UNIQLO Releases Super Mario Bros. T-Shirts from UT Brand
UNIQLO released their new Super Mario Family Museum collection as part of their UT t-shirt graphic brand on April 1 at UNIQLO branches across Japan and via their online store.
Since the releases of the original Super Mario Bros. in 1985, Mario has continued to reign as one of the most symbolic and iconic video game characters of all time. UNIQLO pays their respect to the legendary plumber with this new collection which features classic designs from the game.
This first white t-shirt bears a print of the original 8-bit Mario. Underneath him is the B Dash command, something which will be familiar to any gamer. This commands enables Mario to run. If you look to the right of the t-shirt you’ll see part of Mario’s figure―he’s dashed off screen!
The next t-shirt has a chic black design with a pocket that features multiple Bullet Bills firing in all directions.
Another pocket design this time with a Chain Chomp poking its head out. We all have our memories with these feisty and irritable critters―one misstep or bad jump offers you as a meal to this crazy chomper.
Colourful stripes and a Yoshi egg decorate this t-shirt. Fans will be able to relate to the relief and excitement of seeing one of these shaking eggs.
This Princess Peach t-shirt is available as part of the women’s collection. A cute pink decorates the design which is complemented by a beautiful 2D graphic of Peach.
Mario has jumped on many boxes in his career and this one gives him a love heart. The t-shirt has simple black stripes against a white background which gives a French vibe to it.
At first glance you see polkadot, but upon closer inspection you’ll notice they’re actually Boos! They go perfectly with the pitch black background as they wait in the dark for Mario to walk by…
Similar to the t-shirt in the men’s collection, this one has the jump command on it. If you line it up with the men’s t-shirt it creates an image of Mario running and jumping!
Donkey Kong is another member of the Mario family, and only kids get his t-shirt. You’d better not steal his bananas.
Kids also get this exclusive bright green t-shirt with an adorable sleeping Yoshi on it. This one is perfect for easily-excitable children.
If you buy anything from this collection in-store it will come bagged in one of these question block shopping bags. These are limited in stock and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you’re in Osaka then you’ll definitely want to stop by the Shinsaibashi branch of UNIQLO. The entire store (from March 29) is lit up to create an awesome looking 8-bit Mario! More characters are planned to show their faces on the building too up until mid-April.

Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 Unveils 5 Sports in the Game
27.September.2019 | ANIME&GAME
As excitement is on the rise worldwide in anticipation for the Tokyo 2020 Games, the world just cannot wait for the release of the iconic Nintendo Switch™ game Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, which is due to be released very soon. Sega has just unveiled a small snippet of information on five events that are going to be included in the game which we are sharing with you today.
Tokyo 2020 100m
Aim for nothing but first place in the Tokyo 2020 100m. Increase your speed with the rapid push of a button. By building up your speed before the race starts and releasing it at the correct moment, you will get off to a dashing start. The “special dash” is a way to rapidly cut down on your time.
Tokyo 2020 Rugby Sevens
This game will plunge you straight into the action. Work with your team of seven and use a range of tactics such as passes, strong tackles and kicks to get the upper hand. Carry the ball to the goalline to watch those points roll in. When your special gauge reaches its max power, you will be able to use a “super dash” ability to get the ball to the goalline if on the offense. If on defence, your special ability is the “special tackle”, which will provide you with the power to whip the ball away from your opponent. These special abilities have the power to drastically turn the tables and are not to be taken lightly. This game features guest character Diddy Kong!
Tokyo 2020 Canoeing
Get your heart pumping with the thrill of competition while staying synchronised with your partner in a canoeing race. If your timing is perfect, you will pick up speed straight away. Team up with your friend and dive right into the fun. If you are falling behind, don’t let your heart sink in despair. Paddle as much as you can and you will be able to catch up with the others in no time!
Toyko 2020 Equestrian Jumping
Let no hurdle taint your gracefulness as you soar through the sky and clear each one. You can take part in Equestrian Jumping individually or as part of a team. Be careful of sharp turns and hurdles! When you increase your speed, your stamina will drop, however, you will recover lost stamina with every hurdle you successfully clear. If you manage to clear lots of hurdles in succession, you will gain enormous amounts of speed and will be on your way to a record-breaking winner. You can also use a special dash once in this game. If you manage to use it while successfully striking a difficult pose, you will continue to zoom off to the finish line at high speed. This game features Larry Koopa as a special guest!
Tokyo 2020 Table Tennis
Face off in a singles match or team up with your friend for a doubles match. Your avatar will move automatically, allowing you to fully dedicate your brain power to using a range of techniques. Build up your power to change the speed and spin of the ball.Zazz has infiltrated this game to take part as a guest character!
Join in the Tokyo 2020 celebration fun with these new epic games!

UNIQLO’s New MySize CAMERA App Introduces bodygram Which Measures Your Body
10.September.2019 | FASHION
UNIQLO’s new MySize CAMERA app has adopted a new deep learning AI program called “bodygram” which can measure multiple areas of your body wherever and whenever by just taking a photo, and with your clothes on too.
Once you’ve entered the person’s height, weight, sex, and age, the snap of a picture will determine the measurements of 10 areas of a person’s body including the chest, hip, and waist.
The data is broken down on an easy-to-read chart which will be indispensable when going out and buying clothes.
Obviously when it comes to vague set sizes like small and medium, the number of cm of a waist, or specifics like shoulders or even waist, measurements can vary from brand to brand. The app solves this issue by having a set measurement and enables you to customise measurements from brand to brand.
The future of clothes shopping is here with bodygram.
