ALL EarthBound and Mother Fans!!!

EarthBound, known in Japan as Mother, is a role-playing game series created by Shigesato Itoi for Nintendo. The series started in 1989 with the Japan only release of Mother for the Famicom, and was then followed up by a sequel, released in the U.S. as EarthBound for the Super NES in 1995, and followed up again much later with the Japan only release of Mother 3 for the Game Boy Advance in 2006. Itoi stated in an interview that the name "Mother" was greatly influenced by the John Lennon song "Mother".[citation needed]

The EarthBound games are not a sequential series, but rather three "stand alone" games that feature some common characters, themes, and settings. All three games are tied together with the final bosses.

In stark contrast to the sword-and-sorcery settings of many Japanese role-playing games, the EarthBound series takes place in a more modern Western setting, told from a Japanese perspective. Mother is set in suburban America, while EarthBound is set in Eagleland (an allusion to the United States) and Mother 3 is set on Nowhere Island (with some Western overtones). Enemies consist of everything from aliens, to possessed guitars, to evil hippies. Instead of swords and shields, weapons consist of household items, from Yo-yos to frying pans (Though there are some cases of swords being used as weapons, but they are often rare). The series became extremely popular in Japan, and merchandise for the game was produced, including shirts, handbooks, and even a fully-orchestrated and performed soundtrack.
