Mother 4, the long-awaited fan-made sequel to Mother 3, will be rebranding after several high profile DMCA takedowns of other fan games.
For years now, fans have wanted Shigesato Itoi to make a new Mother game. It doesn’t sound like it will happen. There’s a reason for that.
Here is a new trailer for Mother 4, the upcoming fan sequel to the much-beloved Mother trilogy that, incredibly, looks worthy of the name. The folks behind the game say it'll be out this summer. Think it'll live up to expectations?
Since Nintendo won't make any more Mother/Earthbound games, it's up to fans to carry the load. And while Mother 4 is looking every bit the faithful entry in the series, it's sadly been delayed into 2015. To soften the blow, though, there are new screenshots!
The fanmade Mother 4 project now has a release window (winter 2014) and a trailer (above). It's stunning.
For years, players have been begging Earthbound (aka Mother in Japan) creator Shigesato Itoi for a new game. He's listening and has a definite answer: Not gonna happen.
The Mother series, known in the West as Earthbound, are some of the best games to ever grace a Game Boy. They're so good, in fact, that Nintendo of America wants nothing to do with them.
