Nintendo Vans Collection Coming to Australia and NZ

For over a month Australian & New Zealander Nintendo fans have pined over the Vans and Nintendo ¬†collection that launched in various countries around the world. Well it won’t be much longer until we will be able to own these stylishly geeky items for ourselves.


Come July 27th, Vans and Platypus stores, along with a few specialty retailers around our two southern nations will start stocking the Nintendo range of shoes, apparel and accessories that are inspired from series such as Super Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda and Duck Hunt as well as the¬†NES in general. While the press release isn’t explicit as to whether the full range will be available at launch, the wording seems to suggest most, if not all items in the collection will be available.

The range features items in both adult and children’s sizes meaning fans of all ages will be able to pick something up that catches their eye (assuming they aren’t sold out by the time you make it to the store).


Neither Nintendo or Vans have released pricing and it also isn’t known if you will be able to purchase any of these products off of either Vans’ or Platypus’s online storefronts. Reports from the U.S.A. and Europe suggested stock was quite limited, so if you are looking at picking something from this range up, I suggest heading to your local Vans retailer early Wednesday morning.

There is nothing more he loves than getting together, either online or offline with a bunch of fellow gamers, to yell at each other until we just want to punch one another in the throat while discussing video games.
