I never grew up playing the Mother series, but after hearing about it, I recently started playing all of the games a few months ago. And I never thought that playing through them would make me laugh, smile, and cry so much! I felt like a child again growing up in this world learning about love and friendship. Honestly, it would be great if Mother 3 gets localized because more people would be able to experience it! Besides, its whole story and characters have a special place in our hearts just like its own in Earthbound Beginnings and Earthbound. Words cannot describe my undying love for a game franchise that I just started to play.

EarthBound is an amazing game. Every ounce of it is full of heart. Not only is the game itself amazing though, but so is what has been able to happen because of it. The community that has developed around this game and series is fantastic, and is capable of so many amazing things, as seen with Camp Fangamer earlier this summer. EarthBound is extremely important to me on a personal level primarily because of the people it has allowed me to meet. Without EarthBound, it's likely I wouldn't be friends with anyone I know online, many of whom have become very important to me. EarthBound brings people together in a way no other game can, and that alone is worth the world to me.

Earthbound was my first RPG, unlike anything I'd ever experienced. It was very different and out there for me as an 8-year-old, but it kept me intrigued in the world it was presenting. And the writing was absolutely witty and hilarious throughout the game, beginning to end. I intend to get Earthbound Beginnings and would be more than happy to buy Mother 3 if it was released outside of Japan.

Earthbound and the entire MOTHER franchise has been one of my favorite franchises ever since one of my close friends showed it to me, this series is one of the best written in terms of coding and dialogue that I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing!

EarthBound was one of the first video games I took a deep interest in due to its unique aesthetic, iconic music, and the general quirkiness of the game. It stood out to me as an RPG that was simple, yet elegant in its presentation. Next to Pokemon, this was my favorite RPG growing up and after almost 10 years I can still pick it up and play it. EarthBound was a masterpiece of the SNES that went mostly unnoticed for years. Now, with the series becoming more prominent with the release of EarthBound and EarthBound Beginnings on the VC, more people have the experience to enjoy this game without having to suffice for an emulator or scrounge for a cartridge. Years ago, as an EarthBound fan, it was unimaginable for these games to be rereleased to the English speaking public. Its popularity has been booming over the last few months and reinforces the fact that this game was a forgotten gem in the US. If Mother 3 was released, it would no doubt become a popular title for long time fans like myself and for new players to experience the magic that these games contain.

It took me a long time to actually get into Earthbound, the only thing I regret is not playing it sooner! This game is a wonderful experience and overall a fantastic game. my love for it is enormous.

What’s MOTHER?

The MOTHER games are a series of RPGs directed by Shigesato Itoi, a Japanese writer / entrepreneur.

MOTHER (NES, 1989)

Recently released outside Japan on the Wii U as EarthBound Beginnings, it surpassed Splatoon to become the most- downloaded eShop title in June 2015.

MOTHER 2 (SNES, 1994)

Released in America as EarthBound in 1995. It sold poorly but became a cult classic.

MOTHER 3 (GBA, 2006)

Never formally localized, so the fans created their own version. Next year is the game’s 10 year anniversary.
