Update (Thu 2nd Jan, 2020 10:00 BST): As New Year festivities were taking place this week, clothing retailer Uniqlo was busy getting its brand new 'Mario Kart Friendship' range of t-shirts and hoodies available. You can go ahead and pick them up from the Uniqlo website as we speak (we've shared images of some of the best options below).
All designs are for children only, meaning sizes only range from ages 3 to 13, but if you have a special youngster in your life you might just find a perfect gift or two here.
Original Article (Fri 11th Oct, 2019 11:30 BST): Clothing retailer Uniqlo has revealed a new line of kids' t-shirts and hoodies featuring a host of our favourite characters from the Mario Kart series. The collection will be called 'Mario Kart Friendship' - it doesn't get much more adorable than that.
Japanese Nintendo reports that the new line will be appearing in stores in January 2020, with t-shirts set to be priced at ¥790 (approx. £6 / $7.30) and hoodies at ¥1,990 (approx. £14.70 / $18.40) before tax. There's currently no word on whether or not these designs will make it to the west either online or in stores, but we've seen plenty of Uniqlo and Nintendo crossover designs be released across the world in the past.
Here's a closer look at just some of the designs:
Here's hoping we get the chance to snap up these designs overseas!
I like the grey hoodie with Mario, that's my jam right there.
Ooh, I do love Uniqlo’s designs, I got one of the Pokemon ones and a Yu Yu Hakusho one a few weeks ago.
Looks nice, and cheaper than Mario Kart Tours in app purchases!
@Smigit hahahah you made my day, is insane the pricetag of those purchases.
I love Uniqlo shirts. They are really good quality especially for the price. Fully recommend them to anyone.
I would've loved the Lakitu one if the fishing pool went into a pocket.
w...wait what's lakitu fishing up there
The Lakitu one is fantastic!!
I do like the "Who's gonna win?" design even if making Yoshi yellow gets a raised eyebrow from me.
@Raylax I... don't want to think too much about this but what I can tell you is that he is not happy.
Decent shirts, but...it just feels wrong for Royal Raceway to be referred to as "Peach Circuit," even when that's the Japanese name for it.
I like the ones that have Yoshi in them. Those just look great to me. Will definitely get those if I get the chance (and for a fair price).

Grey Mario Kart Hoodie, really neat. I've already got a SMK tee, that I can just put over longer-sleeved shirts, however.
Wish there were adult ones as well.
@TheAwesomeBowser Ummm... UNIQLO is also for Adults, they have stuff for kids alright, but the majority of their stuff is aimed at grown-ups.
To be honest, these look pretty crap.. 🤔
This collection is looking awesome. To be honest I definitely want to try one of these. Mario was my favourite game of my childhood. Can I share this collection on https://www.geektech.support/geek-squad-tech-support-australia/
A certain grown man around here would proudly wear that undersized Peach Circuit shirt without any sense of irony.
From a distance, the pose on the "Peach Circuit" garments almost makes it look as if she is bored / fed up! 😆
