Interested fans will be able to head down to the pop-up shop at Venice Beach on December 9.
Cloud9 has today announced a new collaboration with Toei Animation for their new One Piece merch. Two of the most prominent organizations in their respective industries are coming together to pay respects to one of the biggest Anime series ever. The Cloud9 x One Piece collection will bring its fans various clothing options, including t-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, and much more, as they aim to combine esports and One Piece to produce the right product for everyone.
“Our team is thrilled to collaborate with Toei Animation on this exciting ‘One Piece’ collection,” said Jack Etienne, Co-Founder and CEO of Cloud9. “We wanted to create a collection that not only celebrates the world of esports but also pays tribute to one of the most beloved anime series of all time. We believe that our fans and followers will love the Cloud9 x One Piece collection as much as we do.”
So when is the Cloud9 x One Piece collaboration available for purchase? Fans can purchase any Cloud9 x One Piece merchandise from the Cloud9 store starting December 9. Cloud9 will also hold a pop-up shop at Venice Beach on the launch day.
As mentioned earlier, One Piece is one of the most iconic Anime series ever, and collaborating with an esports organization such as Cloud9 is a big deal. This is not the first time we have seen esports organizations collaborate with an Anime series, with TSM collaborating with Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and Team Liquid partnering with Naruto. This is arguably Cloud9's most significant merchandise collaboration, with the North American organization previously working with clothing brand PacSun and sporting goods manufacturer Puma.
