Mother 3 (マザースリー Mazā Surī) is a 2006 role-playing video game developed by Nintendo, Brownie Brown and HAL Laboratory and published for the Game Boy Advance handheld game console. The game has only been released in Japan, though it has a worldwide cult following. It was written by Shigesato Itoi, the creator of the series, and directed by Nobuyuki Inoue. The music was composed by Shōgo Sakai. While Mother 3 is the sequel to EarthBound and is the third game in the series, the story focuses on a new, unrelated cast of characters.

Mother 3 is set on the "Nowhere Islands", a series of sparsely inhabited islands on Earth. The game switches perspectives between the main characters, who are all people (or animals) who live on the islands. The game focuses on twins named Lucas and Claus, their family, and the friends who join them to fight against the mysterious Pigmask Army. The game's story is a tragedy: its main themes involve coping with the loss of family members and the perils of consumerism. The game also has many comedic elements, such as its parody of other video games. The game was advertised as "strange, funny, [and] heartrending".

Mother 3 had a very long development cycle; it began development in 1994 as a Super Famicom title, but development transitioned to the 64DD, then to the Nintendo 64, and finally to the Game Boy Advance. Although Nintendo of America has not announced plans to localize Mother 3, a fan translation group has released a patch to translate the game into English. According to Itoi there are no plans to create a fourth Mother game, and has announced not to create another installment. However, he may continue making other games besides Mother.

Super Beard Bros.Edit

Uploaded on April 26th, 2014, Mother 3 is the sequel to America's Earthbound, a game that Jirard personally loved.

This series is filled with many accidents, such as losing the game's audio and losing the save data multiple times, but even through this, the bros. play on, set on beating this game, even if it takes them as long as Wild Arms (okay, maybe not that long... OKAY, maybe THAT long)...


  • As of January 26, 2015, this is the single longest game ever played by the Bros at 66 episodes.

The Completionist Edit

Shortly after Alex and Jirard finished their Super Beard Bros. playthrough of the game, Mother 3 became the 120th episode of The Completionist as part of the Month of Sequels 2015. Though Jirard had previously claimed he would wait for an official release of the game before reviewing it, he decided that the clip from Nintendo's E3 2014 presentation of Reggie Fils-Ame setting a Mother fan on fire in the style of Robot Chicken meant that this was unlikely.

Jirard and Alex heavily praise the engaging story and themes, as well as the polished and detailed graphics, especially for the Game Boy Advance. Greg also lends praise to the music, especially in how much he sees it as an improvement over Earthbound's music. Additions to gameplay are also appreciated by the three, particularly the run mechanic, rhythm based battle system, hot springs, and save frogs. Alex has small criticism with the inventory organization, calling it "archaic." Overall, Jirard lauds the game, as well as the Mother franchise, as a unique and fulfilling experience.

Trivia Edit

  • This was the last episode of The Completionist to feature Greg before his departure from That One Video Gamer.
