You Can Now Read The Official Mother Novels In English
If you are a Mother/Earthbound Fan and craving new stories set in this strange and beautiful universe, you might be interested in reading Nyaasu’s fan translation of Mother and Mother 2.
Both of these novels never received an official English translation. They tell the stories of the first two games in much more detail. Both were written by Saori Kumi, and both were approved by Mother series creator Shigesato Itoi.
Here are the covers of both books:
Mother: The original story
“I must go with you! – Ana, a girl with mysterious powers, athletic Ken, and young science genius Lloyd team up to save the world from a crisis. To enlist the help of Queen Mary, ruler of the Magicant Kingdom, they must track down eight melodies scattered across the world as the sinister influence of their alien foe draws steadily closer. And what is the true identity of their fearsome enemy…? A complete novelization of Shigesato Itoi’s favorite immersive RPG!”
“My name is Ness. Before the meteor hit the mountain behind my house, I was just a baseball-loving kid in a red baseball cap. But after that night, an incredible journey began for my friends and me! Paula a beautiful blonde with psychic powers. Jeff a prodigy with everything mechanical. And Pu, the prince of the mysterious kingdom. To protect the future of our world, we will need all our courage, wisdom, and love to face a huge enemy! The RPG masterpiece from producer/director Shigesato Itoi returns in an epic and emotional novelization.”
Natsu says they hope “there will be more” over time. You can check both translations on the translator’s website.
