Shopping at Uniqlo is always a pleasant surprise, as the massive retail chain often features special collections and collabs with hip designers, cool artists and trendy pop culture brands. Later this month, Uniqlo is unveiling a fun new attraction in celebration of Capcom's 40th anniversary. The Japanese video game developer is widely known for its world-renowned games and franchises such as Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Monster Hunter and many more.

For this anniversary collab, Uniqlo is dropping a new collection of UT T-shirts featuring some of Capcom's most popular games. There will also be a playable arcade machine in front of its Harajuku store between March 26 and March 31.

On the machine you can play Uniqlo's very own video game called UT Adventure. Created just for Uniqlo, the super retro 8-bit game features the protagonist shopping in Uniqlo while fending off attacks by T-shirt-stealing aliens. Play close attention to the game as it’s riddled with easter eggs, ie, surprise appearances by iconic characters from Capcom. 

For now, you can already play the first level of UT Adventure online. Once the game machine is installed at the Harajuku store, you'll be able to play the game there between 11am and 7pm on weekdays and from 10.30am to 7pm on weekends.

The Capcom T-shirt collection will also be available from March 26. Check out the entire collection online.
