Official Mother 3 cuddly toy set on its way

For a long time, the Earthbound franchise was a one-off, deep outside Japan. For literally decades, those in Europe and North America were only left with the SNES release of Earthbound, but we finally got the Famicom outing via the Wii U Virtual Console in 2022, when the title was renamed Earthbound Beginnings. All that remains now is for Mother 3 to receive the same treatment.

While Mother 3 may not have a clear path to localization at the moment, that doesn’t mean fans aren’t familiar with the game. Many were introduced to the characters and settings through references and additions to the Smash Bros. series, so there are undoubtedly some Mother 3 diehards outside of Japan. Those of you who fall into that category will be thrilled to know that a new set of Mother 3 merchandise is just around the corner.

There have been several Earthbound plush releases over the years, and that line will be expanding with a quartet of Mother 3 plushies. The lineup, featuring Lucas, Claus, Kumatora and Duster, will be released in Japan on April 25, 2024. If you want to keep an eye on those pre-orders or get a closer look at each plushie, you can find the official landing page here.
