Team Liquid announced its latest merch collaboration earlier today. This time, the esports organization is teaming up with Naruto Shippuden to bring anime and esports fans together.
The lifestyle apparel collection combines Hidden Leaf ninjas and Team Liquid’s logo to create one-of-a-kind clothing that blends streetwear with high fashion. The denim jacket, parka, joggers, hoodies, and t-shirts in the collection feature Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Kakashi, and other popular characters from the iconic anime series.

The clothing will drop on Friday, February 12 at noon, available to United States residents only.
This is Team Liquid’s latest collaboration with a large, non-endemic intellectual property. In 2019, Team Liquid locked in a blockbuster partnership with Disney and Marvel Comics. This saw the organization roll out jerseys based on a slew of Marvel properties including Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Iron Man, and the Avengers. The collaboration was widely praised and demonstrated the mainstream visibility of Team Liquid.
It is unclear how long the Team Liquid x Naruto collaboration will run for and how many more ninja-inspired outfits will be rolled out.
