Unboxing a Giant Mr. Saturn!
In MOTHER 3, you can heal your party by using hot springs. Sometimes, rarely, an old man will show up in a hot spring. He doesn’t do anything special, in fact he almost acts like he belongs there and that nothing unusual is happening.
Even rarer is a woman bather who’s confused when you talk to her. In Japan (and most elsewhere) it’s common for hot springs to be separated into a male and female area, but sometimes there are mixed gender hot springs. That’s what the lady references when she says her line of, “Mixed gender bathing?”
You can see these hot spring rarities in this video here posted by EblotheHedgehog:
As you can see, when you’re high on mushrooms, the old man and the old lady have different sprites. I thought that was pretty funny, and the choice of new sprites was pretty good too 😀
