PREPARE THE FEEDING TUBES, ALFRED! Wake me up in 2015. Link for source. A'IGHT. If you're sitting there thinking, "What in the world is Mother 4?" Prepare to be edumacated. Mother is a Japanese franchise of RPG style games, more commonly known to North America as EarthBound. Mother 1 was released in 1989 for the famicom and later in 2003 on the game boy advance.. In Japan.. Mother 2 was released in 1994 for the super famicom.. But wait.. It was also released in NA in 1995 on the SNES. Later re-released in Japan in 2003 for the game boy advance on the same cartridge as Mother 1. Almost 20 years later EarthBound was released on the Wii U virtual console in 2013, worrrrld wide. Mother 3 was released in 2006 for the game boy advance. In Japan. Zzz.. Regardless, there were fan translations for 1 and 3 so they're all available in English. Mother 4 is a fan game and not made by Nintendo. If you're interested you should get it when they release it incase there's a cease and desist.
Yeah haha. In Brawl you have to fight a statue of Porky. There's also a stage called new pork city, forgot about that one, where the ultimate chimera walks around it from mother 3 as well.
Wow! I had no idea... I guess I didn't pay close enough attention haha. I'll have to revisit them and find the connections.
@sanityscout Really? o: Ness, the protagonist of Mother 2, has been in all the Super Smash Bro games. c: Lucas, the protagonist of Mother 3, was in Smash Bros Brawl. There's also Magicant as a stage in Smash Bros 4 (the wii U and 3DS version) and that is from Mother 1 & 2!
I had not heard of the Mother games or EarthBound - I'll have to check it out. It's interesting that fans love it so much that they'll make their own version just to keep it going!
