    I get a feeling we'll see it on VC, probably at a 2000 point price tag too.

    Stupid Nintendo not giving the GBA its swan song after keeping them in business.

    True Nintendo really screwed the pooch with this one. Nothing that substantial will be released on GBA at this point. We're basically screwed.

    You can't blame Nintendo, though. The original Earthbound didn't sell well in America.

    Well, that was a long time ago when net hype wasn't possible. They could have tested the waters with the Mother 1&2 GBA cart which wouldn't even have been much of an effort since afaik official translations of both exist even though Mother 1 was never released or something.

    I'm thinking that in the future Nintendo might bundle all 3 of them and port them to DS.

    That would indeed be nice but also a lot of work since people would expect usage of the DS features on at least one of the games.

    they could just add minor stuff, like they did with Harvest Moon DS.
