Different EarthBound Clay Models
Yesterday was Mother’s Day, and to commemorate it Shigesato Itoi tweeted something MOTHER-related: The first town in MOTHER 2 is “Onet”, but the first town in MOTHER is called, yes, “Mothersday”. It’s nothing much, but I thought I’d share it anyway. I’m more surprised at his misspellings than anything, but it’s somewhat common for Japanese crea...Read More »
Yesterday, for some reason, Shigesato Itoi started doing an advice column sort of thing on his Twitter for a short time. You know, something like where people would say, “My dog is hungry. What should I do?” and then he’d give a reply, oftentimes a silly one. Well, a couple people happened to ask MOTHER-related questions, so here they are! QUESTION: Mr. Itoi, I love the MOTHER ...Read More »
Today marks seven years since MOTHER 3 was released… Man, I say it every year, but it’s crazy how it’s already been this long It feels like just yesterday we were all jumping up and down with excitement every time Itoi updated the MOTHER 3 preview site. I actually would’ve completely forgotten about this year’s anniversary if it hadn’t been for this Japanese tw...Read More »
Last month Shigesato Itoi started to occasionally post messages on Twitter about some sort of MOTHER revival or MOTHER republication, and in one of his first messages he said: the “MOTHER republication” thing I mentioned briefly before The thing is, no one knew what the heck he was talking about. For pretty much everyone, including me, this was completely new news! I finally tracked down what ...Read More »
Last year there were a few Twitter accounts that went through the story of EarthBound as if Ness was actually doing his adventure in real-time and posting about it online. These kinds of things are kind of common now, but I didn’t expect to see one done from multiple characters’ points of view all at the same time! That’s exactly what Skye is doing. You can follow the Chosen Fou...Read More »
The other day, I posted about how Shigesato Itoi recently joined Twitter. I was reading through a lot of comments to him just now and came across this, which I’ve translated into English: aoki818 @itoi_shigesato It’s been a really long time, Mr. Itoi. This is Aoki, I was on the staff of the old Mother 3 (the one that wasn’t released). I heard you joined Twitter, so I thought I...Read More »
Despite being in his 60s and admittedly only able to use computers for basic things like word processing, EarthBound creator Shigesato Itoi now has a Twitter account. Of course, everything he types is in Japanese, so unless you’re a really diehard fan his posts are probably meaningless to most fans outside of Japan. I doubt he’ll talk about the MOTHER series much, if ever, since he alm...Read More »
