Mother Dies! No Fourth Game For Itoi

IGN Gameboy have reported that the series producer Shigesato Itoi revealed today via an interview posted at his blog site, that he has no plans to make Mother 4. When asked if he would be making games anymore, Itoi responded “Not Mother 4.”

Nintendo released Mother 3, the latest installment in the popular Mother series in Japan last week over a decade after the second installment was released for the SNES (the series is known as Earthbound in America). The game went on to sell over 200,000 units in its first week. With success like that many other developers would already be planing another follow-up but it seem like Itoi does not want to.
