Mother's Shigesato Itoi Hints at Something for Beloved RPG Series

"Earthbound" fans, start speculating!

The folks over at fan site Earthbound Central recently hopped on a couple of juicy tweets by Shigesato Itoi, one of the minds behind the beloved Mother series. Itoi is quick to point out that he isn't referring to a new game, but it does appear fans of the originals may have something to look forward to...

 

The first tweet

 

Since it's now okay to blurt this out, here goes: the "MOTHER republication" thing I mentioned briefly before is making progress.

 

The second

 

It's not "(MOTHER) 4", though! This has to do with making "MOTHER" playable. I can't give out any details just yet, but I do at least need to say that it isn't 4.

 

Ok, so Itoi isn't referring to Mother 4, but it's good to know there's something in the pipes. As Earthbound Central points out, their use of "playable" in the translation refers to the games being old and out of print, not their quality.

 

What would you like to see from the "MOTHER republication" Itoi mentioned?
