Fan-made Mother 4 coming 'winter 2014'

It doesn't look Nintendo will ever begin work on another Mother game, so fans have taken it upon themselves to create their own, releasing a new trailer for the fan-made Mother 4.

Nintendo has expressed no interest in continuing the Earthbound series, aka "Mother" in Japan. But fans have proven quite dedicated to the franchise, even creating a translated script for the unreleased Mother 3. Fans have even taken to making an unofficial sequel, due next year.

A new trailer for the completely fan-made Mother 4 (via Kotaku) shows off many elements of classic Earthbound, from the 16-bit isometric animated world to turn-based battles against weird foes.

Mother 4 is set to release in 2014, barring any legal action from Nintendo of America's crack legal team, known to mobilize at a moment's notice.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
