Mario Family (ジャガーミシン刺しゅう専用ソフトマリオファミリー Jaguar Mishin Sashi Senyou Soft: Mario Family) is a piece of software for the Game Boy Color released only in Japan to be compatible with Jaguar's JN-100 sewing machine. The JN-100 came with a cable that would link it to a Game Boy Color, and in the game the player can choose one of several designs that the machine can copy onto fabric. Another more recent model, the JN-2000, also works with a Game Boy Color.


This section is under construction. Therefore, please excuse its informal appearance while it's being worked on. We hope to have it completed as soon as possible.

The Mario Family cartridge has 32 patterns stored in it; note that, in the case of Mario, Luigi, and Yoshi, the same pattern is copied twice. Players can also alter the colors of the below patterns with a number of alternate palettes. The patterns are pixelated versions of classic-era hand-drawn Mario character/item artworks, created and published for games like Super Mario World.


  • There was a canceled game in the Kirby series called Kirby Family, which also used the Jaguar sewing machine.
