Let’s face it: early into the pandemic, when cabin fever kicked in, Animal Crossing was the coping mechanism that helped us make it through. The relaxing nature and the adorable characters of the social-simulation video game gave us a semblance of relief by imitating normal, day-to-day life – except we’re all anthropomorphic animals, but even that can be seen as a plus.
One year later and it’s still safe to say that we still have the Animal Crossing craze in us. If you still do, then let your love for these cute and cooperative villagers show with UNIQLO’s upcoming Animal Crossing: New Horizons collection set to come out next month!
With designs inspired by the various animal characters like K.K. Slider and island elements like Dodo Airlines and Able Sisters Tailor Shop from the famous Nintendo Switch game, the Animal Crossing collection is UNIQLO’s latest addition to its UT line. Be beach-ready with goods ranging from cool graphic shirts for all ages to tote bags and two-way towels bearing cute characters like Isabelle, Gulliver, and the twin raccoons Timmy and Tommy.
The Animal Crossing x UNIQLO UT collection launches at the UNIQLO website and stores starting May 28.
