Mother 3 – Earthbound 64 [N64 – Cancelled]

Mother 3 was originally announced in 1996 for the Nintendo 64. Development soon moved to the Nintendo 64DD, where it was to be a launch title. Developer Benimaru Itoh remarked at E3’s 1997 convention that the game would probably utilize the Rumble Pak in battle sequences, but worried that the controller would become too cumbersome for players given the time-consuming nature of role-playing games. Itoi also aimed to allow players to pick several character faces or create new visages with Mario Artist. Shigesato Itoi’s team ran into some trouble while developing this game, due to their inexperience with 3D games and the difficulty of developing for Nintendo 64 hardware. The Nintendo 64DD became a commercial failure, and on August 21, 2000, Itoi officially confirmed the game’s cancellation. The project was revived in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance, and it was eventually released on April 20, 2006. [Infos from Wikipedia]

One of the meanings of “Nobi” is “stretch” in Japanese.The game was first shown at a press conference held during Sony’s Playstation Premiere 2007 event in Tokyo. Takahashi showed a silver stretch hose with two pink balls at the ends, explaining that it wasn’t a controller, but a visual aid to help explain the game. A 30-second demostration clip was then shown, featuring a quadrapedal character shaped like two round balls, with an elastic abdomen that can stretch like a hose.A playable prototype of the game was showcased at the GameCity 2007 International Interactive Entertainment Festival, where Takahashi delivered the festival’s Vision Statement for the year. In the demo; as many as three Nobi Nobi Boys were shown interacting on flat plane filled barnyard animals; in which their elastic bodies were be used to snap, whip, entangle, and drag themselves around. The Nobi Nobi Boys could swallow animals, distending the Nobi Nobi Boys’ bellies, which could then be whipped to the posterior to be expelled. – [info from Wikipedia]
