Frequently-featured artist Daniel Bressette’s latest (and awesomely starkest) latest is this kaiju-esque Metroid T-shirt, now available through Fangamer, and described as follows: “Civilizations crumble as the King of the Parasites descends from the skies! Behold the fell majesty, the speechless terror, the black fear from the depths of space: PARASITO.”
Previously only been quietly released in small numbers at an event earlier in the year, Gun Godz & Super Crate Box creators Vlambeer have just opened up orders for the Super Crate Bundle to the world at large, as part of a new merchandising push with online seller Level Up Studios.
The Bundle, which comes in an actual Super Crate, is limited to 250 copies and includes a 36-track soundtrack CD for all their games featuring Phlogiston, Kozilek, Doeseone, Alex Mauer, and Brother Android, a Vlambeer T-shirt, a Gun Godz print, buttons, and a thumb-drive with copies of 11 Vlambeer games, including Gun Godz itself (which you, ahem, should probably already have).
If you miss your chance at picking up a Bundle, Vlambeer’s also released the soundtrack CD (you can thank me later for the amazing die-cut cover idea) and various T-shirts separately, including the fantastic front & back Gun Godz design — find all of Level Up’s Vlambeer merch here.
As if you needed any more enticement to get on the bandwagon for Japan’s games-fashion label King of Games, the company has just revealed that any orders placed between now and December 22nd will receive a copy of a limited King of Games 10th Anniversary Special CD, featuring a nice lineup of music, chip & otherwise, including musician & Sound Shapes producer Jason ‘6955‘ Degroot.
You can stream clips of each of the songs above, and order via King of Games, who will also be giving a randomly selected number of orders a bonus, special edition silver-printed version of their ROLY-POLY HERO Kirby tribute shirt. There’s no word yet on whether the CD will see digital release following the promotion, but I’m on the hunt to find out more.
Today’s best fashion-news: Ashley ‘oddlookingbird‘ Davis — best known for her amazing No Marios Allowed art-blog, where she awesomely documents lesser-known Nintendo heros — has just released a wave of wearables to the Fangamer store, none better than this more or less perfect Banjo-Kazooie T-shirt.
The shirt can best be complimented with these NoMarios All-Stars badges featuring Pikmin, Bubble Bobble, Ice Climbers and most obscure-dly, Treasure’s underdog Nintendo 64 action game Mischief Makers. Find more Animal Crossing, Kirby & Pac-Man tributes (as well as Davis’s Once Upon A Pixel DVD) via Fangamer.
Lessons in Pokemon anatomy in the fantastic style of vintage kaiju illustration by artist Ryan ‘Rye-Bread‘ Mauskopf, currently employed by BustedTees, where — not coincidentally — you can find wearable versions of this + Charmander + Squirtle, plus a bonus Pikachu coming in the near future.

Local favorite game/fashion design house King of Games has just announced the re-availability of four classic and long out of print parka designs, now available for order via the official King of Games site. Above, a new version of their “Mario College” design, and below, the reprinted Zelda 20th Anniversary design featuring “the Evolution of Link’s shield (Famicom, Super Famicom, N64, Gamecube), crossed Master Swords, and Hyrulian text.”
Also available are two slightly more austere zip-up designs featuring Super Mario Bros. and Excitebike, each variously dotted with cross-stitched sprites from both games in strategic positions.
As with all King of Games designs, their ultra-limited availability and official license means you’ll pay a premium (especially for overseas shipping), but as it’s the first time many of these designs have been available worldwide, it’s more or less now or never.
Possibly one of the classiest mainstream-game-fashion-designs to hit your local Hot Topic (ie. one that doesn’t have “DON’T GO ALL ________ ON ME“/etc. plastered all over it), ThinkGeek offers this official Taito T-shirt, titled Moon Invasion.
