Shigesato Itoi was recently asked by a fan on Twitter about whether or not there will be a new installment in the Mother franchise, possibly even a Mother 4. His response, when translated from Japanese, was simply “Impossible.”
This is not the first time that Itoi has said no to the notion of Mother 4. Itoi has stated multiple times that he would not make any games in the series past Mother 3. He did, however, say that he was fine with someone else making it:
“What I mean is, if someone were to come up to me and say, ‘I’d like to make a MOTHER 4,’ I might just say, “Sure, go ahead!” Yeah, if there was a MOTHER 4, I’d really love to play it.”
Thankfully, Azure Studios is currently in the process of making an unofficial fan-sequel called, appropriately enough, Mother 4. For more info about this fan-game you can check out their site here.
