    If Earthbound/Mother comes to the Wii, I'll faint from happiness.

    Yay. But I can't possibly believe that. We have been fooled too many times [​IMG]

    But I think that at least Mother 2 will appear on the VC.

    I would kill to have the Mother series running perfectly on my DS. I'd commit genocide if it was in English. [​IMG]
    I think I'll cry myself to sleep if this is just a false alarm. Oh Nintendo! Why must you do this to us???

    I don't think Nintendo will ever release the other Earthbound games here. They had Earthbound 0 (Mother 1) completely done and ready to release in America, but never did. Then they were making Earthbound 64 and canceled that. Then they made Mother 3 on the GBA along with ports of Mother 1 and 2 for the GBA which they said all 3 games would come to America. Yeah.

    Sweet Zombie Jesus, I hope so. But I don't trust NOA to do the right thing. I'm still holding out hope that the M3 Translation team to finish the patch.

    Earthbound for NES was cancelled because it was too late, SNES was already on the shelf and Nintendo thought it wouldn't sell well. Earthbound64 was cancelled because Itoi's team had serious problems with 3D, and after all much that delay, the project was abandoned. And after the low sales of Earthbound ("THIS GAME STINKS!" with an ad campaign like that, I can believe it) they thought that Mother1+2 or Mother3 wouldn't sell well too.

    But they're ABSOLUTELY wrong [​IMG]

    Right you are. But there a bunch of tards, even on GBATemp that insist there aren't enough fans in the US (wrong). And the thing is EB 1, 2 & 3 are already developed. We're talking translations &/or polishing. The fact that Nintendo holds out on us makes me crazy.

    Yeah, right. I can't believe that after all Starmen.net did they're still not doing it. Even only the users of Starmen.net would be enough for these games to sell well [​IMG]

    Does not Mean if they sell Earthbound 3 here it'd flop maybe it'd grow fans!

    VC is easy.

    A port of the Mother 1+2 with an English script inserted too. Mother 3, not as much. It hasn't been translated. Though... The DS hardware is far more similar to GBA than fans believe or would ever admit.

    Apparently, she's an industry insider and her rumors usually turn out to be true. No one knows her real identity though. Think of her as the bat man of gamers.

    This is the first time I've heard of her too. [​IMG]
    That's why I said 'apparently'.

    Sorry but I highly doubt anything this "surfer girl" says after she said that Beyond good and evil 2 was going to come out, that lie was just too obvious.

    Heh, Surfer Girl has no proof to back this up.
    It is just a guess - and you folks shouldn't believe it.

    Nintendo has no intention on doing anything with the Mother series, or they would of done it by now (EarthBound came out in the 90s, and they've done nothing with it since).
