Shigesato Itoi Gets His Vague on About Mother

Earthbound fans speculate over translated tweets from Mother series designer Shigesato Itoi.

Shigesato Itoi is the designer for the Mother series, a trilogy of RPGs that has only seen its second iteration, retitled to Earthbound, released outside of Japan. He has been causing a bit of a stir amongst the fanbase of the series by posting some extremely vague statements regarding the series.

Earthbound Central, an English fansite for the series, translated his tweets: “Since it’s now okay to blurt this out, here goes: the ‘MOTHER republication’ thing I mentioned briefly before is making progress. It’s not (MOTHER) 4, though! This has to do with making ‘MOTHER’ playable. I can’t give out any details yet, but I do at least need to say that it isn’t 4.”

“PK never leaving Japan!”

Speculation has begun and it’s most likely regarding rerelease of the games a different platform. However, nothing is certain, especially with how foggy his tweets are. I’d personally love to see the Mother series finally get released over here in full, either as a virtual console release or as a remake.
