MOTHER 3.5 is a non-existent canceled expansion for EarthBound 64.

On August 13th, 1999, IGN reported, “Though the game was shifted over to cartridge from its original 64DD form last year, MOTHER 3‘s producer also made mention of a 64DD expansion disk for the title, which is currently being called ‘MOTHER 3.5.’ No details regarding the expansion have been made available, though it is expected to serve up an entirely new quest and characters, but utilize the same game engine as the cartridge game." Where IGN got this information is unknown. This false report lead many to believe that there was a planned expansion for EarthBound 64.

Twitter user OKeijiDragon asked the game designer of MOTHER 3, Akihiko Miura about the rumored MOTHER 3.5 expansion. Akihiko Miura responded that "no specific action was done" in regards to an expansion for MOTHER 3, debunking the claims of any expansion to EarthBound 64.
