Providing comfort and style at an affordable price, UNIQLO is Japan’s no.1 store for picking up inexpensive everyday fashion. Often releasing limited edition designs, the fashion company is no stranger to collaborating with anime, manga and video games – as shown with these Pokémon and Kimetsu no Yaiba designs that were released last year.
This time, UNIQLO’s latest UT (UNIQLO T-shirts) collection will feature designs inspired by the Nintendo Switch game – Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Based on the concept of ‘connecting with friends through clothes’, the collection is inspired by the lives of the animals living in the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
Matching designs can also be enjoyed within the Nintendo Switch game, where they can be picked up from the original ‘UNIQLO island’ and worn by Animal Crossing: New Horizons characters.

The new collection will be available to purchase from UNIQLO stores nationwide and online from 29 April 2021. On the same day, ‘UNIQLO island’ will open to Animal Crossing: New Horizon game players, with the UT x Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection also available from within the game.

The collection is available in unisex designs, as well as for children and babies, so it can be enjoyed by a variety of ages and genders. Additionally, tote bags and towel goods featuring game designs will also be up for grabs in store. Incorporate a little bit of Animal Crossing: New Horizons island life into your reality with these free-spirited slow life designs.

Unisex adult T-shirt designs. Ranging from 1,500 yen to 1,900 yen each.

Children and babies designs. Ranging from 790 yen to 990 yen each.

Goods – 2 way towels (1,990 yen) and foldable ‘pocket’ eco bag (990 yen).

‘UNIQLO Island’ is set to be released in the game on the same day as the launch of the clothing collection at UNIQLO stores. Players will be able to visit the island using a dream address code which will be announced on the official website on 29 April 2021.

The island will feature a clothing store that replicates the interior of UNIQLO stores, and 22 types of UT x Animal Crossing: New Horizon designs will appear within the game, so that you can coordinate alongside your gaming character.
