|Portal: RPGs||Mother at|
Mother, sometimes known as EarthBound Zero, is the first game in the Mother series. It is an RPG for the NES starring Ninten, a very similar character to EarthBound's Ness, though it has been understood that they are not the same. Regardless, Mother shares many similarities to its sequel EarthBound, such as PSI abilities and the main antagonist Giygas (called Giegue during this game).
North American release
The game was intended to be released outside of Japan. In fact, it was even fully translated and ready to go. However, with the release of the SNES, it was decided not to release a new NES game. Fans were still able to play the game many years later, in ROM form, when it was leaked onto the internet.
