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 Japanes...Read More »

He also says he wasn’t aware of possible music rights issues: […]They’re taking the original game and putting it on Wii U. If that’s the case, then hooray 😀 If you’ll remember, Reid and the Starmen.Net staff ...Read More »

You can see the press release here. Here’s what it says for the EarthBound part, for reference: The phrasing of the headline there made me laugh out loud – good ...Read More »

The other day Kotaku posted an article about the most awesome dog companions in video games. Nintendo posted about this article on its Facebook account and mentioned Mother 3 by name: You can see the Facebook post here. As you can imagine, many of the replies are from people surprised that Nintendo of America is mentioning MOTHER 3 at all: NoA, can we have more Mother 3 info, like that game itsel...Read More »

The other day Manny sent me this e-mail, which has an e-mail inside of it too: A few days back, I sent NOA a message regarding Earthbound. “For the Mother series, released in Japan, Why was Mother 2 renamed Earthbound in America? Why not Mother 2 or just Mother? What is significant about the name Earthbound?” This is their response, “Hello, Thank you for taking the time to cont...Read More »

I don’t know if I’ve shared this before, but if you want a real blast from the past, here’s the official MOTHER 2 page on Nintendo’s Japanese site: MOTHER 2: Gyiyg Strikes Back I don’t even think Nintendo of America has its old original pages up anymore, so I don’t know what the EarthBound pages/site they had would’ve looked like. Oh well. ...Read More »

In a recent Kotaku interview, Satoru Iwata is asked about MOTHER 3 and mentions how he and Itoi are aware of the big Western fanbase for the series. Check it out here: Nintendo Chief: Mario Is Part Of Gamers’ DNA Still no real response on the subject though.

I often get e-mails from people who’ve e-mailed Nintendo asking about EarthBound/MOTHER stuff, so I figure it’s about time to post something about it 😛 Alexander e-mailed me the other day with this: Hi EarthBound Central! I just recently asked the Nintendo Support team if Mother or Earthbound was going to be released at VC, and I pointed out that no other company has been sued for u...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 »
