Speaking on how dedicated the fanbase of the Mother franchise is… they’ve even been in the process of making an unofficial entry to the series.
It’s slated to be released Winter this year and from what I can tell from the trailer, it looks to be almost as engaging as the official entries.
I know some will never consider playing this since Itoi himself said Mother 3 would be the last one, but then again in this interview it suggests that he may enjoy someone else making a Mother game. It’s not directly said but it seems like he wouldn’t mind.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to this regardless and will definitely be talking about it in a vlog when it comes out.
