MOTHER 1 + 2 is a console role-playing game developed by Ape Inc., Nintendo Tokyo R&D Products and HAL Laboratory and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance on June 20, 2003. It is a compilation of the first two installments of the Mother series, MOTHER and MOTHER 2: GIYGAS STRIKES BACK! (the former being known outside Japan as EarthBound Beginnings and the latter as EarthBound). The game was meant to promote the upcoming Mother 3.

About the English translation

This is an unofficial Mother 1 + 2 Fan Translation (English v1.01) released in 2011. MOTHER 1 has been given a complete English retranslation intended to make the game more accessible to EarthBound fans (details here), while MOTHER 2 has basic menu and name translations. Since this is from the Japanese version, nothing is censored.
