UNIQLO is partnering with Fortnite for a clothing line that releases in December 2019, but they gave us a sneak peek at what to expect with the new designs.
Fortnite is one of the most popular games in the world so it’s no surprise to see so much merch popping up that takes advantage of this.
Since the release of the battle royale mode in 2017, it has skyrocketed in popularity and we now see NERF guns, Funko Pop! collectibles, action figures, and much more.
Now we know UNIQLO is partnering with the game and releasing a clothing line of their own. Fortnite has already dabbled in the clothing merch scene but never with UNIQLO.
For those out of the loop, UNIQLO creates a lot of video game apparel for games such as Overwatch, Street Fighter, Mario and many more.
This is a brand that focuses a lot of selling video game apparel to the masses so a Fortnite collaboration is huge for them if they want to reach an even broader audience.
The official Fortnite Twitter account gave us our first look at what to expect with a couple of different designs but there will surely be many more included once the line launches in December.
If you’re in the market for some Fortnite clothes and don’t want to wait for this design to launch, you can check out what’s for sale on Amazon.
There’s quite the selection of officially licensed gear for sale so you know you’re getting good quality if you do decide to go through with a purchase.
The UNIQLO line currently has no prices available for any of the gear. If you see something you like and are short on money, it might be worth saving up for it now.

Here’s how you can purchase collectible streamer figures from Target – Ninja, Timthetatman, and more
Some of gaming’s most popular personalities are set to have their own line of collectible figures that will be available for purchase at Target stores thanks to this leaked picture for an employee.
Top streaming personalities across Twitch and Mixer like Ninja, Summit1G, and Dr Disrespect will be getting modeled into their very own LAMO figures.
Several streamers on August 3 and August 4 tweeted promotional teaser pictures showing their outlines, including LIRIK’s.

The collectibles are to be sold in retail Target stores, and one employee leaked a picture of the figures included in the first wave of release.

A picture was leaked on Twitter on August 2 which show off the first line of LAMO figures to be sold where we can finally see the entire package.

Here are the first confirmed five streamers to have their own LAMO figures:
- Dr Disrespect
Each figure has its own sense of personality as fans will not be able to show their support by purchasing the first wave of LAMO collectible figures. For example, Dr Disrespect’s figure includes the two-time’s signature sunglasses while Ninja’s proudly showcases his iconic bright blue hair.
The leaker did not say if there were any more streamers included in the first wave as he has only seen the initial five.
Fans who are interested in purchasing any of the LAMO figures will have to head to their local Target in the “action figure” or “video game” section.
Are you going to pick up any of the figures? Who is the first one you are going to collect? Let us know!
Epic Games drop Fortnite World Cup-themed merch
Fortnite fans have been able to purchase different items of merchandise, toys, and collectibles to show off their love through the Retail Row merch store, and now die-hards can buy World Cup-themed clothing.
Epic Games launched its Fortnite merch store, Retail Row, on December 19, 2018, that included the Durr Burger onesie that went on to sell out.
The store has gone on to include Funko Pop figures, skateboard decks, plushies, and more in order to help any Fortnite fan show off their passion for Victory Royales.
Announced during the Fortnite World Cup Duo Finals, the Retail Row shop has been updated to include nine new items designed after the $30 million tournament.
World Cup merch
During the middle of matches, Zeke announced that Fortnite World Cup merch is now available through the online Retail Row shop.
Of the nine newly added items there are two hoodies, three different World Cup-themed t-shirts, a baseball cap, and youth t-shirts.
If you want to take a look at the yellow hoodie, guest host Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins can be seen on the Fortnite World Cup Duo Finals broadcast donning the new piece of merch! Ninja will be casting alongside Jack ‘Courage’ Dunlop.

Fortnite teases apparel crossover with Uniqlo prior to World Cup
Fortnite will be pairing up with Uniqlo to bring stylish and affordable merchandise to fans.
Epic Games have revealed their next major collaboration project as a partnership with clothing brand, Uniqlo. The company is specifically known for their modest pricing and clean designs.
The reveal came in a tweet on Thursday, July 25, a day before the start of the Fortnite World Cup. Several influncers were quick to show off some of the products via social media.
Fortnite X Uniqlo Collaboration Coming Soon
Epic didn’t want to spill every detail about the Uniqlo partnership just yet. All we have so far, officially, is a teaser via the Fortnite main account.
As Uniqlo is a clothing brand, the most obvious form of ‘collab’ for the two companies is in the form of Fortnite themed clothes. This might range from shirts and hoodies to sweaters and more! It’s quite an exciting development as the brand’s pricing should allow a wide audience to buy up the merch.

With that said, neither Epic or Uniqlo have released anything else about the ‘crossover’ at this time. We expect prices and a web store for the items to go up in the coming days. Epic Games may use the Fortnite World Cup Finals as a way to promote this new venture with Uniqlo.
Ninja posted a picture of himself sporting a possible Uniqlo hoodie at the Finals venue. No confirmation on that front yet, but we’re fairly confident this is a sneak-peek of the hoodies that will be available.

Also, MonsterDface posted an image of himself wearing a Fortite Llama shirt. The commentator/content creator specifically mentions Uniqlo in the tweet.
No additional details have been released about any of the products so far. We also don’t know if Epic Games intends to have some in-game Uniqlo content. While this could be the case, the collaboration will probably mainly focus on the new Fortnite themed clothing.
What do you think of this new merch deal from Epic and Uniqlo? We certainly think it’s a great look from the first pictures and hope to see more soon. Our wallets are at the ready!
