    Isn't this just an emulator wrapped in a channel? Looks cool, but to say it's newsworthy.. meh. Besides, this is Wii stuff, not Wii U

    Tell me how to create my own GBA channel for the Wii and I'd say make it front page! ;)

    I wish this were somehow programmed to force Mother 1+2 to load into Mother 1 since the Mother 2 side is hardly translated, but the Mother 1 side is done very well.
    Then Mother 2 (Earthbound) could just load the SNES version and everything would be wonderful.

    I came here thinking it was an official remake... :(
    "Hello microwave Oven! Thanks for ur comment! I'm fixing this issue right now! No Mother 1+2 on the game, only the original version of both games!!" Looks like he is planning to scrap Mother 1+2 for Earthbound Zero/1 and Earthbound (2)

    I actually just checked the Starmen.net thread and it looks like he already did it! Looks like I'm installing this onto my Wii tomorrow~

    Edit: Dang it. Didn't realize it wasn't available for download yet D:

    Why is it so slow (the audio is choppy)? A the GBA port of Mother 2? The Super Famicom/Snes version has better audio ;)

    A lot of GBA ports of SNES games haave poorer music than their SNES counterparts on original hardware. (Compare Donkey Kong Country with its GBA port, you'll see what I mean) With emulation, the experience is only going to become worse.

    You can just run an emulator on Wii. Earthbound Zero has been fully translated on NES for a looooong time, Earthbound has it's official SNES version and the starmen.net Mother 3 translation has been out for years. The only real reason to even have this is for the aesthetic appeal.

    Edit: Nvm, I just saw that he is actually going to use the original games instead and actually the intro and menus were pretty kick ass, makes me want to get it when it's released!

    Oh, I know, GBA to Snes was pretty spotty at best. Final Fantasy IV, V, and VI were also poorly emulated, the music just plain sucked in comparison, the GBA doesn't have a dedicated DSP, it's part of the CPU. The Wii can't emulate the GBA that well anyway, except for RetroArch.

    At least Final Fantasy 5, 6, and I think 4 have patches for that :P

    True, but the games suffer slowdowns during large spell animations and have glitched Mode 7 (as in very slow 3D effects).

    Take note Nintendo, you can make a killer off of this.
