Famitsu Wave DVD (Sep. 2003)

Famitsu Wave is a magazine that comes with a DVD each issue. This particular issue had a short documentary-type thing of the MOTHER 1+2 event in 2003. Very awesome stuff.

Super Famicom Perfect Video '92-'93

This video contains a bunch of WEIRD stuff about current games and upcoming games. I'm talking crazy. It also includes an interview with Itoi and video of a beta version of MOTHER 2. It looks and sounds so strange!

Ordering from Japanese Sites

I've included links to places like Amazon Japan and Yahoo! Auctions Japan (YAJ for short), but ordering things from these places can be kind of tricky.

Amazon Japan: Ordering from Amazon Japan isn't too bad, but you might be scared by all the Japanese text at first. But fear not! On most Amazon Japan pages is a link you can click that will turn a lot of the site's text into English for you. The other thing you'll need to know is that 1. Amazon Japan can't and won't ship games outside of Japan and 2. if you're ordering a used item, not all sellers will ship internationally. But otherwise Amazon Japan is a cinch to order from.

Yahoo! Auctions Japan: This is an absolute treasure trove of MOTHER merchandise. Sadly, it's not very convenient to use if you're not in Japan. Most sellers won't ship outside of Japan and will probably be freaked out if you ask them a question in English. If you're not in Japan and don't know Japanese, then you'll need to use a service like Celga that will bid on stuff for you and then ship you the stuff once they receive it.
