It is the second Sunday in May, which means Mother’s Day in many countries around the world (though not in the UK, where Mother’s Sunday falls in March). This year we are celebrating Mother’s Day in a very special way and we are happy to look back at one particular mother that Nintendo fans around the world adore united – Shigesato Itoi MOTHER series.
Zion Grassl, a lovely person and one of our regular senior video producers, has been lovingly making this video for weeks – the centerpiece of our Mother’s Day celebration – attracting lights from across fans and video game creators to honor and welcome EarthBound games: EarthBound Beginnings, EarthBound and MOTHER 3.
In these conversations, Zion explores the special nature of this unique trilogy with some interlocutors you are likely to recognize. Yes, you will see some famous faces, hear some famous voices, and even hear from one particular indie game developer whose work has been heavily influenced by the MOTHER series. That, that indie game developer!
We hope you enjoy the video above. It’s a (relatively) long watch – perfect for Sunday – and we’re very proud of it. Happy Mother’s Day!
