Mother 4 would be “impossible,” says Itoi

Earthbound creator Shigesato Itoi has splashed cold water on anyone’s hope that a fourth installment in the series will be released in the future.

According to a tweet from the man himself when asked, he said it was “impossible.”

A rather simple and to the point answer, with nothing else said on the matter or an explanation as to why exactly it would be impossible.

Fans will have to console themselves with Earthbound – or Mother 2 – on Wii U through Virtual Console later this year.

Thanks, Nintendo Life.

    These titles should see E Shop sequels IMO…

    Not worth the hassle of a massive dev team working on it, but with the quality of DL games these days, games like Mother / 2D Metroid etc… Would make a lot of sense releasing for £10 through the Wii U E Shop.
