    "After almost two years of hard slog, Starmen.net's Mother 3 fan translation patch has finally been completed, and will be released at the end of this week ... a whole month ahead of schedule! That's according to the latest blog entry on the project's site, in which team member Mato records that, "Testing's pretty much over now. Some bugs did turn up over the last few days, but they were all minor and quickly remedied. Some really hard-to-spot typos were also found and fixed."

    Joyous news indeed, though the patch will require a few other things before it's of any use: namely a slot-2 flashcart, a GBA emulator, and -- cough -- an entirely unauthorized ROM copy of the Japanese game. While we don't condone piracy, a western localization of Mother 3 doesn't exactly look likely at this stage, and we do support such passionate projects. Hit up this FAQ to learn more, and don't forget to check out some beautiful, Anglicized Mother 3 screens."

    From Where???
    i like the part where he says "was counting on some gbatemp people to help provide a detailed guide about flash carts/cards, but it looks like it’s not going to happen." i never saw a post asking for help. i would have gladly typed of a 20min guide to gba flash linkers, and flash kits.

    I will most likely buy a new 3-in-1 to try this, so I don't have to play it on a PC emulator. 0.5 inch pixels suck.

    I have been debating what to play this on. NDS? Wii VBA? Laptop VBA? PSP?

    I've finally decided: I'm busting out the old GBA:SP and X-ROM 512.

    Yeah, definitely use the trusty ol' equipment, Heran Bago. [​IMG]

    I'm really excited for this! I've been playing EarthBound since I was eight, ready for something new hehe.
