Mother franchise to be discontinued :(

RPGamer reports that producer/creator Shigesato Itoi does not plan on creating a Mother 4…

I’m not suprised. It seemed like Mother3 was released just to “get it out of the way”, in a sense. Considering how much drama there was around M3’s release, i doubt anyone wants to go through that again for M4.

If they would just translate and release Mother 3 (and possibly Mother 1+2 as well), I’d be perfectly content.

I think he announced that some time ago.

I don’t see why people are making such a fuss about the franchise being discontinued. It can hardly be called a franchise :P.

Call it a trilogy. [STRIKE]Like The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books.[/STRIKE]

Awww. I kinda hoped for a 3d Mother one of these days. Oh well, I’ll just play through Earthbound again. :frowning:

Well, let’s hope they will translate at least Mother 3. It could trigger apocalypse after all these years of waiting. The franchise proves to be just like the game: wacky and hard

Young, try to get Poo’s Sword of Kings. The music in the Stonehenge dungeon is enough to make you go crazy after two hours straight.

Those worrying about an M3 translation, if it doesn’t happen, you always have this:
That is if you’re able to dump your own roms after importing it.

How much does an import copy of Mother 3 cost?

<A HREF=“”>Yes Asia, $40.99</A>
<A HREF=“”>Play Asia, $48.90</A>
<A HREF=“”>NCSX, $49.00</A>
<A HREF=“”>Lik-Sang, $49.90</A>

I’m sure there are other places, too, but these are the ones I usually hit.
