A collaboration between the RPG “MOTHER” released in 1989 for Nintendo’s game console “Family Computer” and Casio’s shock-resistant watch “G-SHOCK”. As a bespoke model, lottery sales will be held from January 20, 2022 at the Web shop of “Hobonichi’MOTHER’Project”.
MOTHER is an RPG (role-playing game) that became a hot topic when copywriter Shigesato Itoi was in charge of game design. In addition, the Hobonichi “MOTHER” project is working to enjoy MOTHER with fans around the world through content and goods related to MOTHER.
This collaboration model is based on the G-SHOCK “GW-M5610U”. It is a square model that inherits the original G-SHOCK. It is equipped with functions such as “Multiband 6” that receives standard radio waves from 6 stations around the world and adjusts the time, and “Tough Solar” that obtains drive power by light.
In the collaboration model, the “MOTHER” logo and “SMAAAASH !!” dot characters are printed on the character version. It uses the same gold and blue as the original logo. The back lid is engraved with the “earth mark” inherited from generations of the “MOTHER” series.
The watch is delivered in an original can case. This can case is specially designed using the MOTHER symbol color “red” and has the “MOTHER” logo on the top (upper lid).
Regarding the sales method, from 11:00 am on January 20, 2022 to 11:00 am on January 27, 2022, applications for lottery sales will be accepted at the Hobonichi MOTHER Project Web shop . The price is 23,100 yen, and delivery to the winners is scheduled for early February 2022. The collaboration model will be a limited edition product and will not be resold.
