Naruto x CASETiFY Co-Lab Brings Ninja Style to Your Smartphone

Naruto and CASETiFY are having their first-ever Co-Lab!

We all love to rep for our favorite anime day-to-day, whether it’s through our fashion choices or our daily carry. Smartphone accessory maker CASETiFY has long been a part of that movement, with Co-Labs for everything from Sailor Moon to One Piece. Their next anime-themed Co-Lab launches this week, and it’s bringing Hidden Leaf Village style to our digital accessories. That’s right — Naruto is next on the list!

We’ve got a sneak peek at what’s coming to the catalogue, and info on how you can be among the first to grab your favorite goodies!


The Selection

Ninja out your daily carry

Naturally, a Naruto collection is going to have to cover a lot of ground. With so many characters and villages in play, CASETiFY had their work cut out for them. And by the looks of things, they’re going all in!

The selection will include a variety of designs. Choose full-color art of your favorite character, a more subtle black case with a headband plate, or the Akatsuki red cloud emblem. There’s also a utility lanyard decorated with kunai, pop sockets, smartphone straps, and more. Whatever you choose, you can coordinate everything you need for your phone to your favorite design.


Late Arrival

Akatsuki Cloud Collectible AirPods Case

While most of these Naruto goods will be launching this week, one is going to be arriving fashionably late. The Akatsuki Cloud Collectible AirPods Case goes on sale in late January 2024. And if past launches are any indication, this limited-edition item will be snapped up in a hurry.

Previous limited-edition AirPods cases, like the One Piece transponder snail design, sold out in record time. Will that be the case for these? It’s anyone’s guess, but we have a feeling these may disappear in a hurry. Fortunately, there are plenty of other cases coming to the Co-Lab. So even if you can’t get your hands on this one, you can get a more standard Akatsuki case. Alternatively, there are Sharingan and headband designs in the running!


Ninja Bonuses

Collectible stickers for Gold and Silver members

Naruto fans who are also CASETiFY VIPs can grab some extra goodies, too! Gold and Silver level VIP members get priority access starting tonight. Plus, you’ll get one of twelve bonus stickers (seen above) with your purchase.

Not a VIP member? You still don’t have long to wait! General Public priority access opens December 12, with sales officially opening December 13. Meaning you won’t have long at all to wait until you can ninja up your phone and tablet.

Check out the Co-Lab page now, and mark your calendar so you can place your order as soon as goods go live!
