Unboxing a Giant Mr. Saturn!
When we held our American MOTHER 2 stream event the other day Chewy was in a city a few hours away, but she was like, “I AM GOING TO BE AT THIS EVENT” and then somehow arrived at my house via magic.
Then we realized how cool it would be if Shigesato Itoi, who already knew the stream was going on, happened to see her taking part in it too, since they’ve met a few times and discussed MOTHER 2 and fans outside of Japan.
Unfortunately, it seems he didn’t see her on the stream, but she sent a pic of the stream to him recently anyway. And he just replied a few minutes ago on Twitter:
For reference, here’s what Chewy said:
Here’s a screenshot of when we played MOTHER 2 on the American version of justin.tv♪ Your event looked like fun too, boing☆ (English version of “bo~en“)
To this, Itoi replied with something like:
Oh, wow! Thanks, Lindsay.
It’s nothing much, but it’s just really cool that he’s responding to overseas fans and even actually has a connection with one!
And here’s a bonus pic that we took for fun:
