After getting a sneak peek at the footwear offering, Vans offers up a full look at their collaborative capsule with Nintendo for Summer 2016.

The collection features an extensive range of footwear, apparel and accessories celebrating the early days of video games.

Vans presents exclusive graphic prints using 8-bit inspired artwork and characters from iconic titles like Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, Donkey Kong and The Legend of Zelda, as well as an assortment inspired by Nintendo's first console, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).

The footwear assortment includes four variations of the Authentic silhouette. The Super Marios Bros. colorway sports images from the Mushroom Kingdom. The Tie-Dye showcases an all-over character print of Mario, alongside several "power-ups" and the villainous Goomba over an 8-bit tie-dye pattern. A second color-up features Princess Peach, awaiting rescue from her brave hero. Duck Hunt comes to life atop a digi-camo backdrop featuring the hunting dog and flying duck. And finally, a Donkey Kong edition, incorporating imagery from its first level of Duck Hunt.

The Classic Slip-On appears in the sneaker lineup with graphics and quotes from The Legend of Zelda. A Sidestriped trio of the Sk8-Hi, Old Skool and Sk8-Hi Slim for women pay homage to the NES with prints and colors inspired by the console.

The entire Nintendo x Vans collection drops June 3 in both adults and children's sizing. For more info, visit Vans.com/Nintendo.
