Update [Wed 9th Nov, 2022 14:30 GMT]: After weeks of radio silence from Nintendo, we now know that these real-life Splatoon X Pokémon Splatfest T-shirts are coming to the UK! Moreover, they are available for order on My Nintendo Store right now!

Each of the three shirts matches the ones your in-game character is wearing after they voted for Team Fire-, Grass-, or Water-Type at the upcoming Splatoon 3 Splatfest. They are available in a variety of sizes from Kids to XL for adults at a price £17.99 – £22.99 depending on which size you choose.
As with many editions of the My Nintendo Store, these items are only available to one purchaser. On top of that, we won’t get our hands on the tops for a while yet, as the expected release date is currently listed for January 13, 2023.
T-shirts will only be available while supplies last, so if you want to keep the Splatfest celebration going into next year, be sure to grab one while you can!
Original article [Wed 12th Oct, 2022 18:30 BST]: Last week’s announcement of the Pokémon-themed Splatfest coming to Splatoon 3 in November introduced us to three particularly neat-looking collaboration t-shirts. What started as a virtual award was soon announced that they would receive a physical award. real life release at the New York Nintendo Store and Pokémon Centers throughout Japan.
Today, Nintendo Australia expanded the retailer list by confirming that Splatfest Water-, Fire- and Grass-Type T-shirts will also be released for Australian and New Zealand residents.
While we don’t have an official announcement from any of the regions yet on when these t-shirts will be available for purchase, we do know that the next Splatfest will start. 11th of November – so they will probably be released by then.
Notably, this leaves Nintendo Europe as the last topless region (we mean no Pokemon t-shirts, not literally topless). We’re keeping our fingers crossed that a physical release can take a trip across the ocean, but after today’s talk on My Nintendo Store, maybe dropping a t-shirt would be too much stress.
