Nintendo T-Shirt Design Contest Winner And Runner-Ups Revealed, See Them Here

The person who came up with this design apparently gets $10,000 and a Switch signed by Miyamoto himself.


[UPDATE] Pricing for the US has now been confirmed. The shirts go for $14.90 for men and women, and $9.90 for children. It's also been revealed that there were an astonishing 16,000 entries from around the world for the contest.

The original story is below.

Last year, Nintendo announced a collaboration with clothing company Uniqlo that challenged the community to come up with a t-shirt design themed around the Mario company. The winner and runner-ups have now been revealed.

The grand prize-winning shirt is Mario-themed, featuring a minimalistic 8-bit version of the portly plumber on the front and a simple "M" on the back, at the bottom. The men's and women's versions will sell for 1,500 yen in Japan, with a child's size available for 990 yen.

The person who came up with the design apparently gets a $10,000 prize and a Nintendo Switch autographed by none other than Shigeru Miyamoto, among other cool things.

The second prize went to a Splatoon-themed shirt, while the third-place design is themed around Zelda and features an ornate front and back. They are all really cool, so it must have been tough to decide a winner among the numerous entries that no doubt came in.

Go to Uniqlo's website to learn more.

In other Nintendo news, the Switch sold 2.74 million units in its first month. It's the fastest-selling console in Nintendo's history.
