Mother 3 producer discusses lack of western release


Nintendo cult classic Mother 3 still hasn’t reached the west, and now its producer has been asked why.

Discussing the long-requested threequel with former Nintendo Treehouse employees Kit and Krysta on their new podcast (thanks, Nintendo Life), producer Shinichi Kameoka was asked directly why Mother 3 had never seen the light of day outside of Japan.

“Personally, I think the biggest selling point of Mother 3 is [creator] Shigesatao Itoi’s unique writing style,” Kameoka replied, “translating the charm and nuances of his writing into other languages is quite a challenge, and maybe that’s why it’s taken so long to consider international releases of Mother 3.”
