Uniqlo is no stranger to collaboration. The fashion brand’s UT line of graphic t-shirts has already been graced with designs from Disney, Lego, SPRZ NY, and almost 50 others.

On the 15th of April, one more will join the fashion fray.

“The Game by Street Fighter” takes inspiration (and, of course, art assets) from the side-on fighting stalwart and spreads it across 12 unisex shirts.

Six utilize artwork from Street Fighter V, the latest mainline installment in the series, released in 2016. As you can see, they’re pretty bold silkscreen-style prints, in keeping with the darker and more comic-book styling of the later games. On this side, you can choose between Ryu, Chun Li, Akuma, Cammy, M. Bison, and Zeku.

Uniqlo Street Fighter Tee 7For those of a more retro inclination, six come from the 1991 classic Street Fighter II. This is the game that introduced multiple playable characters, multiplayer, and a combo system — the last one pretty much by accident.

Here there is a smattering of subtle designs, like a Street Fighter II logo or Ryu winding up a hadoken. We are also treated to some more outright-nerdy references, though, like Dhalsim stretching his famous arms off the shirt.

I especially like the 16-bit Guile dog-tag. For those who haven’t played much, other shirts are a good reminder of what a Double KO looks like, or how to perform a shoryuken.
