I was never really allowed to go to an arcade as a kid.
The culture of slotting tokens alluded me until I was late in secondary school, unfortunately.
But you know what I was allowed to have though? Marvel Comics.
Little me was always so immersed in the world of heroes and morally grey villains and continue to love them even till this day!
Along with so many Marvel movies these past few years, it’s definitely a great age to be a fan.
And if you’re a fan of both? Lucky you, because we got some value coming your way.
The Best Of Both Worlds
If you put two and two together, you know the answer is indeed four.
To celebrate Marvel’s 80th Anniversary, UNIQLO Singapore has launched Marvel Retro Gaming UTs!
