Riot Games and UNIQLO (Yes, the clothing manufacturer and retailer) have announced they will be collaborating to create a League of Legends T-shirt collection. There will be six unique t-shirt designs featuring League of Legends champions, in-game elements, and the game’s iconic K-pop group, K/DA.
You’ll also be pleased to know that the T-shirts will be available worldwide. If you’re a League of Legends fan, it’s time to track down your nearest UNIQLO outlet. Each T-shirt will cost $19.90 USD in the USA. You’ll need to convert that to your local currency to work out roughly how much they will cost in your country.
Six ways to show your love of League of Legends
League of Legends now has over 140 champions. Unfortunately, that’s far too many for each get their own T-shirt. As such, Riot and UNIQLO have decided to go with some of the most iconic champions.
Putting K/DA on a T-shirt is a no-brainer. The K-pop group made up of League of Legends champions racks up millions of views each time it releases a new track. The game’s stylized logo and the cute collection of Poros are also solid choices. The logo is simple and to the point. The Poros are wildly popular and serve as a cute mascot for the game. Much like Porgs for Star Wars and the minions of Despicable Me.
As for the other League of Legends champions represented on the UNIQLO t-shirts, Jinx and Ekko each get their own designs. Ekko also makes it onto the group T-shirt alongside Lux, Annie, and a raging Tibbers. It’s a tough job to pick a handful of champions from so many iconic characters.
This isn’t the first time League of Legends has partnered with a clothing brand to create apparel for fans. At the end of 2019, it teamed up with Louis Vuitton for a much more expensive range of items. Around $20 USD for a shirt seems like a much better deal.
