The folks at EarthBound Central have been following Mother designer Shigesato Itoi's Twitter like they presumably always do, and apparently something is a brewing. The outlet translated two recent tweets:

"Since it's now okay to blurt this out, here goes: the "MOTHER republication" thing I mentioned briefly before is making progress," reads Itoi's first remark. "It's not "(MOTHER) 4", though! This has to do with making "MOTHER" playable. I can't give out any details just yet, but I do at least need to say that it isn't 4."

Vague, yes, but you know how we get. The translator says that Itoi is probably referring to the whole series here, not the original game, and that "playable" in this case has to do with the game(s) being out of print. Dare I plant the concept of a compilation in your mind? I'm going to think nothing of this, if at all possible, just to avoid potential disappointment. ...Okay, I give up.

And there are four new Minis to collect: Yeti King, Old Bitey, Alien Lord, and Anubis. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but these do come in blind boxes, unfortunately. [Via Tiny Cartridge]more

Alright, I need this Gravity Rush figure in my life

I don't like stuff. Maybe living lean is a product of smaller San Francisco living arrangements, maybe it's a product of semi-frequent moves, but I don't like to own a lot of things. Figures have almost always fallen into thi...more

That sexy aluminum NES is available for pre-order now for $499

[Update: Nintendo asked if we would update this story to say that this is not a legal product. No problem, I said.] Remember that aluminum NES we told you about earlier this year? It's available now. The Analogue NT is a NES/...more
