Fans of the MOTHER/Earthbound series are in for a real treat this year. Hobonichi, the company founded by creator Shigesato Itoi which has produced many books and journals in the past, has made a big surprise announcement concerning the franchise. With just a simple tweet, the following video and website was shared.

Thankfully, Clyde Mandelin (a professional translator who also worked on Mother 3’s fan translation) provided a brief synopsis regarding the context of this announcement:

As for when this next batch of news will drop, the Mother Project site does have a sign-up for further announcements via e-mail, although they’re likely to be in Japanese. It’s worth noting that earlier this year Hobonichi was recruiting manga artists with Mother series familiarity, so it’s possible we could see the results of that.
