Legendary Mother 2 sukajan jacket available to order later this month

Mother 2 Sukajan Jacket

The developers of Mother 2 were issued special embroidered “sukajan” jackets to celebrate the RPG’s release in 1994, and it will reappear this month in Japan for fans to purchase. The “Mother 2 Souvenir Jacket” will go for 88,000 yen (about $840) starting at 11:00 a.m. JST on Feb. 25, 2021, on EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi’s Hobonichi Project store.

Fashion designer Kunihiko Morinaga’s label Anreleage and sukajan-maker Tailor Toyo are working together on the Mother 2 jacket, which ships out sometime in October 2021 for those lucky enough to get their hands on one. The sukajan will be available in very limited quantities, so we can expect it to sell out right away.

The Mother 2 sukajan is the holy grail of EarthBound collector’s items, but it is more sentimental to the original staff. The jacket was a trophy to commemorate the work that went into the game developed by Ape and HAL Laboratory. The late Nintendo President Satoru Iwata described it as one of his most prized possessions in a tweet back in 2013:

“[Iwata] Hello, this is Iwata from Nintendo. Continuing from yesterday, we have a look at more goods from Mother 2. This Sukajan was specially made and distributed to the staff. The logo is firmly reproduced by embroidery. This is also one of my most prized possessions.”

For more on Mother 2 goods beyond this slick jacket, last month saw the Mother Music Revisited album release in Japan.
