This graphic collection of retro video game t-shirts is bound to hit a nostalgic note, especially for members of the gaming community. Japanese fashion brand Uniqlo has dominated the industry this year with its playful thematic and graphic-heavy capsules. While the general affordability of the product is a definite catalyst for purchase, the cult-favorite themes are a strong factor, as well.

The latest Uniqlo drop is done in collaboration with Japanese game company Namco. The graphics present the stylish revival of "the 8-bit magic of the past." From Pacman to Dual Fighter, the retro video game t-shirts feed of the power of nostalgia. Much like the openings of arcade bars, this collaboration is essentially a fashion-forward manifestation of the recent surge of geeky game revival.
