* {{Retraux}}: Shares the overall GBA design of ''VideoGame/{{MOTHER 3}}'', with some minor [[http://blue3.deviantart.com/art/Anti-Aliasing-Tutorial-213141706 anti-aliasing]] to make the shading of the sprites look smoother. {{Averted}} with the music, though, which uses a completely original sound font that sounds way more advanced than anything the GBA or SNES could do, Outside of the {{Sampling}} example below, of course.

On March 1, 2017, the dev team announced that the game will be [[SerialNumbersFiledOff rebranding itself into an original IP]], as to not encounter the [[ScrewedByTheLawyers legal issues faced by]] [[VideoGame/AnotherMetroid2Remake other]] Creator/{{Nintendo}} [[VideoGame/PokemonUranium fan]] [[VideoGame/PokemonBrownAndPrism games]]. This was done via an AMA on Reddit which can be found [[https://www.reddit.com/r/mother4/comments/5wzfjk/todays_announcement/ here.]] Notable changes include removing the series mascot Mr. Saturn, changing the user interface to less directly resemble the MOTHER games, and replacing the series staple PsychicPowers with an original power called VOX. So it's less a sequel now and more a SpiritualSuccessor. C'est la vie.

** The sprite work so far is ''amazing'', as seen on their site, and all of it was made in [[UpToEleven various versions of]] {{MS Paint}}. Not only that, but there's a lot of attention to detail with it, with several [=NPCs=] in the game having their own idling sprites when not walking around, a few occasional birds flying in the background of certain areas, and even being able to see the insides of buildings through their windows. All this results in a game world that feels very lively, despite being a purely 2D game.
