    Just imagine how amazingly awesome it would all be, full quality voice acting, visuals as beautiful as those in Fragile, well made cutscenes and no more Silent protagonists when you're in control of them.

    I know it ain't happenin, but it should

    No it wouldn't be awesome nor would it actually be a Mother game.

    They could retain the same feel of the EarthBound/Mother games and improve on it.
    I said with Fragile quality graphics, not fragile-style graphics, the game would keep its artstyle, art direction and all but it would be so much more emotional with the right cutscenes and voice acting.

    Don't get me wrong it's great as is, but I'd love a full on Wii remake even more if done right.

    Yeah, but why not just make Mother IV? Too soon for a remake IMO. All the time to remake it would be better served making a whole new game.

    This.
    Having 2 different games is MUCH better than two versions of the same game.

    Unless it's on the Apple Newton [​IMG]

    NOA shows no love for the Mother series.

    Don't expect anything from Reggie.

    Jesus, I'd hope it'd be a lot damn better looking than Fragile--I haven't seen a game that dark and muddy in a very long time.

    ...Sorry to say that, but I'm afraid you didn't really "get" what makes the Mother series. |:

    But yeah, while it would be a shame to see the pixel-art style go, this good an' old mockup shows it could look really good if nicely done:

    hey I remember those fake screens lol

    And Fragile looks amazing, it's dark and gritty sure, but it still looks awesome from both a technical and artistic perspective, by using a graphics engine similar to that of Fragile they could make Mother 3 look a lot like this

    but the WW look ain't half bad either, I'd just prefer something that looks more watercolor/painting look to it.

    Instead of a Mother 3 remake, I'd rather have a new entry in the Mother series just for Wii.

    Mother 3's pixel art is beautiful. Why would you want to get rid of it?

    They should do another game in Wind Waker's cel-shaded style. It seems like a waste to reserve it for only one console game.

    it is, I even have it as my wallpaper [​IMG] but I still want a more cinematic Mother 3 experience even though the game is beautiful and charming as is.
    It's amazing how much emotion these tiny sprites manage to convoy thanks to excellent writing, music and storytelling.
