Mother 4? ‘Impossible’ Says Series Creator

Posted on April 30, 2013 AT 12:31pm

Responding to a Tweet sent from a fan asking about the possibility of Mother 4, series creator Shigesato Itoi responded, succinctly and simply, “Imposible.”

The Mother series is known as EarthBound in the west, and is perhaps better known for its very loyal, very vocal fanbase. Said fanbase has gone to such length to get more of that Mother goodness they fan-translated Mother 3—the direct sequel to SNES’s EarthBound—and even offered their script to Nintendo for free.

Nintendo did announce during their last Direct presentation that EarthBound would be released on the Wii U virtual console, marking the first official release of EarthBound in North America outside of its original SNES debut.
