Mario Kart Racing merch available on Zavvi for one week only

Zavvi has its own range of Mario Kart clothing, memorabilia, and metal number plates – but only for seven days and counting.

Did you know Zavvi has an exclusive deal with Nintendo to make limited edition apparel based on its most famous games? We know we didn’t, but they’ve actually got a really nice range of T-shirts and tops based on Super Mario, The Legend Of Zelda, and Luigi’s Mansion 3.

The Super Mario ones all seem to be sold out and the Mario Kart Racing ones are guaranteed to be joining them soon… because they’re only going to be on sale for seven days.

The range launched on Sunday, 24 November and will end this weekend, presumably never to be seen again – there’s even a countdown timer on the website.

Why they’d want to limit something like that we don’t know but then Nintendo themselves can be very funny about their merchandise and things like the pop-up Pokémon Center in London that disappeared the moment Pokémon Sword and Shield was released.

There are 25 items in the Mario Kart range, which includes T-Shirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies, but also caps, mugs, and extra limited edition (with only 100 of each design) metal number plates.

Whether these items are being made available anywhere else in the world we’re not sure, but you’d have to assume so given a fair amount of effort seems to have been expended here, even just counting the Mario Kart Racing branding.

It all seems to be part of Nintendo’s ongoing attempt to make use of its characters outside of just video games, including a theme park and new dedicated store in Japan.
