After about 3 months of on-and-off work, I present to you a (to my knowledge) complete list of every piece of music MOTHER 3 references / takes inspiration from. Due to a lack of a comprehensive list online, I decided to step up and make my own. These types of lists are interesting and let you into the mind of the composers, seeing their inspirations and nod of respect to various other musical pieces. All tracks are shown in their order of encounter in the game.
The video is a bit lengthy, but if you are a big MOTHER fan like I am, you will definitely enjoy it.
I had to pitch-shift and edit the audio for the Beatles playback due to their insanely aggressive copyright striking. I hope you don’t mind.
