The other day I posted about how Shigesato Itoi thanked overseas fans in English on the MOTHER 2 Miiverse. Fans have responded with hundreds of messages of gratitude, so I thought it would be nice to share a video of them for folks who don’t have Wii Us: I gotta say, when they announced that Itoi would have his own Miiverse community and that he’d post stuff sometimes, I never, ever i...Read More »

The MOTHER 2 Revival Festival is now over in Japan, and MOTHER 2 is no longer available on the Japanese Wii U Virtual Console. Although I’m sure it’ll be back soon enough at its normal price. Anyway, because of this, Itoi started posting some messages about the festival coming to a close. For lunch I had scallop porridge. I just had a Japanese rice cracker. People can tell when yo...Read More »

On the MOTHER 2 Miiverse, Shigesato Itoi posted the following message in English: Dear Earthbound/MOTHER2 fans outside of Japan : Thank you for all the requests. They made me very happy. Now with the re-launch, I am looking forward to meet new friends. Potential!! He’s also made a few more Miiverse posts talking about what he’s eaten and marking the end of the Revival Festival. I̵...Read More »

EarthBound was announced for the Wii U Virtual Console outside of Japan yesterday, and there was much rejoicing! I’ve gotten a lot of tweets, e-mails, messages, and questions elsewhere that I thought might be good to share here, so I’ll post a few of them today and maybe some more later on when I have more time. So let’s get to it! EarthBound Prices A lot of people have been aski...Read More »

After a few weeks of silence, Shigesato Itoi made a couple new posts on the Wii U’s MOTHER 2 Miiverse today: Just popping in to take a peek. I just finished eating lunch. Stewed Hamburg steak. The Revival Festival is going to end soon. But the game will continue on. Forever. #itoiposts td { padding:5px; } #itoiposts tr:nth-child(2n) { background:#E0E0FF; } The MOTHER 2 Revival...Read More »

While browsing around on my Japanese Wii U I noticed there was a section that listed how players rated MOTHER 2 in different ways. So here’s a look! First is just the five-star rating system for the game. As you can see, players have given MOTHER 2 a score of 4.5 stars: Next are some poll questions: Who do you think this title appeals to? 77%: Everyone 23%: Gamers What kind of play style...Read More »

Itoi’s live MOTHER 2 stream was a few days ago, and I’ve been very slowly trying to go through the entire thing and list stuff of interest. Except it’s hard to find time, so I’ve been listening to it in the background while doing other stuff. Here’s what I’ve jotted down on my horribly-handwritten notes, but if I’ve forgotten anything, please let me know i...Read More »

After Itoi’s own MOTHER 2 stream the other day, he was silent on Miiverse for a good three days or so. He’s started posting some more, but not a lot. Here’s his latest stuff: (Note: This was posted in the MOTHER 2 community rather than Itoi’s own community) Just dropping by the “MOTHER 2 Community”. Yahoo! Long time, no see! Cherry blossoms are blooming...Read More »

So it’s been over a week since MOTHER 2 was released on the Wii U Virtual Console. And although we haven’t gone through all of the game yet, it’s looking like no changes were made to the game at all. One of the big questions during the stream was, “What does this mean?” Does this spell good news or bad news for a release outside of Japan? Itoi is very aware of the int...Read More »

When we held our American MOTHER 2 stream event the other day Chewy was in a city a few hours away, but she was like, “I AM GOING TO BE AT THIS EVENT” and then somehow arrived at my house via magic. Then we realized how cool it would be if Shigesato Itoi, who already knew the stream was going on, happened to see her taking part in it too, since they’ve met a few times and discuss...Read More »
