Shigesato Itoi Talks About The Mother Series And Once Again Denies Mother 4

Mother series creator Shigesato Itoi recently chatted about the beloved series with Japanese gaming publication, Game Watch. Thankfully, Tuxedo Unmasked were at hand and translated the interview for everyone. During the interview Itoi discussed why he thinks the series has been a hit and he also reiterated that Mother 4 is not in development, though he does hear the fans pleas.

“It’s the connection with modern day life and modern day places, I suppose. When you’re suddenly told “It’s dinner time!” right in the middle of playing “Dragon Quest,” you’re taken out of the setting, but it’s different with MOTHER. I think it’s good that it’s tied to modern day life.”

“I’d love to run a marathon while holding my breath, but as with MOTHER 4, that’s just not feasible. People in America are always saying that “4 is on its way to being made,” but that’s simply a rumor. (laugh) I can’t even imagine how difficult it would be now. Of course, only showing the very fringe elements and giving the impression that it was being worked on was something I did thoroughly with MOTHER 2… and 3.”

If McDonald’s isn’t your thing and you really want the Hoopa Pokemon then there’s a little trick you can use. To get Hoopa the normal way you need to visit your local McDonald’s and use their wifi to gain access to the game’s Mystery Gift function.To get around this all you need to do is change your WiFi name to McDonalds Free WiFi and make sure a password isn’t set. Here’s a set by step guide on how to do this!

  1. Change your wifi access point SSI or name to McDonalds Free WiFi and make sure it doesn’t have a password set.  Don’t have access to your router or internet connection (because you live with your family and don’t want to change the settings)?  Then set up your phone’s personal hotspot with the same details and use that instead.
  2. Delete all other networks and register this new one.
  3. Start your game, then Select Mystery Gift, and then Receive Via the Internet.
  4.  That’s it.  You should now have Hoopa in your game.
