Yoko Taro Sells Merchandise and Will Donate Part of Sales to Ukraine

Yoko Taro revealed on Twitter that he has put up a Bukkoro merchandise shop on the Suzuri web store platform. The shop sells T-shirts and hoodies branded with Yoko Taro’s logo, each available in two colors—black and white. Parts of the proceedings from these merchandise sales in March 2022 will go to donations for humanitarian aid in Ukraine and other regions in Europe.

Both T-shirts are available at 4,510 yen (~$39). The white hoodie has a price tag of 4,983 yen (~$43), while the black one has the highest price at 5,533 yen (~$48). All items are available in four sizes, from S to XL. People outside Japan can also order these clothes, as the web store offers the WorldShipping service.

All of the Yoko Taro merchandise mentioned here are part of the humanitarian donation drive enacted on Suzuri in March 2022. For each item sold by March 31, 2022, GMO Pepabo—the company behind the web store—will donate 1,000 yen to the Japanese Red Cross Society. The latter will then channel the donations for rescue operations in Ukraine and other European regions. Yoko Taro will also personally donate 300 yen for each item sold in the same duration, although he has yet to confirm his own donation target.

Yoko Taro is a Japanese game creator best known for the NieR and Drakengard series. His latest game released to date is Voice of Cards: The Forsaken Maiden. The role-playing game with card-based visuals is available immediately on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
