The Australian and New Zealand licensing agent, Merchantwise Licensing, has brokered a new partnership between Microsoft’s Xbox and the Australian retailer, EB Games that will see the in-store launch of a new collection of Xbox branded merchandise.

Under the new partnership, all EB Games stores across Australia will feature an endcap showcasing several Xbox licensed products, including branded unisex apparel and accessories such as wallets, caps, travel mugs, drink bottles, socks and beach towels.

Launching in time for festive gift-giving, the program also includes digital in-store POS, digital marketing and social posts.

“EB Games has designed and launched an exciting and extensive range of licensed products that are sure to satisfy Australian fans wanting to further connect and engage with their much-loved brand. We are certain it will be a retail success – especially ahead of the festive gift-giving period.”
