Today is the 10th anniversary of the MOTHER 3 fan translation. To commemorate, Mato wrote a huge article documenting the cycle of hope, hype, and disappointment that surrounds the demand for an official MOTHER 3 translation from Nintendo. Some fans have been on this rollercoaster ride for 23 years and counting. For older fans, this article is a strange, funny, and heartrending trip down memory la...Read More »

A bunch of EarthBound things have happened lately, so here’s a quick look at some of them! Lasgna Cat is back, and one of the short episodes featured some MOTHER 3 stuff: One of those super-rare MOTHER 2 jackets went up for auction in Japan. The starting bid of $2000 scared everyone away, though, so it went without any bids at all. A semi-rare EarthBound ruler hit eBay and eventually sold...Read More »

A reader named Ed sent me some scans of MOTHER series articles from a Korean gaming magazine called “Game Champ”. I don’t speak or read Korean, but it’s still cool to see all of this. It looks like they even gave MOTHER 2 a pretty good review score! #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align...Read More »

Last year, during the special MOTHER 2 event I assume, Nintendo Dream interviews Shigesato Itoi about a number of different topics, including MOTHER 3, the Nintendo 64 version of the game, fans outside of Japan, MOTHER 4, and more. Nintendo Dream: I see. Even though Mother 3 hasn’t been released overseas yet, they know about Lucas from SSB… Shigesato Itoi: But recently when I heard from foreig...Read More »

Back in 1999, a preview version of the N64 MOTHER 3 was playable at Nintendo’s Spaceworld event. Staffers who worked the booth were given special DCMC shirts, they’re so rare that even 15 years later it’s hard to find any good, concrete info about them. Even pictures are hard to come by! Luckily, one appeared on Yahoo Auctions Japan the other day, and it wound up selling for the ...Read More »

For the past year or so I’ve heard a number of different rumors and stories that someone has acquired a prototype of the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3. I’ve never put much faith in it because it’s never accompanied with pictures or other evidence. Here’s an interesting e-mail from a reader, though: Hello, I was looking at earthbound 64 info because.. eh why not? anyways, ...Read More »

A few years back, OKeijiDragon started working on a documentary video series about big-name video games that wound up canceled. The first video was to be about MOTHER 3 (particularly the Nintendo 64 version)… and the 2012 work-in-progress version of the video is now available for all to see! The video is really information-dense and uses on-screen text rather than a narrator, so it’s ...Read More »

Here’s something I’ve never seen before – EarthBound mentioned in the employee sales binder thing that listed games available during the holiday season of 1995: It’s not much, but EarthBound’s mentioned in there and it uses a sketched version of that swooshy Earth logo – something I’ve never seen before. And come to think of it, I think PoeTrader and I mi...Read More »

A few weeks back, an old interview between Shigesato Itoi and Shigeru Miyamoto from 1999 was translated and posted on Nintendo World Report. Part of the interview covers the topic of MOTHER 3 for the Nintendo 64 and is worth checking out!! Here’s a quick example blurb from Miyamoto, see the article for the full thing: I really hope we get it into a playable state by winter. I look forward to...Read More »

It’s that time again! Lots of mini-updates! Check ’em out! Memories of Deleted Saves Luke Records says: Hello, I just read your anti-piracy Earthbound article and had flashbacks. As a child, my brothers and I played this game constantly. We worked our way to the last battle twice, but both times all of our saves were deleted. We had trouble winning the last battle, and it was usual...Read More »
