    All aboard the hype train, folks - but let me warn you, I think the next stop is crushing disappointment.

    I see very little chance of this considering the history Nintendo has when it comes to the Mother/Earthbound series, All a man can do is dream!
    CHOO CHOO! All aboard, and get your tickets ready!

    I know you may have heard the wii u could be saved by first party Nintendo, but this is certainly not what we had in mind...

    This must be fake an error. There is a higher chance we see Shenmue 3, Half-Life 3, and/or Kingdom Hearts 3 get released and localized.

    Is not fake as you can go to Amazon UK and find the listing. You mean an error on Amazon

    Maybe amazon will also sell the virtual console version and the price is just an error.

    Darn. The Wii U has piracy but not actual homebrew or game mods. Almost zero chance you'll get to play it in English.

    If a Mother 4 is to be made (would be ridiculous to have a port of Earthbound on the SNES for that price), I would say "Mother of god."

    Is anybody else wondering if Amazon just screwed up and whoever listed it meant to list the Wii U eshop title but just saw Earthbound - Wii U and guessed on the price?

    I hope Nintendo does the right thing. Why is it so hard for them to understand that people really wanna buy this game. :hateit:

    Because, on the whole, people don't. Earthbound has a very vocal fandom, but it's a loud minority. Outside of the cult following, not many people really know (or care) about the Mother series.

    Nintendo didn't even think it would be profitable to localize Mother 3 for the GBA. I doubt they're going to see much money in developing an entirely new game from the ground up.
