    I think Nintendo just won E3. Again. Like they always do.

    I didn't expect that at all, a pleasant surprise, though I wonder if they will change the unforgiving encounter rate.

    I wonder how long it will take before rom modders make a version based on the VC translation.

    According to the creator of the mother1/2 fan translation, the official script is kind of bad, assuming that Nintendo didn't reworked the Earthbound Zero script before the official release. Not sure whether I should play this or the mother 1 fan translation on the GBA.

    I'm pretty sure they're not touching the translation at all.

    Hmm the fan translation is what I'll be playing on my tablet of Nds as I've already started the very early stages.

    Well, this may be one step close to Mother 3.

    actually north korea. please send help
    It looks like it's the translation from the original prototype cartridge, I'm pretty sure the text is exact.
    I still feel lightheaded from freaking out about the announcement, I was so happy about it and actually missed some details about it, like the fact that it was being released on Wii U VC only.

    I see that there is a mother 1+2 GBA translation. Was there ever a Mother NES translation?

    Pretty sure it's already been dumped from the original prototype English version of this game.
    The only differences this one would have would be the title screen, which will say "EARTHBOUND BEGINNINGS" instead of "EARTH BOUND"
    There was an offical one that was never released, you can find dumps of the prototype cart online.

    You can't just assume that this is the same as the prototype...
