Shigesato Itoi, the director, designer, and original creator for the Mother game franchise, reported on Thursday that a "Mother re-release" effort is moving forward. However, he quickly added that it is not Mother 4.
The original Mother game was released for the Nintendo Famicom (Nintendo Entertainment System) in 1989, followed by its sequel, Earthbound (Mother 2: Gyiyg no Gyakushū) in 1994. Mother 3 was released for Gameboy Advance in Japan in 2006.
Itoi stated in 2006 that he has no plans to create Mother 4.
