Eating at EarthBound Shops #3
In a recent interview with Kotaku, Reggie Fils-Aime discussed the EarthBound series – and MOTHER 3 – a little bit more! Here are key snippets from it: Fils-Aime, in reference to MOTHER 3: “Look, again, I think this is an example that demonstrates we’re constantly listening. We’re hearing what the fans say. And we thought it was great to bring back the very first Mother, Eart...Read More »
In a recent interview with GameSpot, Reggie chatted about all sorts of E3-related topics, including the release of EarthBound Beginnings. Check it out here: Basically, he says: Nintendo is aware of the fans of the series Nintendo thought making the game immediately available after the announcement was a great way to service those fans He has nothing more to announce for the series for now The sk...Read More »
Nintendo’s digital E3 event is today, and it kicked off with a joke about Reggie and fans wanting a MOTHER 3 translation: The joke’s gotten a lot of mixed reactions from fans, it’s fascinating to watch! I’m still just amazed that the game was mentioned in any way 😯 ...Read More »
This is old news by now, but ShirowWolf sent me this e-mail back around the time the EarthBound Bash was happening so I didn’t get to it until now: Hi, Tomato- So here we have Reggie Fils-Aime basically admitting that Nintendo of America doesn’t listen to fan petitions and campaigns, and they ‘don’t effect what [Nintendo]’ does. Now, this isn’t surprising at all...Read More »
Good ol’ Jose Otero, now at IGN, very recently talked to Reggie Fils-Aime about EarthBound and MOTHER 3 – check out the article here!

Still, hopefully now that EarthBound has some momentum, maybe a rele...Read More »

Murcielo sent this in the other day, it’s a rant about Nintendo and EarthBound-related stuff. I started my rant at 4:30am last night and it’s been talked about for so long, but I’m certain that I am not alone when it comes to this. It was about Nintendo’s short attention span. It might not be real news but I’d thought I’d share. His rant is here, but it’s ...Read More »
The awesomely talented Elf Kitty (example of awesomeness) met Reggie at a Nintendo company picnic today: She says this: This was at the Nintendo company picnic today. After the photo I said “So can I ask you about Mother 3 now?!”. He just laughed and said “You can ask, but it doesn’t mean that I’ll answer anything!” It was pretty funny 🙂 ...Read More »
Note: this is kind of a side-update to this post from a few days ago. Chris Kohler from Wired alway has EarthBound fans’ backs, so it’s cool that he and a few other media folks keeps asking Reggie about the series for us. Because, honestly, we peons can’t ask him these things ourselves. Of course, Reggie always seems to give his patent mixture of politician talk and corporate tal...Read More »
I didn’t dare post this yesterday, because posting any news on April Fools will meet with “uhh is this real”? Which is why I was iffy about the original news myself, but here it is now: In an interview with MTV Multiplayer, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie talks about MOTHER 3, this time with actual substance. A quick quote: I’m a big “Mother” fan. I have to s...Read More »
