Hot Topic cashing in on the Wii wave



I admit it. When Hot Topic started selling video game shirts years ago I bought one and proudly wore it. I thought the retro shirts were cool, but the market for gamer fashion is far from chic anymore. Hot Topic keeps churning out video game shirts with the “next big thing” instead of making anything creative. Case in point this Nintendo Wii shirt with the remote and the nunchuck on the front. I’ll pass on getting the Wii shirt, but they do have something I sort of want that Super Mario sound effects keychain. It has six 8-bit sounds from Super Mario Brothers, just like the sound drops, but conveniently packaged in one device.
