Fans take Mother into their own hands
Ambitious EarthBound fans have gotten sick of waiting for Nintendo to announce a new chapter in the series, and have taken it upon themselves to make their own sequel, boldly named Mother 4.
Like in the earlier games, the story follows “a group of teenagers and their road trip across a rose-tinted America.”, and you can catch a first glimpse of the game in the reveal trailer.
- Mother 4 is a fan project run entirely by independent developers
- No connection with Nintendo or HAL Laboratory
- Shigesato Itoi has said he has no plans for a sequel
- Mother is known as EarthBound outside Japan
