The 25th Anniversary celebration of the Legend of Zelda simply will not end. It started in June with Link’s Awakening for the Nintendo 3DS e-Shop. Soon after we go Ocarina of Time 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. A couple months later we got a free Four Swords Anniversary edition, followed by the beginning of the Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony Concert. Then of course we got the release of SKyward Sword for the Nintendo Wii and most recently, The Minish Cap for Nintenod 3DS Ambassadors. When will it end? Apparently not yet, as Nintendo is now celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Legend of Zelda with new t-shirts! Make the jump for some more information.
Originally posted over at the Nintendo of Japan website, these shirts are for sale over at The King of Games. Available in both Green and Black, these shirts are for sale at the price of 5500 yen. Based on currency exchange rates, this actually puts these shirts at a rather obnoxious $70 a piece! That being said, straight currency exchange rates are not a good way to look at prices, as the Japanese pay more for virtually all goods. Pre-orders for the shirts start on December 24th, 2011 and run through February 20th, 2012. Shirts will ship out in May 2012. Kind of a long time to wait for a t-shirt if you ask me…
No word on whether or not these shirts will ever make it outside of Japan, but based on previous shirts that have appeared on The King of Games, chances are this will remain a Japanese exclusive. I suppose it’s nice to see Nintendo releasing other goodies for the anniversary, but it would be nice if these things were available across the globe for a reasonable price.
You can head on over to the Nintendo of Japan website for more high quality pictures of these anniversary shirts.
