Best of 2022: Join us as we celebrate ‘The Mother We Share: Our Earth’s Story’
During the holidays, we are republishing some selection feature from the past 12 months. Compilation of arguments, interviews, opinions and more from NL staff and collaborators, you’ll find our usual blend of thoughtfulness, expertise, vanity, classic nostalgia, and — of course — enthusiasm for all things Nintendo. Happy holidays!
It’s the second Sunday in May, which means Mother’s Day in many countries around the world (though not in the UK, where Mother’s Sunday falls in March). We’re celebrating Mother’s Day this year in a very special way and looking back at a special Mother that Nintendo fans around the world are united in their adoration — Shigesato Itoi’s MOTHER series.
Zion Grassl, a lovely person and one of our resident senior video producers, has dedicated himself to creating this video — the heart of our Mother’s Day celebration — over several weeks, Attracting celebrities from around the world for video game fans and creators to honor and celebrate EarthBounds games: EarthBound Beginnings, earth limitand US 3.
In these conversations, Zion explores the special nature of this unique trilogy with a number of interviewees you’ll probably recognize. Yes, you’ll see some familiar faces, hear some familiar voices, and even hear from a particular indie game developer whose work was heavily influenced by the MOTHER series. You then, that Indie game developer!
We hope you enjoyed the video above. It’s a (relatively) long watch — perfect for Sundays — and we’re proud of that. Happy Mother’s Day!
