It’s the second Sunday in May, which means Mother’s Day is celebrated in many countries around the world (although in the UK it’s in March).This year we celebrate Mother’s Day in a very special way and look back fondly on a special mother whom Nintendo fans around the world are uniting in their adoration – Shigesato Itoi’s Mother series.
Zion Grassl, the lovely guy and one of our resident senior video producers, has been crafting this video for weeks—the centerpiece of our Mother’s Day celebration—recruiting the best from the video game fandom and creator space Characters, tributes and tributes to EarthBound games: EarthBound Beginnings, EarthBound and MOTHER 3.
In these conversations, Zion discusses the idiosyncratic nature of this unique trilogy with some of the interviewees you may know. Yes, you’ll see some familiar faces, hear some familiar voices, and even hear the voice of a specific indie game developer whose work was heavily influenced by the MOTHER series. yes, That Indie game developer!
We hope you enjoy the video above. It’s a (relatively) long watch – perfect for Sunday wear – and we’re very proud of it. Happy Mothers’ Day!
