Just downloaded Mother 3+English patch and about to dig in and noticed this was a thing.
>>
It has a chance, but we won't see until it comes out.

It has a lot better chance ever since Chase "left".

it has no chance

itoi put his heart and soul into those games, without him they'll just be "JRPG with a sense or humor" like half the ones on the market.

Like 90% of the people who watched that trailer said the opposite.

As far as what I think on it I really, really have to wait and see. I think they're putting a lot into it and they took out the fanfic tier people from being in charge.

Sorry. I really wasn't trying to shitpost. I just put "Mother 4" into google images and that came up. I honestly don't know anything about it outside of the fact that it's in development and is coming out at the end of the year.

>>253832045

Now, I'm pretty neutral on this fan game, my only complain is that I think they really should drop the Mother 4 title and adopt a subtitle, OR put a biiiig "THE FAN GAME" subtitle after Mother 4 because a lot of people are going to be confused. I know I was when I first saw a post here on /v/ with "Mother 4", my heart almost came out of my chest, then when I finally saw "fan game"..... yeah, I kind fo resent this game because of that fake hype moment.
However, I'm not gonna judge the game until it comes out.

HOWEVER, the game itself IS fanfiction. It's going to be fans doing fiction on an already existing IP, that is fanfiction in every way you look at it.
>>
Even if it didn't turn out to be an absolute piece of crap, how could it be do anything different than what has already been done in the series? It looks like it's all driven by nostalgia and fan wankery instead of trying to really understand what made previous games in the series good. This is why most fan projects are doomed to fail when they're not C&D'd. You're better off just playing the official games instead of some fan-made nonsense.
>>
I still need to play 3. The problem is that there's a good chance it would be like Itoi-lite. It might look like his game. Has a bit of his writing. But there will always be something in the back of your head that feels something is off. And that's just the best case.

I don't think he's the only one. Some people just don't like the type of game.

I would like to know why becuase I thought it was extremely good. It's not excessively grindy, it has some humor and charm, the musical battle system is pretty fun especially with the crazy timed music later in the game, and the story is pretty emotional.
>>
>calling it mother 4 when you're not affiliated with the company
Pretentious and disrespectful.
>>
Wait, Nintendo made a Mother 4? Great, I can't wait to see how the story continues.

That is preciesely why I hate the fact that the developers called the game Mother 4. It's confusing, and disrespectful. They have some serious nerve to claim that their game is part of the main series.
>>
>>253832537
Nobody's confused, man. They have it in the first ten seconds of the trailer and it's in the FAQ in big letters.
>>253832607
I get the exact opposite impression from Pastel on starmen.net, he's always like "no references" and shit, and talks at length about why certain things would be bad to include and the things he does talk about including sound really good.

Like he wouldn't let anybody give PSI ideas because of how every PSI fits a niche and is balanced out and additional offensive PSI just doing "reasonable damage" would be stupid and boring to deal with.

I think the best thing they can do is be self aware and instead of doing Itoi's Japanese view on American culture do an American view on Japanese culture thing, which is what it looks like based on Meryl and Leo's designs.

What do if it turns out to be better than the official games?

I thought Itoi said fans should make Mother 4?
>>
>>253833189
Honestly, how hard would it be to just called it Rock Candy Adventures or something as an homage. I can think of a hundred names related to Mother that would be better than calling it Mother 4, implying an official sequel.

I don't care, if they love Mother as much as they claim they'd change it.

Or don't call it Mother 4 at least. Call it Mother Tribute.

ITOI: I’m not going to release a MOTHER 4; MOTHER is over now.

ITOI: The feeling of, “I want a MOTHER 4 to be released!” is inside me, too. Even if it’s not something I need to do, I still feel that way. Still, there isn’t someone for me to watch over from afar anymore. If there were a fourth game, I’d want to be the player.

The original Director, Produce, Lead Writer, etc. for Mother 4. The main protagonist use to be called Chase, it was clearly a self-inserted character.
The news post about him leaving isn't exactly true
>>
>>253833189
They don't claim that anywhere. The only reason it's called that is because like a month after the Mother 3 translation came out there were a fucking billion Mother 4 fan games in the fan forum of Starmen.net and this game was one of them. it's the only one that's changed and developed though.

>>253832964
The guy who made the first thread. It was literally nothing but "Hehe the game is gonna be really good just wait it'll be better than earthbound :))" then his team kicked him out for being a self inserting chucklefuck.

>>253833552
He's not listed on the staff page, some new guy even newer than the guy that replaced Chase is doing all the writing and game design, and apparently cleaned everything up to high heaven, and he never posts in the forum.

Even if he still talks to them and makes a sprite here and there, he's not on the team. He obviously has no sway anymore, that's enough for me.

>>
>>253833190
>Nobody's confused, man.

I was at first. And many people who won't bother to check out the trailer and just see "Mother 4" casually will believe there's a Mother 4 out. I really think it's not a good idea, but whatever, I know I will be called a hater or stuff. I'm not against this fan game being made, but I think the title should be something else.

>>253833532

uh.... and? Itoi also said Mother 4 could be a theatre play, Animal Crossing or even the lives of all the people who played the Mother series.
I think the whole "I'd want to be the player" is more his subtle way of saying "I'm done developing games for now, it's too stressful", he always complained about how stressful it was to develop games, even though he enjoyed the experience.
He also didn't say "hey, fans, make a game".
But anyway, I don't think Itoi would give a fuck about this fangame (now, Nintendo the company, not so sure), but that's not the point, the point is that Itoi says many things, the whole "but he said he wants to be the player for Mother 4" doesn't serve as an excuse to call a fan game "mother 4".

disclaimer: just in case, and again, because I know the devs/friends of the devs of Mother 4 fan game browse /v/, and some other apologists always jump defending them, I'm NOT against this fan game being made, I simply don't like the title. And I have my reasons as I explained, but whatever, they won't change the name it seems.

Last trailer I saw makes me feel the game has promise.

I'm going to, my entire point was that I think it's really pretentious and kind of backwardly against the idea of Mother. Itoi makes Mother what it is. I don't think that anyone other than a close writer/creator to Mother could make a true sequel.
>>
>>253833190
>I think the best thing they can do is be self aware and instead of doing Itoi's Japanese view on American culture do an American view on Japanese culture thing, which is what it looks like based on Meryl and Leo's designs.

That's a good idea, but that's just even more of a reason not to call it Mother 4. Mother is a Japanese series full of American pop cultures references from a Japanese perspective.

Even then, the series still draws heavily from Itoi's own life experiences. Without him it's impossible to completely capture the spirit of the series.
>>
>>253835156
This is how I feel. When I read what the director says on Starmen.net it has even more potential. Grant Kirkhope even tweeted about the game, apparently he's making music for it.

Earthbound was written entirely by a different guy. Most of Mother 2's text is heavily culturally contexted, so the writing in Earthbound is almost entirely original. Take that how you will.

Don't worry, the difference between Star Wars and Mother is that Mother ended where it should and I'm just going to enjoy Mother 4 as it's own thing, regardless, George Lucas milked Star Wars as much as he could, and dumped the Prequels because money.

>>253835494
You don't have to play Mother 1 but it has a lot of shared themes with the other games and especially 2/Earthbound.
>>
>>253835494
It's a JRPG with a whimsical yet dark story. The combat is similar to any other JRPG but it has a rhythmic element to it and wacky abilities and stuff. Also rolling health is really nice. You don't have to play Mother 2 or 3 before it but it might help you get some references/characters.
>>
>>253835494
It is a turn based RPG series widely regarded for having a lot of charm to it. While id say Earthbound is a fun ride I wouldn't consider it to be that fun of a game, a lot of it feels pretty dated, especially the inventory system. The same applies to mother except it is more dated. Mother 3 on the other hand feels a lot more polished from a gameplay standpoint. The same applies to Mother, except All are pretty good but Earthbound and Mother 1 kind of suffer from a gameplay standpoint where as Mother 3 doesn't
>>
>>253835206

Look at it this way: not everybody is a die hard Mother fan, maybe some people will look at OP's pic, not bother entering the thread/watching the trailer, and they will believe there's a Mother 4 coming out, because there's no indication anywhere in OP's post that it is a fan game. I know it's outdated picture, but most of the Mother 4 promotional stuff I've seen barely says "the fan game", or they make the "fan game" subtitle way too little, it should be way more clear that this is not an official release. Because again, not everybody is a die hard Mother fan, many people might casually look a pics of it and think it's a real official game, which COULD lead to further confusion and misinformation, broken telephone-style.

I know, nobody is gonna die because of this, and it won't really affect the series in any way, but yes, it will cause confusion. And that's not cool.

>>253835654
See, I'm with you there completely except the name. Every time I see the name it throws me off completely. It's pretentious. I don't see why they just couldn't call it Mother: Rock Candy or Mother Tribute or something similar. I'd be fine with the game if the name was different.
>>
>>253835730
Itoi worked very closely with him because many themes in Mother are personal to Itoi. Are you retarded or just misunderstanding the core concept of translation?

I'm not sure why everyone is so damn angry over this.
for one it's a fan-game, people are taking time out of there lives to devote it to this game that has no real benefit for them, it's totally free so they aren't making money off it.
Itoi stated the following
>ITOI: I’m not going to release a MOTHER 4; MOTHER is over now.

>ITOI: The feeling of, “I want a MOTHER 4 to be released!” is inside me, too. Even if it’s not something I need to do, I still feel that way. Still, there isn’t someone for me to watch over from afar anymore. If there were a fourth game, I’d want to be the player
And you say
>It's pretentious and disrespectful!
I'll believe you when they start saying things like "This is better than anything itoi shat out." and only chase said anything even akin to this and look what happened to him.
another thing, people claim that making this game is taking what itoi said out of context.
>ITOI: The feeling of, “I want a MOTHER 4 to be released!” is inside me, too. Even if it’s not something I need to do, I still feel that way. Still, there isn’t someone for me to watch over from afar anymore. If there were a fourth game, I’d want to be the player.

Scratch that last part. It was on Kotaku's front page for a month or something and not one person thought it was an official game. It's on their website's FAQ, Nintendo has said nothing about it... it is literally impossible to make that assumption if you do the most basic research, like looking for more images.
>>
>>253836156

Some people aren't die-hard fans and won't do that. But they may tell their smash bros buddies "hey you heard? they're making a new Mother, those games where Ness is from".
Yes, people is stupid, but we can make things to prevent said stupidity from spreading around. For example, naming a fan0made game accordingly instead of calling it as if it was an official release.
It's not really that big of a deal. Again, I'm OK with this game being made, I just ask for a title that suits the project better. I don't like it being called "Mother 4".

Jesus Christ. You do not have to be a die-hard fan to google something.

There's also the fact that Itoi said, when he compared Animal Crossing to being Mother 4, that if a game was Mother 4 no matter how you look at it you might as well use the title.
>>
>>253836267
The pretentious name really kills it. Call me vain if you want but if Itoi isn't involved, I don't see why a subtitle wouldn't be acceptable.

Mother: Another Story
Mother: Tribute
Mother: Rock Candy Chronicles - A fan story

Seems like if the devs really respected Itoi and the franchise they'd take the effort to make a new name. And why not? Because then the mod wouldn't be as successful without the Mother name? That's shady imo

Only faggots think that only one person has the ability to understand or create a particular experience.

You guys are literally no better than SJWs. You throw around shit without any facts to back them up because that's how you "feel".

It's obviously called Mother 4 because the creator expressly stated he would not make a 4th and invited the fans to do so.

This is a tribute to the creator and a continuing of the series for the fans.

Maybe you should stop shitting on it until it actually comes out you pretentious faggots.

I know, I meant that some people will just not bother checking out the source and just assume Mother 4 is an official game, and misinform other people, but whatever, I don't think it'll really happen anyway. But some people out there WILL be confused, however, as you said, it's mostly their own problem.... could be prevented by simply naming the fan-game accordingly as I said though. Mother 4 is not a fan-game appropiate game.

>There's also the fact that Itoi said, when he compared Animal Crossing to being Mother 4, that if a game was Mother 4 no matter how you look at it you might as well use the title.

I was confused for a moment, and it was the first time I saw a Mother 4 thread here on /v/ (this was years ago... 2010 or so, I think), I was like "WHAT!!!", then I clicked on the site, read "fan game", and flipped the table.
My confusion didn't last more than a few seconds, but it was indeed very annoying.

Do you even know what an RPG is?
It's not about the action and flashiness of what's going on screen, but it's more about the personal connection between the player and the character itself.
The combat is more based on number crunching and possibility tweaking. Upgrading, exploring and uncovering parts of the world and experiencing the quirky facets of the story and characters are mostly the charm and incentive that drives the player to go through.

You're not going to get the same experience as you would actually playing it for yourself.
If you're interested in a game, play it. Don't watch some faghole play it.
If it's not for you, look elsewhere.

I don't know, I'm not on 4chan 24/7, but the times I've seen Mother 4 discussion, it was ALWAYS shitposting (and not only from the haters, but also from the apologists, who honestly are also very rude and pretentious, they're as annoying as the people who think Nintendo should C&D the fangame, which is also rude and unfair).

In my experience, Mother 4 always ruins Mother threads, and it's not really a thing of who's right or who's wrong, the behavior of both sides is wrong. It's really a shame.

With all of the negative attention this game has gotten due to its name I would expect that multiple people have probably already reported it to Nintendo in the hopes of it getting bombed with a Cease & Desist order.

That hasn't happened yet. Nintendo clearly doesn't give a shit and neither should you. But if it matters to you that much you should probably send Nintendo an email too, the worst that's gonna happen is that they'll have to change the name and drop all the textual references to Mother.

>>253839592

Really? No other Earthbound/Mother fans are insulted by it, like at Starman.net or wherever? I find that hard to believe.

I'm surprised that no one has gotten in contact with Itoi directly about the matter too, honestly. All that's brought up about him and Mother 4 is that old-as-dirt interview. I assume he's an old traditional dude that doesn't bother with the internet so he must be hard to get a hold of.

>>253839847
Well then they'd probably change the name. The only reason they're calling it Mother 4 is because Itoi and/or Nintendo aren't bothering to make one.
>>
>>253839959
Sequel to what?

>>253840040

Listen, shut up for a second. All of you, shut up.

Why are you so defensive? This is a question for both sides. Don't answer, because the answer is you love the Mother series. The people who hate the project don't want it to be tarnished, they love the series so much they can't see anything coming close and it's understandable. Who are these people, where did they come from, why are they calling it Mother 4? What kind of disrespect is that? The people who like the game want to play more Mother games. You like the world, these people seem like they might be able to give you more of that world. They might have cool ideas, the characters might be fun.

I get that.

If they didn't care, they'd still use the old graphics, Chase would still be on the team and still be acting like Itoi. They love the series too and I think they're trying to give back or give something new. I don't know. The devs are fans like us. Maybe they get emails from people that are excited... I don't know.

I just hate seeing this game break up a fan base when both sides are arguing from the same place. Will it be good? I have no way to judge that right now, and neither does anybody else. Yelling at one another and insulting one another doesn't do anything good for anybody.

Stop. Please read this thread to explain the title, and no it has nothing to do with Itoi's interviews. Its just the old title.

The name "Mother Forever" was posted in a thread that a dev was in a while back.

He said something along the lines of what >>253842772 said, but if I remember correctly, he thought the name was pretty good.

Each character has an individual level up jingle. If multiple characters level up at the same time, the jingles fit together.

They're all amateurs and no matter how you look at it, the fan game is fanfiction, if they were more mature and serious about making games, they'd make an original game, not a fangame sequel to a japanese game.

Personally, I'm pretty hyped.
The sprite work looks even better than Mother 3's and they seem to have managed to retain Itoi's unique sense of humor, to an extent.
I don't even have an issue with it being named "Mother 4" since it's pretty obvious that an actual Mother 4 is never going to be made.

Nope.

The shitposters drove them off pretty quick even if most of the time they just posted pictures and answered questions about their games.

/v/ is fucking awful and the mother fanbase who is protesting this is one of the reasons.

Yes, they're entitled as shit.

On a scale to Earthbound to Mother 3, how tragic is it?

He left Jim.
>>
>>253850854
Guy who left the team comes in, says "ask me anything" then spoils who the main villain is and when people call him out on it he acts like he's entitled to do that because he doesn't like that the dev team isn't posting about the game.

Then he leaves with a passive aggressive non apology.

Incidentally, as soon as /v/ started blasting his shit the shitposting and insulting at the game came back full swing.

Mother was never that good. The gameplay is a pretty standard Dragon Quest clone. The only thing that made the games excedingly good was the charm, the characters, the graphics, etc, and it all came form Itoi. Nobody else can make a Mother game. It's why Nintendo respects that and wants the series to just stay dead. And it's why this fangame will be shit.

The combat was fucking great, anon.

When I first read about the fangame I was very disappointed when it seemed to be a fanfiction-self inseting-tier game. Now it seems they might be on something.

I am even starting to like the music

What's so special about it? The dialogue in battles is fun, but that's it, the combat itself is just Dragon Quest.

>>253851127
OK, I'll make Mother 4. It's about a boy that goes on a wacky journey and makes some quirky friends and finds the bad guy and kills the bad guy and it gets really emotional and gives you 'feels'. And there's some really, really deep themes.
Wanna come to my house and blow me now, or after dinner?

Sure thing, bro. Let me whip out my RPGmaker skills and tweak a couple of the mother 3 sprites. Also gimme 5 minutes to make my deep original characters. There, all done! Open wide bro, and don't forget to defend my game for me against the big bads on the net!

nigger please, wanting a sequel to a beloved series made by the person who created said series is not entitled at all, you fucking parrot

>entitled because you prefer the originator of the source material to create the game rather than a bunch of nobodies that think liking the series is enough qualification to make a sequel on the originator's behalf, despite the fact that they have no clue what the creator's intentions for the series are and will likely do a piss poor job desperately trying to emulate what they personally think he's on about

Holy shit, how autistic can you be!?

The people hating on it are just retarded shitposters. They literally haven't presented an argument worth a fucking shit
>I only want Itoi to make it!
Itoi said he wanted to see a mother game made by someone else, he had minimal involvement in 3.
>HE DIDN'T SAY A FAN GAME!!
He didn't say an official game either, stop putting words in his mouth.
>It's COCKY to name your game Mother 3
And it's somehow less cocky when games like Final Fantasy do it on a yearly basis?
>B-but I DON'T LIKE IT!!!
That's your opinion obviously someone does otherwise you wouldn't have so many calling you out.

Also literally all of their game related problems have been addressed as the former creator left, the game has since been rebooted in C++ and it no longer resembles the first project.

There is literally no reason to be so angry at this besides the fact that you're an autist.
>>
>>253851791
How do you know he was right and things hadn't changed since then? What if they thought throwing the villain at you right away was a bad idea, or the guy didn't understand the story? What if it was a bigger spoiler than you thought? As soon as you see that guy in game, you know he's the villain.
>>
>>253851558

He's literally said "No more Mother from me. I'm fucking done. Seriously, not even being vague, guys. Case fucking closed. Stop bothering me, I have poetry to write".

He outright said he didn't want to make mother 4 himself. Or any mother game. HE said he wanted it to be made by someone else.

Nothing special about that, unless you mean it's something related to Mother 3, I didn't play it. Just 1 and 2.

>>253851819
It is when the creator said didn't even make the 3rd game, and outright said he didn't want to make the 4th.

Yet HE MUST make it because YOU want him to.

That's the definition of entitled.Forcing other people to accommodate you because you think you deserve it, regardless of if you actually do deserve it or not.

Whining about a fangame isn't going to make him come back. Hell, if he sees how malicious you guys are getting I'd dare say it would turn him off the series.

You know what else is a fan game? Portal, L4, Team fortress, and CSGo

You know what other "official" games are made by someone not their original creator?

Mario, Final Fantasy, Donkey Kong Country, CoD, and many, many more games.

But you know what? No one EVER complains about the people making them, they critisize the product themselves, with facts. They fdon't spout opinionated nonsense, and through around "soulless" like it means something.

Those are all mods. Dota too. When you modify an existing game that's not a fangame.

I didn't say half of that, you're letting your imagination run wild. Also, you could really do with a dictionary, because that is most definitely not the definition of 'entitled'.

He may not have had a heavy hand in the third title, but it was made by competent devs that he obviously trusted to do right by his creation, not a bunch of twats who thinking being a fan gives you the right to determine the outcome of a series. If he's done working on it, let it fucking die. It doesn't belong to you, or me. We're fans of it, and that's where it stops. But, this is why fanbases are absolute shit, because most of you can't just leave well enough alone, you have to make a spectacle of every goddamn thing. It's embarrassing, and why I don't associate with liking particular things, even when I do, because my peers are so juvenile with regards to their inability to accept the state of things. There are more series than I care to admit that have been utterly shit on by people who claim to like the material, who then do their utmost to make sure the mere mention of said material is enough to know that person is likely mentally ill in some capcity or another due to the sheer ferocity of the fanbase. Castlevania, Metal Gear is a great example, Mega Man, too. They're numerous, and depressing. Fuck fans.
