Also, the "end of the world" as it is described in Mother 3 could be in Mother 1 when that game's Magicant disappeared, Poor or abusive relationships. MOTHER 3 is the long awaited sequel to EarthBound and the third (and final) entry in Shigesato Itoi's MOTHER franchise; it continues the tradition of weird .
Note that you'd also have to change all the instances of the title in the main text, too. That's a lot of work. There's also the fact that the game has been regularly called MOTHER 3 by fans and news sites and magazines since it was announced back in The game is also called Mother 3 in Smash Bros. Brawl everywhere, including the Smash Bros. While changing the name wouldn't hurt all this too much, it seemed to fit better if we left the name untouched.

If Nintendo ever decides to release it in English, they can choose whatever official name they want. Speaking of which, publicly-available financial documents see here actually list the game as "EarthBound 3". Is that because they simply translated "Mother" to "EarthBound" so investors would know? Or would they actually have tried to fix the numbering scheme had they released the game in English? This is very reminescent of the Final Fantasy series and its crazy numbering in the old days and just adds to the confusion.
If you've played the game, you can probably understand this. There's even an unused line well, at least it hasn't been found in actual use yet from near the end of the game where Duster or Kumatora actually mention that it's a strange coincidence that all three of the main characters are without mothers.
You can probably find many more subtle things where the title comes into play, but in any event, that's another reason for keeping it the same. The idea of having multiple patch versions was brought up by a few fans, but to keep sanity and to make the release seem a litte more official-like, we opted to go with just one patch. There are probably many more reasons for staying with the existing title, but at this point this is just getting too long. We did name the. I can't remember, plus I'm not very good with manipulating sprites and OAM and all that.
Maybe in a future version, I dunno. First, and probably most important, are the names themselves. Strangely enough, the game only has one "Don't Care" name for each character In actuality, each person has seven possible names, but the designers made them all the same, probably per Itoi's request.
The favorite food thing and favorite thing have many different defaults though, which is why it seems so strange I think. Incidentally, all the descriptions for these characters also appeared on Itoi's MOTHER 3 World preview site, so it was neat seeing all these things coming together. Now for the names themselves. In the English translation as demonstrated in Smash Bros. Brawlhis name is pronounced with English pronunciation rather than French pronunciation, which leaves the "s" off when said aloud.
Claus Claus also gets his name from the same novel; Claus and Lucas were brothers in the book, too. This information is actually very old, there are Itoi interviews dating way, way back where he discusses this. Flint Many characters in this name are based on themes. Flint is one such case.
He gets his name from a type of gun: Hinawa Hinawa gets her name from a type of gun too: This is apparently an " arquebus ", or you could just say "matchlock" for simplicity's sake, since I've never even heard the word "arquebus" before. Because of this name theme thing, we considered localizing her name as something else. One that I still remember is "Amber". I was hesitant to change her name at first, since people had been playing the game for almost two years and had grown accustomed to the name.
Changing it would cause mass hysteria. But I realized that on the other hand, the translation was for people who HADN'T played the game to death yet, so it was troubling. I decided to wait on it and figure it out later. But then Smash Bros. Since millions of people would be playing it, and since it was from an official source, I decided to go with what Brawl named her, which was "Hinawa".
I considered instead giving her "Amber" as one of her alternate default names, but then that'd be strange that she had alternates but no one else did, and I didn't want to come up with things for all the others. Plus you can name her whatever you want anyway. Boney Boney's name is strange. It's unclear if his name comes from anything. Fans have called him Boney since the old Nintendo 64 days though, so I just went with it.
Not a very difficult foe, so for the most part, you can just wing it. Ancient Banana, Luxury Banana Dogfish: The absolute king of anything that has two fins and two floppy ears will always drop Meteotite, so yay for money. Beef Jerky Slimy Slug: Sprinting Bomb Greedier Mouse: Kill it and take the delicious food it has hidden away. More exclamation points means more danger.
