MOTHER 3’s 7th Anniversary
Pitchfork did some really in-depth looks at MOTHER 1 and MOTHER 2 in the past (see here and here) and now the detailed analysis of MOTHER 3 is out! Check it out here! I always really enjoy the amount of thought and research Pitchfork puts into these analyses. Thanks for doing them! ...Read More »
Things have been so crazy lately that I forgot to mention this last month, but the MOTHER 3 fan translation got a page of coverage in New York Magazine recently! You can see an online version with slightly different formatting here, too! A couple details seem to be a little off – the documentary coming out next year is more focused on EarthBound than MOTHER 3, for example, but in all itR...Read More »
I got a message on Twitter from an EarthBound fan named Adam the other day: @ClydeMandelin I posted a link to the Mother 3 translation page on Miiverse, and got a warning that it was related to "criminal activity". — Adam L. Welsh (@AwelCruiz) April 10, 2015 And he then sent some photos of the messages and warnings involved: Apparently this isn’t just a MOTHER 3-only thi...Read More »
Another big piece of news that’s a few days old now is that Lucas was announced as a DLC character for the new Super Smash Bros. games! I’m excited for this not just because of MOTHER 3 and all the stuff surrounding it, but because it means there’s a chance there’ll be a Lucas Amiibo at some point. Hopefully. Right? At the very least, Lucas is getting treated better finall...Read More »
A little while ago, The Completionist and pals went through the MOTHER 3 translation for the first time and then made a thorough video about the game and their experience. Check it out! After the video went up, my wife Poe and I had an hour-long chat with them about the translation project, EarthBound 64, and more. You can check that out here: It was a lot of fun and I hope we’ll get to co...Read More »
PiggyColonel recently created a Porky-themed LEGO set and posted it on the official LEGO site for fans to vote on: I have some news relating to MOTHER 3 fan stuff…Sorta. Waaaaay back in the day of almost 2 years ago, I posted some stuff about MOTHER 3 LEGO creations. Almost 2 years later, I finally finished the LEGO version of Porky. Now that this is done, I have an idea that I’d lik...Read More »
KamiWasa posted this video the other day – it’s a 3D version of the old hot spring guy from MOTHER 3! I’m always amazed at how well MOTHER series stuff looks in 3D like this. I guess the simple art style lends itself to it or something. ...Read More »
Last year I uploaded some custom-made tools that would let fans translate MOTHER 3 into other languages. Around the same time, I also suggested that fans could try their hand at rewriting the existing English translation if they felt up to it. Immediately, crabbyRhys took up this task and worked hard at it for many months. At last, the rewritten script is complete and available as a patch –...Read More »
After a few weeks away I’m back and have a huge pile of things I need to update about 😯 First, though, is a set of videos published on Double Fine’s YouTube account about each of the games in the MOTHER series: “Programmer on Costume Quest 2 and Mother superfan Ben Burbank shows off selected scenes from the entire trilogy and explains the complicated history of this beloved cu...Read More »
Miles V. has been working on an EarthBound fan music album called “Moonsidian” for a while now – in fact, I briefly covered it back in 2010. It’s nearing a release now, so here’s a quick preview of a few of the tracks! And here’s a preview of one of the tracks, called “Instinct of the West”. Try to guess what song it’s based off of within the ...Read More »
- Person: What a neat idea!
- The World Is Square: Cool! I’ll be sure to join in the next live stream.
- Fred: YEAH! 😀
- Anonymous: I don’t think Pitchfork’s writting was obnoxious in any way. It’s just his opinion, anyway.
- Mato: MightyYT: I always love your work, so again, amazing job on this! Off the top of my head, I don’t know the significance of everything...
