fighting stalwart and spreads it across 12 unisex t-shirts.

Six utilize artwork from Street Fighter V, the latest mainline installment in the series, released in 2016. As you can see, they’re pretty bold silkscreen-style prints, in keeping with the darker and more comic-book styling of the later games. On this side, you can choose between Ryu, Chun Li, Akuma, Cammy, M. Bison, and Zeku.

Uniqlo Street Fighter Tee 7For those of a more retro inclination, six come from the 1991 classic Street Fighter II. This is the game that introduced multiple playable characters, multiplayer, and a combo system — the last one pretty much by accident.

Here there is a smattering of subtle designs, like a Street Fighter II logo or Ryu winding up a hadoken. We are also treated to some more outright-nerdy references, though, like Dhalsim stretching his famous arms off the shirt.

I especially like the 16-bit Guile dog-tag. For those who haven’t played much, other shirts are a good reminder of what a Double KO looks like, or how to perform a shoryuken.
