Riot Games and Japanese clothing brand, Uniqlo, has just released their collaboration featuring six League of Legends T-shirts as part of Uniqlo's "UT Graphic Tees" collection on Monday.

After an awaited announcement on Twitter in April, the collaboration between Uniqlo and League of Legends has finally released on Monday for stores all across the U.S. with limited supply.

The League of Legends collaboration features six different shirts, all of them for unisex wear and range from XXS to 3XL. Designs on the shirts feature Poros, Jinx, Ekko, Lux and even Riot Games' fictitious K-pop group K/DA.

The collection is well-known for its collaborations with various pop culture icons, including video games and anime/manga. Uniqlo has previously partnered with the likes of Disney, Marvel and even guitar companies releasing apparel for children and adults for the same price at an upwards of $19.90. However, there is no children's release for this collaboration with League of Legends.

As to why League of Legends has a collaboration with Uniqlo, Ryan Crosby, head of Riot Games' entertainment marketing, said, "Uniqlo is dedicated to creating unique and personalized forms of expression and passion through their UT collections, and we find similar passion with what we create for players of Riot Games."

Collaborations with clothing brands are not a new concept with League of Legends, as Riot Games has partnered with the likes of popular brands of A Bathing Ape, better known as BAPE, and Louis Vuitton, costing an upwards of hundreds, if not thousands of dollars.
