Seto pays tribute to Shigesato Itoi classics with the Mother/Earthbound Saga

In a different world I would have had PKReading as my handle everywhere rather than genoboost had I gotten the chance to play Earthbound in my formative youth. With that said, I am still a sucker for anything Earthbound, even though I played it for the first time in my twenties. 

Check out this relaxing collection of remixes of some of the catchier themes found in the Mother trilogy from Seto

I especailly enjoy the closing track Mambo de Battle, so be sure to listen to the album on through, but I'm sure Mother fans don't need much convincing with anything Mother/Earthbound related.

Why Kumatora should be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS


I dream and hope that Kumatora would get some recognition in the upcoming Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. Especially the 3DS version which has had a special focus on handheld games such as Mother 3.

It might seem like a lot to ask to get a third character from the Mother series, but considering the similarities between Ness and Lucas, I believe the Mother franchise is well known enough, at least in Japan, to warrant one more original character. 

As a character she has a very unique look with her large blue sweater and short pink hair. A large contrast to the other women currently announced for Super Smash Bros. Her use of psychic powers would give her an interesting move set unlike Ness or Lucas. Perhaps a special move assault type character more along the lines of Link or Pelutena.

I am just an Earthbound fanboy, so that is my primary motivation for wanting Kumatora to appear in Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS.

At the very least, I would love to see a trophy of her, and see how Sakurai decides to update her into a 3D model in full HD.

Check out the amazing work Mother 3 Love by FlintofMother3 and keep on dreaming big.
