Nothing says that you've visited Nintendo Tokyo than wearing an exclusive t-shirt that says it all. Currently available in red and grey, it's the kind of style statement that you can wear loud and proud back home. So get both colours, if you can!
Nintendo Tokyo's other highlights include the Super Mario x Pokemon 8-bit Scramble line.
