Following up on last month’s NES Classic Hoodie, Merchoid (the videogame merchandise specialist), have now revealed the SNES Classic Hoodie. The hoodie will coincide with the release of the SNES Classic Mini. Based on the European and Japanese versions of the early 90s console, this hoodie takes its inspiration from the console’s greytone colour scheme with added body paneling on the shoulder and arms, as well as the instantly recognizable SNES logo on the chest.
Merchoid’s Community Manager Jessica Adams says of the new hoodie “Who doesn’t remember the golden age of 16-bit gaming and the almighty console war between Nintendo and Sega for gaming supremacy? Battlelines were drawn, households divided, best friends torn apart as you decided whether you stood with a ring collecting, blue speed demon or a friendly Italian plumber.”
Also revealed today was the Nintendo: SNES Controller Wallet. Modeled after the compact gaming pad, the bifold wallet has a wrap around design with 3D detailing on the controller buttons. Inside there is ample space to store cards, notes as well as a zipped coin compartment for any loose change.
Jessica says; “What does your wallet say about you? This handy compact wallet will declare to the world your gaming pedigree. However, you may find yourself buying more than usual just to increase the number of times you show it off.”
The SNES Classic Hoodie’ as well as the SNES Controller Keyring, SNES Controller Rubber Patch Cap and Nintendo: SNES Controller Bifold Wallet are available to preorder from Merchoid.com now.
