Speaking on how dedicated the fanbase of the Mother franchise is… they’ve even been in the process of making an unofficial entry to the series.

It’s slated to be released Winter this year and from what I can tell from the trailer, it looks to be almost as engaging as the official entries.

I know some will never consider playing this since Itoi himself said Mother 3 would be the last one, but then again in this interview it suggests that he may enjoy someone else making a Mother game. It’s not directly said but it seems like he wouldn’t mind.

Anyway, I’m looking forward to this regardless and will definitely be talking about it in a vlog when it comes out.

This is Roo’s video on the History of EarthBound. It’s a really interesting watch even if you’re not planning on playing the game anytime soon.

He also has a review of the game to follow this video up, but I suggest you play it first before watching (though he does have a spoiler warning near the end).

In honor of Mother's 25th anniversary, Youtuber Stephen Georg (known as StephenPlays) started his playthrough of Mother 1 today. He's certainly a huge fan of the series (his collection of items related to it is very large, which isn't that surprising, considering he was practically raised on it and even met his wife through a common love for the series), and the videos promise to be interesting. I can't send links through asks, but perhaps you could link his first video for interested viewers?

I would but I personally think watching a Let’s Play defeats the purpose of appreciating the games firsthand. :P

I will however post something that is related for people interested in playing the games.

Today is the Mother series’ 25th anniversary.

EarthBound (Mother 2) and Mother 3 are a couple of my favorite games and it’s one of the often forgotten franchises from Nintendo. While it isn’t quite as popular as Mario or Zelda, or even Metroid or StarFox, it still has one of the most dedicated and passionate fanbases of any video game franchise. So much so that when it was discovered that Mother 3 would probably never release in the states, the fans decided to translate the game so people could enjoy it. They did the same for Mother 1, titling it “EarthBound Zero”

These games are RPGs but unlike most where you’re in a fantasy world, they have a contemporary setting. It has ridiculous dialogue and some surprisingly touching and emotional scenes. While the battle system in these games may be a turn off to some since it’s so simple, others will appreciate it’s streamlined design.

There’s just something about these games that has made me feel such a feeling that I have really yet to feel in any other game. I’m not really sure what to call it. It’s not really nostalgia because I never had EarthBound as a kid, and I honestly never thought the games looked all that interesting, but after going through EarthBound and Mother 3 I felt so different playing them. It’s not really anything I can put into just a few words, they are a couple of greatest, weirdest, most emotional, interesting, and fun experiences I’ve ever had with a game.

If you haven’t played these games and you like RPGs or weird, quirky games, then definitely try these out. I have yet to play the first Mother since it was never released here and I played EarthBound first, but you can get a reproduction NES cartridge that has the game translated to english. I plan on ordering one sometime next week to play it.

Right now it’s very hard to get a true physical copy of EarthBound, since the retro collecting scene has sort of exploded in the past few years making it very expensive to own, but you can get it on the Wii U’s virtual console.

Mother 3 is the same story as Mother 1. It was never released in the US, but people have made reproduction cartridges for it. These are more expensive though. I’m assuming because reproduction GBA cartridges are a bit harder to make.

Or you can go the easy route and play them all on emulators, which I wouldn’t blame you, I did the same because I was so curious about the games back in 2009/2010.

Either way, if you choose to play them, enjoy the Mother franchise’s 25th anniversary!

Is Ness or Lucas confirmed for Smash yet?
