Japanese men's magazine Brutus recently posted a four-page interview with Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata and Mother (EarthBound) series creator Shigesato Itoi. The discussion touches upon the various emotions and themes that permeate the Mother games as well as the appreciation fans have for the series. It's a meeting of minds brought together by a single topic: a potential Mother 4.
