Mother shop

A new shop for the Mother franchise will be opening in Japan. Starting this month, fans will be able to purchase merchandise based on the Nintendo series.

Mother no Omise, otherwise known as Mother’s Shop, will first open in Osaka at Umeda Loft’s stationery market on the 6th floor. The Hobo Nichiyobi store on the 8th floor of Shibuya Parco in Tokyo will then have access. Dates are planned for November 19 to December 6 in Osaka and December 14 to December 27 in Tokyo.

Among what can be purchased at the shop is the Mother no Kotoba script book and the biggest plush ever made for Mr. Saturn, which is knee-length sized. Other merchandise includes the Franklin Badge, towels, and bead charms. There are also smaller plushies planned for Master Belch and Mr. Saturn.



Nintendo’s Mother series hasn’t had a lot of news in recent years, but that’s starting to change today. New initiatives are being planned as part of the Hobonichi Mother Project.

The first update concerns a book containing every piece of dialogue from the franchise. It’s tentatively planned for release by the end of this year.
